To Bro or Not to Bro?

For awhile now I've largely gone as "Sergei Brokofiev" or just "Brokofiev" in most online arenas (though my old college nickname "Davidoff" still gets used from time to time). There's nothing quite like adding a little dudebro to a post-Romantic composer's name to bring him fully into the modern era.

For my Twitch profile picture and Twitter background, I wanted to use an image of Prokofiev, but somehow dudebroed up a little bit. I started by adding the classic 8-bit "deal with it" sunglasses:

Tier-one dudebro

I'm fairly fond of it, but then I went ahead and grayscaled a Scumbag Steve hat and put it on his head, and I can't tell if this brings it up to the perfect level of dudebro or if it's overkill:

Tier-two dudebro

What do you think? It's not like most people will even recognize what "Sergei Brokofiev" is a play on, let alone a photo of the man. I'll probably just toy around with both.
