Can you name these people and things?

In recognition of our 20th birthday we created a redux of this iconic album cover
populated with people that inspire us. We held a contest to see who could name
the most people and items in the photo.


The winner is Haley Durkee who won by a whisker, with four more correct

to Haley who will receive a 20th Birthday Bash t-shirt.
