Has anyone ever commented on a band shirt you were wearing?
My only experience stems from a brief encounter in college, I was wearing my favorite Black Flag t-shirt (Nervous Breakdown) and a *very* fat girl passed by me and said "Excellent taste!!" I've never met any punk bros or qt punk gfs which is kinda what I was hoping for when I first bought it.
Yeah people ask me what the designs/logos are all the time. The only shirt I wear that anyone knows is a Green Mind Dino Jr one. I've had multiple people in their 40s compliment me for it.
>was wearing pic related
>went to Ralph's to buy some groceries
>This dude probably in his mid to late 20's stares me down
>I stare at him and he says "nice taste, my fellow patrician"
> I said "t-thanks man"
I wonder if he's here right now
My high school hipster English teacher didn't like my Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia t-shirt.
And not because she had something against Dimmu Borgir.
This was before the SJW uprising, she was a precursor.
>own a Neu! t-shirt
>people always say stuff like "what does your t-shirt mean?"
>"what does that say? nev? new?"
>have to school these plebs and tell them it's "noy"
My mom hid my Rush shirt in middle school. The Signals one with the Dalmatian about to pee on a fire hydrant.
My middle school found the band name inappropriate because 'Rush' and drugs are synonymous, apparently.
When I was a kid, I went to the beach one day with my dad and had no shirts to wear so he let me borrow a Grateful Dead shirt. Old guys left and right kept complementing me. One even said to my dad, "Gotta get 'em into it when they're young!"
I need more music attire. All I have is a sweater with OK Computer's art on it and a Rings Of Saturn shirt from a friend.
>at a festival
>walking from campsite wearing ASIWYFA tee
>pass another dude with a different ASIWYFA tee
>we both point at each other and go EYYYYY
Varg has never promoted white supremacy or racism, confirmed for basing opinions on Metalsucks articles
Arguably self-defense, Euronymous was the definition of a waste of space, and everyone believed that he would have killed Varg for attention/hype.
Nice specificity mane
I would have made fun of you for wearing a Dimmu Burger shirt too
Got a Run The Jewels shirt a few weeks back and I've at least received 6 compliments on it so far from fans I bump into while going about my day.
My favorite experience however was when I was wearing a Melt Banana shirt once and a businessman with a full suit and briefcase crossing the street looked over to me and shouted "MELT BANANA RULE MAN!!" and threw the horns up at me.
was wearing a burzum s/t shirt at a local indie show (the bands were terrible but hey free live music) and a dude comes up to talk to me about my shirt and black metal in general. We traded bandcamp links to our respective music projects and his band, although broken up, was some solid as fuck pop-punk. Was pretty cool.
When I saw mineral in November I think I got some comments about my American Football shirt, got me talking to some cool people about early emo. I talked in depth with some old coworkers about local hardcore crews and deathcore bands because of shirts too.
Once. Primus shirt I got at a concert in 2012, next day some dude at uni recognized it, liked it, then learned that he missed the concert.
>Didn't checked the back of the shirt, it was the 2011 tour dates
>drunk off my ass at some chicks house
>greasy dude with amebix shirt
"LOCK UP YOUR CHILDREN THE AXEMAN IS COMING"
>he was like "what"
>walking home down east michigan by the hospital at 3 am
>drunk as shit kid with "FEAR" scrawled onto his shirt
>looks like a cruster, but there was no dog with bandanna in sight so i'm not 100%
"ayy I love FEAR!"
"whats your favorite song man?"
"BOMB THE RUSSIANS!"
"then they'll never get to you!!"
>mfw that kid
>be a fat old metal head
>wear fat old metal head shirt
>go to bar or show
>other fat old metal heads wearing shirt from other bands comment
>buy each other drinks while wives/gfs talk shit about record collections and shows
About half the shirts I own are band shirts, fight me /fa/ ,mostly copped from shows I've been to.
Game recognized with all of em at least once
>tfw nobody likes your Snowing shirt
People comment a lot on a Jawbreaker shirt I have too, ofc because they like the morton salt girl on it not for the band.
some pleb tried to tell me that anything post-36 chambers is just as good as 36 chambers today
also this is like my best band shirt, coolest decal by far
whoops wrong one, but thats an old glass casket shirt that fucking rules (thats an awesome deathcore band pre btbam)
I wear some black metal shirts and long sleeves, but only of pioneering and important bands. When people complement me I just act false and then wish they would die because they probably have shit taste and still don't know the real meaning and story of black metal yet alone know which bands matter.
Met lots of cool neo-nazi chicks hanging out at their biker bars wearing pic related
Went to buy a phone a while back and was wearing an Altar of Plagues tshirt.
Guy selling me the phone told me I had good taste and that he was friends with the band.
Turned out he used to be the bassist in The Wounded Kings (UK Doom band) for a while and performed with them
RIP that tshirt I fucking miss you
I had a Behemoth - Demigod shirt that I wore a lot in High School and often people would comment on it since it had the album art, which is pretty eye-catching.
Some people would ask what my Lurker of Chalice shirt said since the band logo is practically unreadable at a glance.
That's pretty much it.
I was wearing a Lamb of God shirt one night and a qt came up to me and told me that it looked cool and that she liked the band. I ended up in her bed several hours later.
I would have never expected this to happen - she didn't even look like a metal fan at all.
Oh, and also an old english man (like 55 years old) that taught in an english academy I used to go to looked at that same shirt and asked me "Sonic Youth?" as if he was surprised. I answered "yes, Sonic Youth" and that was all. I'm not even sure if he knew the band, it was a really weird moment.
In high school I was wearing a t-shirt with the Dead Kennedys logo on it. People complimented it a few times, most of them just saying "nice shirt" and asking me what the logo is supposed to be.
I have this on a sweater. One of my friends who's a hip hop head said it was trippy.
I also got asked if I was a satanist one time when I wore a Dark Funeral shirt.
>Used to wear Burzum and Darkthrone shirts all the time
>People started random convos on the bus all the time
>Rather than talk about music they just talked about immigration and how they hate life
>Try to talk about bands I was listening to at the time, conversation got weird as they seemed disinterested in talking about music
>Stopped wearing shirts with bands on them
I got a 4 Skins patch sewed on the front of my hoody and a dude at the store commented on it a few weeks ago.
I was with the other dudes on my crew and they couldn't believe it, they thought I was literally the only one in the world to listen to them (as in, I think they thought I made the band up just to have something phallic and borderline offensive to wear)
In reality, both the dude and myself were surprised to run into another old Oi! fan in a very small northern plains farm town
Over the course of my life theres no way I could even count the coversations I've had initiated by a band t shirt or patch. It's even led to me getting laid.
tfw almost all the shirts I wear are band shirts
tfw everyone who sees my in the kveikur shirt thinks i support the kkk
I wore a Death Grips shirt to a festival this summer. Some fat neckbeard said something like
>h-hey nice shirt
and almost ran away. Also two guys dressed like fucking Yung Lean yelled "FUCK YEAH DEATH GRIIIIIPPPSS".
needless to say I'm never wearing this shirt at a festival/concert again.
Saw a guy wearing an Aphex Twin shirt and he was as awful as you'd imagine any /mu/ retard to be. Kept on using the word "faggot" and giving me unnecessary details and facts about artists he hates.
never heard of it until now
but now that i have im tempted to buy this from them
Nobody I know listens to HANL, but have started a few conversations over the Sonic Youth one
All I get are neckbeards in slayer hoodies saying "Slayer is better" when I wear my 'Thrax shirt. Guess we're all stuck in the 80s.
Unrelated to the thread but did they ever play a sleep riff (Dragonaut I think) in the middle of the set. Really odd.
Once in a Suicide Note shirt, once in a Rosetta shirt. Which is a bummer, because when I really think about it, the only reason I wear band shirts is in case somebody with similar taste wants to start a conversation about it. :/
"Dude Kurt Cobain commited suicide because he turned into an MTV product, if you would actually like his music you would respect his with not to be one".
And he was right, we burned that t-shirt later when we were drunk. I was 16 by the way.
Basic conversation about Sonic Youth and similar band recommendations
>Black Flag shirt:
We were at a crust-punk concert and this midget dwarf started screaming about how much he loved Black Flag, Sex Pistols, Misfits and all the other entry-level punk bands you can think of.
At the same time the vocalist was trying to anounce the next song, vocalist demanded the crowd to violenty pogo us around at the next song.
As the crowd started cheering I tried to slip away so the band started playing right away, went home with a black eye and a bruised mangled body thanks to a fucking Black Flag shirt and an obnoxious fan.
I was arrested in the one with the pig dressed up as a cop getting chopped up with a hacking knife, multiple officers giggled at seeing the print and probably also because they know I was theirs for two whole weeks.
Some guy loved Sublime so much he took me home to meet his girlfriend, all 3 of us smoked weed for two days straight and he insisted I touched his girlfriend's boobs to agree on how great they look and how firm they were.
Pretty sure they wanted a threesome but I politely declined because they both looked like their house didn't have a shower and the guy was very very pushy and I'm an autist.
Bunch of pubescent girls coming up to me asking me why I'm wearing a girl's shirt, took all my strength not to go full fedora on them.
Besides that mostly just quick glances from girls wearing one too but probably having no fucking clue what the band actually plays.
My ex has a phone cover these days and when I tried to make her listen to it atleast once she tod me I was being an elitist asshole.
I wore this Grateful Dead shirt to my biology lab today. Stella Blue sn't really one of their well known songs so nobody's ever commented on it. My 60+ year old professor said something about it immediately, turns out he's a huge Deadhead. can't wait to talk to him more about them
>wearing my NMH on uni
2 people approach me
>"look at this pleb"
>"haha, for sure brother"
I was at a bookstore and a cute barista complimented me on my Burzum shirt. We got to talking for a bit, but she was only familiar with the true Norwegian scene, which was a bit disappointing. Still, the encounter was pretty cool.
>wearing pic related
>"hey anon that's a cool shirt what is it?
>"it's a band
>"oh wow it looks cool
the name of the band is in big ass letters too, wtf.
>but she was only familiar with the true Norwegian scene
You're acting like this is a bad thing.
I hope you die alone, she's probably fucking some Chad that's exclsuively into first wave and early 2nd wave Norweigan black metal right now whilst in tears of laughter at the fact that people actually listen to USBM and anything made after 1996.
a qt complimented me on my Streetlight Manifesto shirt last year, and one night I wore my Aphex Twin shirt out (the one that everyone says people mistake for Half-Life) and two people specifically complimented my Aphex shirt, most notably some guy on the subway who I never really got a good look at who yelled "APHEX TWIN" as I was getting out and then gave me a thumbs up
got the most compliments, a qt girl hugged me and some other guy wanted to do ecstasy with me at a fly lo show
>Deafheaven some guy that looked like he frequented fa and mu complimented me on it. He had only heard sunbather and he didn't seem to really care for them
on another note every time I compliment someone on their shirt 'hey, cool *insert band name* they're really awkward about it. I try talk about the band with them because I love music/talking about it and they seem so blaise, just me?
>they're really awkward about it
Because 8-9/10 times they only heard a few songs off youtube from them, and you bringing it up puts them in a position to be called out on being a poser
>Have black and white ELHR shirts, wear them all the time
>"No fun, not ever? Oh I get it, it's like you don't like working, cause of that lady on the shirt, haha"
>Have to explain like an autist that the label is owned by a tortured man and is 100% unironic
>Nigger wearing sagging jeans, a snapback, Jays, and a black shirt
>He turns around
>Dillinger Esc Plan
>"N-nice shirt man, DEP are great"
I still don't know if he just got the shirt because of the design, or if there are thug-looking people who listen to mathcore. It's a strange world.
Quit defending his innocence and revel in his guilt, be proud of him accomplishments and belief, and trust that he is your savior
Bought this last night at a show. Gotta support local shit.
Was wearing this shirt in a Torchie's Tacos one day, and the waiter commented on it.
Him: Dude i saw them live, it was amazing!
Me: Oh yeah? Cool man!
Him: Yeah dude, I think The Offspring played too, you shoulda been there!
I saw a girl a few weeks ago (qt) wear the album art to converge's last album (pic related) under her jacket with a really cute black skirt.
I was hanging out with other girls already so I couldn't stop and make conversation but I pointed and said Love your shirt! and she said thanks.
Didn't go further, but it made me feel good.
Had a King of the Beach tee that I stopped wearing after having everyone and their mother ask me for drugs. It got me laid a couple times but I felt like a dealer walking around in the fucking thing.
this shirt reeks of kvlt, stale body odor and cheap beer mixed with past camp fires
Shirt, naw. A hoodie, yeah. I got a black hoodie with a red afx symbol I'd silkscreened on. I've gotten about 4 half life comments, but I got 3 comments, during my first semester of uni, on it being aphex twin.
I remember one was actually a short hair qt in the library who stood up and practically shout "APHEX!" while pointing/looking at me. between me being an autist & the library being full due to finals week, i just gave a thumbs up and said "aw yeah" super quietly
i've gotten a few comments back when i used to wear this, mostly it was people asking how long it's been since i've taken a shower
>How metalheads make friends
>wear band shirt
>someone likes it
>proceed to talk about metal for an hour
I know I'm gonna get shit on for this but I wear band shirts everyday. I get compliments all the time and pretty often strike up conversations with cool people. I met one of my best friends because He liked my Gojira shirt and I liked his Amon Amarth shirt.
