I think Because might be the most mentioned song on the forum.

I chose mine (after numerous changes over the two years I've been here) because I love the 1993 era of Björk's music and life, and this photo from the Debut photo shoot was the perfect symbol of that. Plus, a lovely Bowie lightning strike from @Beatlebug was a great addition a-hard-days-night-john-3

I chose mine (the butcher cover for future reference, in case I ever change it to a bunch of fluffy puppies) Because I think it symbolizes one of my favorite aspects of The Beatles, which is how they actually grew up and stopped being lovable cute mop-tops, made the culture and society change along with them, and became creative and even more amazing. But when they first tried to do something interesting, they were shut down because it "didn't match their 'image.'" (It may also be my own unconscious commentary on my some aspects of my personality a-hard-days-night-john-6).

I only recall two, the Stone Roses and...what was that other? the Microphones?

^ Precisely. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I've always felt bemused at being called the chameleon of rock. Doesn't a chameleon exert tremendous energy to become indistinguishable from its environment?

I picked my profile picture for two reasons. First, one of my favorite things about the Beatles is their humor, and also because I think it’s ironic that a picture exists of John and Paul literally fighting.

I can't remember, did you ever rotate through all five variations?

Briefly, @vonbontee @Von Bontee.

I rotated them all over about a month when I held a poll to decide which should be my avatar. The current one came a close second and I promised I would use it for roughly three months a year. It got it's first three month spell a couple of years ago and, well, the spare tyre hasn't been back in the boot since...

https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....settle-on/ explains it. I remember that when I first joined, #1 was definitely the avatar, so there must have been a change sometime in 2017?

Ah, thanks. I recall the poll (and lobbying for your current one) but forgot the month-long preview period. 

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I don't recall RN having a different variation during my time as a BBer, but maybe I missed it
