DescriptionThis sticker features a famous quote from Woody Guthrie, American folk musician and social activist. Woody's famed anti-fascist slogan: 'THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS'. The legendary words he put on guitars he played. Woody owned many acoustic guitars during his musical career. Photographs of him show that he played at least two adorned with the slogan "THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS." In the best-known, now-iconic photo, the words are hand-written in large letters on the body of a guitar Guthrie has in front of him, hanging by a strap around his neck. In other photos, the words are on what appears to a hand-lettered sticker at the top of a guitar he is playing. " -- Quote/counterquote website
