Why do I get a lot of comments on my Beastie Boys shirt?

    So this month alone I must've gotten 25 comments on the shirt or people saying they saw them live. Some times I talk with them a little bit, if they know a bit on them, but most of the time I just smile.

    Other shirt comments counts (approx):

    Iron Maiden=0 (I get alot of strange looks when I wear it)
    Pink Floyd=3 or 4
    Bob Marley=1 (dad's girlfriend)
    Black Keys=0
    Beatles=2

    Why is this?

    Broader, more modern fan base?

    I have a Melvins shirt with my avatar on the front, and a two headed cat that says pussy that gets comments from everyone I know, and some people that I have never met. My Spreading the Disease anthrax shirt gets more comments from older people. But my corrosion of conformity shirt gets a lot from people who exclaim what an awesome band they were.

    Correction. I got a few comments on the Maiden shirt at the Austin TB GTG.

    Anyways, Na the people are always like 25-37. Seems weird to me.

    that age group sounds pretty accurate- but i see what you mean- what can you even talk about when it comes to the beastie boys?

    The one of mine that always gets comments is the beat-up old Venom shirt. Usually from folks younger than me, strangely enough.

    I have seen them play about 4 or 5 times and they put on one of if not the best live shows I have seen. I assume your joking right?:confused: You are familiar with their music after License to Ill right?

    It is a licensed to ill tour shirt. Normally favorite songs by them or even Mike D if they really know about them. Mike D seems to be everyones favorite :D

    The Beastie Boys are one of the most demographic-less bands in music history. Just about everybody I know has a soft spot for NYC's clown princes. This might require a poll...new thread impending. :cool:

    Which Iron Maiden shirt do you have?

    I have a Mastodon shirt that seems to get the most conversation.

    Hallowed be thy name... I get ALOT of strange looks.
     
  20. The T-shirt I've got that gets the most comments is my King Of The Hill one.
