Well they produce a lot of hardcore, but the *other* kind of hardcore.

Maybe this thread should be closed down and a permanent link to Urban Outfitters posted instead.

going on their wiki page Yellow Claw sound like the most Dutch thing ever

the dude's shirt seems to be some sort of bespoke thing, the lettering is behind the scissors on the design?

I've been on a Dead bender these last few days, so that really mellows my trip right about now.

Seems like you could really write any story imaginable by sourcing 9 tweets.

Yeah, as long as you sign off by writing:

Why is everybody so offended? Metallica shirts are everywhere! Are there not bigger things to be upset about?

Timbaland is the latest hip-hop/R&B type to be seen sporting a punk rock jacket, his being leather and adorned with Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, Crass and the like logos.

The Metal injection website reports on it with some of the snide commentary that we don't use here because we liek that sort of thing.

The website has a link to the interview.

Alex in NYC brought this to my attention:
Message to Kids: Rush Isn’t Cool

This article by Andy Cush at was prompted by Travis Scott wearing a Rush shirt at the Grammys.

Even funnier to me is that it was evidently Kylie Jenner's shirt which likely infuriates a lot of people to no end. It certainly upset Alex.

I find the article lame for a bunch of reasons, but they have nothing to do with being mad anyone is wearing a Rush shirt.

King Crimson is just as dorky and isn't on Spotify.

Thought thread revive would be for this

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 12 February 2019 17:39 (seven months ago) link

I still think the article is actually lovingly praising Rush but either I'm way off or everyone else is misunderstanding it, based on social media.

I don't think a Rush hater would reel off their proggiest deep cuts like that.

I can’t find it right now, but there’s a recent-ish selfie of David Sylvian sporting a black Boris (the Japanese noisegaze band) T-shirt.
