Wearing a T from a band you don’t know? I think it’s cool. It’s called irony.
Did you do a kick flip to Indy grind on your cat?
I can't skate to save my life and I don't have a cat, so no.
That's a quote from days gone by in TBOT, from a former member who has since passed away.
I recognized its form but no idea of the significance.
I have a Doobie Brothers hat.
On the upside, I made a lot of money on EBay selling off my old concert shirts that I couldn’t wear anymore. I didn’t question each buyer’s knowledge of the band before completing the transaction.
You missed a great research opportunity. It could have told us so much about society.
Very true. The peak in the vintage concert shirt market hit about 10 years ago. Not sure how it is now. I also sold a lot of trucker hats when that craze started. My grandfather gave me a entire stash of hats he'd accumulated over the years. I was getting $40-50 a pop for those.
Not exactly the same, but a friend of mine recently told me that he was wearing a shirt from an old punk band inside a coffee shop when some hipster stopped to make some sneering comment about it and my buddy realized that the kid was trying to imply that he was a phoney for wearing it. Keep in mind that my friend was definitely old enough to be the kid’s dad and has been into the band for about 30 years now. He just stood there waiting while the kid dissipated like a fart.
if each one of us didn't have some reason to feel superior to 'them', where would any of us be?
Weren’t they called Guns N’ Roses?
No No No to Miley Cyrus (although her legs are not too shabby!)
Lady Gaga admits to being a huge Iron Maiden fan, and supposedly has been listening to them for years, so she gets a pass.
I, a middle-aged Maiden fan, was wearing one of my IM tees a few years ago when I crossed paths with a 20-something woman wearing the exact same shirt. I nodded to her, gave her the metal salute/devil's horns gesture...
and said, "Up the Irons" (a familiar saying among Iron Maiden fans). She looked at me like I was speaking Mandarin Chinese. I pondered for a brief moment whether I should try to explain, but decided nevermind.
This happened to me one time. Turns out, I had been induced into a dream state by a local hypnotist, and I was, in fact, speaking Mandarin Chinese. Quite the wake-up call!
Only after I stab my Mom with a Linkin Park pen.........
I miss Mike Money.
I hope this time sh*tty people like this get what they deserve.
Still waiting they sue these other sh*ts:
From Black Flag to Joy Division: the retro band T-shirts selling for $265
Unfortunately you can't sue stupid people for buying and wearing them.
