Joe Strummer from The Clash made it famous, putting a sticker that read "Ignore Alien Orders" on his guitar back in the 1970s, and it's mostly known today thanks to the hit TV series Halt and Catch Fire. While most don't know exactly why it was a local scene trend/slogan in San Francisco prior to Strummer using putting it on his Fender, we do!

This design is a recreation of this sticker.

Here's the story: It's an old Berkely hippie adage, from two guys, Bob and Ted, who came up with the idea in the early to mid-60s originally while hiking together before they were being shipped off to Vietnam. Around that time, Ted, a musician and a craftsman living in San Francisco, was up late one night with one of the biggest dope dealers in the city, whose occupation and consumption made him a bit paranoid. The dealer started on a spiel that "the aliens were going to take over." Ted started to trip on how humans should respond, and the classic phrase was born, and it regularly appears as graffiti around the world to this day.

As it still sounded good in the morning, Ted and his friends set up a press-type master and made a photo silkscreen. He printed them in several color combinations; red on yellow, red and blue on white, and red and blue on silver, and gave them to his musician friends (some quite successful) to be passed on and posted all over the world. That's how Joe Strummer got one of the silver ones on his guitar and made the phrase semi-famous.

Jon Sagen, a music promoter who knew Bob and Ted when they created the stickers in Berkeley, helped distribute them to musicians around the world. The Grateful Dead would emboss it on the edges of their albums so buyers would know if they were bootleg or not.

There was a website about Ignore Alien Orders made a while ago, and you can hear Jon tell the origin story here www.ignorealienorders.org, (but you will need Flash to watch the video).
