Branded iPods I'd like to see

As a marketer, I've always thought Apple's branded U2 iPod was a tremendous idea. Imagine having all-access to your favorite band's musical library - all high-quality, all legit. The iPod and the iTunes Music Store, helped by proper (yet infuriating) DRM implementations, really did much for the "atomic economics" of enjoying music, allowing us to concentrate on our favorite individual tracks instead of albums we'd rather avoid.

But I still think it would be cool to have a band's entire discography available and preloaded and ready for playback. While legal issues probably prevent ordering such lists, it would be cool if we could someday request branded iPods, or have bands more liberally agree to release their entire works digitally.

Here's my wish list:
What's yours?

I like the Prince iPod. it would be all purple ;)

I'd like to see an alternative/grunge iPod like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and the like...
Hey Glenn,

Nice. I was going to put some genre-oriented compilation ones there, but I can't even begin to imagine the logistical nightmare those would cause. ;-)

I guess if Sessions and Time-Life Music can do it with thier CD sets, anyone can.
