The Kids-wearing-logos-of-bands-they-don't-know thread

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Scottgun, Dec 13, 2018.

  1. I’ve seen several young girls who wouldn’t know a Tbucket from a Honda wearing VonDutch tees. Makes me a little sad...

    I’m kinda like MJ5150. I have a great old Harley chopper but don’t wear any HD stuff and won’t even wear my leather jacket if I’m not riding. Seen too many sidewalk commandos dressed head to toe in HD stuff that never sat a bike much less would know what my kickstarter is for...

    Last time I was at Target to snag socks etc I saw racks and racks of shirts like Nirvana, Kikoman soy sauce logo, whatever. If a t shirt is like 8 bucks and has nice aesthetics I could see buying one not knowing it was a band. Itd kinda bother me though, especially because I remember that death very vividly, and every beginner guitar/bass player can start with Nirvana. But I guess it's kinda like wearing a Pepsi shirt if you drink coke.
  3. Just checking in here - everybody doing a good job keeping the kids off your lawn?

    Ok great - thanks!

    Carry on.....

    Yeah, me too - although I do know who Nirvana is - or was... When I was that age, they didn't have Buddy Holly or Eddie Cochran T-shirts. If they had been available, I'd have had a bunch of 'em... However, my dinosaur fossil story?
    I was a Staff Sargent living in the barracks in, oh, 1975 or so. My room was next to the laundry room, and one day I was playing the Beatles' Sgt. Peppers' album and just hanging out in my doorway. I was 24 at the time. A couple of younger Airmen came to get their laundry from the dryers (which is really what I was waiting for), and our conversation went like this:
    Airman: "That music's pretty cool. Who is that?"
    Me: "Whaddaya mean, 'Who is that?' It's the Beatles..! The Sgt. Pepper's album!"
    Airman: "Really? I never heard them before.."
    Me: Speechless stare...
    Other Airman: "I have. I think they're some old English band. My older brother liked them.."
    ME: "Just get your clothes out of the dryer, and go the F..k away - NOW."
    Airmen: Yes sir, Sarge.."
    I realized right then that, single or not, even at the tender age of 24 I was too old to be living in a barracks with ... children. By the end of that month, I was living in town. "Who's that?", my dyin' ass...:rollno::rollno:

    Not much to read in Thrasher Magazine, the whole thing is pretty much adds, with the occasional multi pic trick shot. Check out Concrete Wave, great magazine.

    I have a John Deere sweatshirt I wear, but don’t know anything about tractors.

    I wonder if the farmers laugh at me.....

    Well, I haven't read Thrasher since the late 80s. Still have a bunch of issues stashed away somewhere though. Maybe I could sell the lot to some hipster café (ooh, vintage 80s stuff!). :D

    My 14 years old daughter has been singing Bohemian Rhapsody for the last couple of weeks, she does not who Queen is but it seems the song is popular between teens right now.

    I havent played drums since 1967, but I have a hella nice Zildjian hoodie that my drummer daughter in law gave me.

    Worst case I ever saw was a short fat kid in one of my classes, kind of kid who cant move out of his own way. Only time he ever goes in the gym is to find a pop machine. Had a tshirt with that iconic Michael Jordan silouette, and said "Yeah, you got some game...but can you elevate?" Couldnt help but laugh.
  18. My Ramones shirt gets misinterpreted these days.
    It's reads "Hey Ho Let's Go" on the back.
