OK, so from the HTML source, the following line...

... is what started the italics crap.

So if I just type a whole bunch of "</em>"s, it should work, right?

FUCK YOU ILX, YOU FUCKING SUCK!!!!

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 17:47 (twelve years ago) link

Ah! Now I get it! The "</em>"s become:

&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/em&gt;

Must fiund some way to hard code a less than and a greater than into the source.

clearly, there's nothing wrong or annoying about wearing a t-shirt of a band you're not into, but I do find it odd that anyone would actually WANT to do so.

a t-shirt says 'I like this music', but if that's not true then it suggests that on some level you think maybe you should, which betrays a lack of confidence in your own judgement and a degree of acquiesence to what's considered 'cool' or 'edgy'. or alternatively, it becomes a pointless ironic gesture, like a goth kid in a boyzone T.

but then again, maybe it's just about fancy dress and shouldn't be taken as signifying anything. after all, I am not truly an amazon, but I occasionally dress like wonder woman.

"do people have any awareness at all of when they turn into grizzling grandads?"

nah. comes to us all. one day you're young and carefree and full of joy, the next you're moaning on and on about what's in the top 10 and what's in the music press, even if you haven't heard it, and finding yourself increasingly alienated from what the kids are listening to.

> a t-shirt says 'I like this music'

Not really. It may say "I like this look." Look at it from the other side. You wouldn't wear a shirt you don't like from a band you dig, would you?

actually, I have done and may well do again. within reason.

but I'm an awkward, shabby man who frankly can't be arsed to go clothes shopping. therefore band t-shirts are a godsend for those like me. they enable us to select what we wear without actually having to endure the unpleasant ordeal of thinking about clothing instead of tunes.

Just wanted to mention that I watched this Three 6 Mafia at MTV Spring Break special a couple weeks ago, and one of the 2 guys (I think Juicy J, but it might have been the other one) was wearing a different rock band shirt each time he changed clothes. I believe the shirts were for Guns N Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and one other one which I can't remember now.

Three 6 Mafia do, in fact, worship Satan.

this thread is now a dream section from a Faulkner novel

Hans Rott, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 18:43 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, the thin guy from Three Six Mafia was wearing an Avenged Sevenfold T-shirt on Mind of Mencia when I was flipping through the channels.

Yeah, that dude from Three 6 Mafia is always rocking a different black band t-shirt. I was watching an episode of HollyHood this weekend and he had on Nirvana, Green Day, and a Ramones tee at different points.

Chuck Schuldiner from Death in a Blondie shirt. No doubt his stylist made him wear it.

Did anyone catch that Blondie / Siege / Pestilence triple bill?

NYCNative, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 23:08 (twelve years ago) link

i don't really get this thread...don't musicians all like music that doesn't necessarily sound like the music they play?

also, it's absolutely like not surprising at all that 3-5 mafia would dig metal

"don't musicians all like music that doesn't necessarily sound like the music they play?"

Possibly. But they don't all wear the shirts. I think we have established (with minor exceptions) that this thread is not being judgemental about this practise. We're just posting pictures okay?

I think it's a sex code thing more than an overt statement of affiliation with any particular band/ genre. It's like they're saying, "Although my public/ performance personna is consistently this one thing, this t-shirt is indicative of what'd it be like to have sex with me." At least that's how I interpret that Durst photo, and the Duff one, too.

I'm surprised no wag has yet posted ?uestlove in his Beatles t-shirt yet (unless maybe it's already there and I can't see it)

two years pass...

"Although my public/ performance personna is consistently this one thing, this t-shirt is indicative of what'd it be like to have sex with me." At least that's how I interpret that Durst photo, and the Duff one, too.

So Durst has sex like a Smiths fan and Duff loves like Motorhead.

Classic post.

I can't seem to find a freeze frame anywhere, but my favorite mismatch is the Public Enemy t-shirt on Donnie Wahlberg in the New Kids on the Block "Step by Step" video:

...what about noize laydees wearing Manics shirts? Does that count?

Morley Timmons, Tuesday, 1 June 2010 07:15 (nine years ago) link

three weeks pass...

i always thought it would be funny if some trendy new act wore the shirts of really naff bands like sublime or hoobastank.

max arrrrrgh, Tuesday, 22 June 2010 18:02 (nine years ago) link

hate this q so much

surprise, very few musicians only want to rep for music that sounds like what they do. because, shocker, musicians like lots of different kinds of music. WOW INCREDIBLE THEY MUST BE POSING BY WEARING SHIRTS FOR BANDS THAT DON'T SOUND LIKE WHAT THEY DO.

No one said anything about "posing" -- I thought this was just a thread for pictures of musicians in other bands' shirts.
