The Prodigy are an English electronic music band formed in the 1990's. The band has used several logos through the decades. In particular, from the mid-1990s to 2000 their logo featured an image of an ant. Does anyone know about the real meaning behind their ant logo?

  • The name of the group comes from the keyboard Liam Howlett used to create many of the early releases. Commented Jan 28, 2020 at 14:40

I asked my friend Paul, currently sunning himself in Spain, and listening to the Prodigy back catalogue, and he found this Instagram post from which this quote :

Last wednesday, November 21, Liam Howlett gave the special interview for theprodigy.ru, where he noticed: «The ant is used because they are small and powerfull, that's how we think of ourselves — you might not hear from us for a bit and then BLAMMM! But if you look closely, we are always there».

I can't locate the Nov 21 2018 interview, but sounds like this is it.
