Good God what a catastrophe the new iTunes icon is. When we are listening to (for example) 'Bad Romance' why would we want THIS monstrosity
anywhere within our field of vision?
It looks even worse when it's actually icon-sized.
Fortunately, you're not stuck with it. In OSX you can follow these instructions (you might need this to help you out), and in Windows… Well, maybe if you're using Windows you're less bothered about an application icon that looks like it belongs to a shit Windows program.
