How many songs can you think of that have the word STOP in them? Apparently graffiti artists have been able to think of quite a few and have used them to alter stop signs all over the country. These are our favorites.

1. Stop... Hammer time!

From MC Hammer’s 1990 song "U Can’t Touch This." MC Hammer is perhaps best remembered for his pants and for the line adorning this sign.

2. Stop in the name of Love
