Rock the Casbah by Shepard Fairey

We don't know if the Sharif don't like this, but we do! Shepard Fairey, he of the iconic OBEY and Obama "Hope" posters, created this extremely rare silkscreen print on wood panel of The Clash's Rock the Casbah. If you want one, you're out of luck - one of the only two prints ever made was sold for US$18,400: Link

Like I mentioned in the comment above, it's the headgear of the wrong continent. I don't think he lifted it specifically from Air India's mascot, however, as that's a pretty iconic image of any Maharaja.

Wrong headgear for the region, definitely. Or Fairey could be playing to the line "you have to let that raga drop" with raga referring to a type of melody in Indian music. Maybe that's giving him too much credit though.
