It used to influence me. To a certain extent it still does. Although I can see the humour, I would not want to be seen with a CD by Big Cock or one named "Greatest Tits" as Ted Poley released a couple of years ago.

Today, the image that would put me off is of people who either dressed like idiots on the cover (Treat's Coup de Grace), or still have an 80's hair band look in 2013. Bands like Lordi don't appeal to me because of their look (OK the music is not very good either).

I still can appreciate Alice Cooper's and Kiss's look though. It is a trademark, and it has been there for 40 years. But they are two expceptions to the rule.

I think Bon Jovi have been very shrewd in the way they dealt with their image. I think it is one of the many reasons why they still are successful today. The change around "Keep The Faith" allowed them to escape the "hair band" tag and reinvent themselves.

Overall, music is still the most important thing. But in a day and age where there is so much choice, the image might not encourage me to check out certain bands.

Some views on certain topics would also put me off listening to the music (Ted Nugent or Stryper for instance).
