We're less than a week away from the 51st NFL Super Bowl, and suffice to say, a lot has changed since the championship game's inception more than a half-century ago.
Tastes, design and the game itself have come a long way in the last 51 years, and in honor of this transformation, we've ranked all 51 Super Bowl logo designs from ugliest to greatest. We've also provided fake sponsorships for each logo based solely on its aesthetc, because it had to be done.
We think you'll agree when we say that a lot of Super Bowl logos could also serve as signs for establishments where Patrick Swayze is the bouncer.
