Punk rockers alter socialist logo

Corrected translation: 
Cuban punk rockers Porno para Ricardo created a logo proclaiming Party, Drugs, Sex, Meat (Fiesta, Drogas, Sexo, Carne).

It's a spoof of the Young Communist Union's logo, which says the revolutionary's life should be centered around three things: Study, Work, Rifle (Estudio, Trabajo, Fusil).

The Young Communist Union logo show revolutionary leaders Camilo Cienfuegos, Che Guevara and Julio Antonio Mella. The punk rockers, whose profanity-laced songs have become popular among some young people in Cuba, inserted their faces instead in a logo that must infuriate some of Cuba's socialist leaders.
