Original Van Halen First Album Artwork Being Auctioned On eBay

Idolator is reporting that an eBay user is selling off his copy of the original artwork for Van Halen’s first album, which not only has the band’s original, name-written-out-in-full logo, it has a picture of the band where David Lee Roth is relegated to the background–and sorta-mimicking Johnny Rotten:

The reputed story is that David Lee Roth spotted a Sex Pistols similar pose and requested the same for his cover. When this version was done, he rejected it as he thought it was too punky.
Noel also told me that Alex hated his photo, it made him “look like a giant”.

The auction currently has a "Buy it now" price of $2500.00.
