25-Foot-Tall Aluminum Bass Guitar Man

Officially "The Singing River Sculpture" (weirdly, the same name as his fellow giant band member in nearby Sheffield) looks to be well kept, especially this close to a high school. There's an in-depth history of the local music scene on plaques in front of him.

The plan was to erect four different giant rock 'n' rollers in neighboring towns; so far two have been built, and none since this one in 2014.
