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?

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.

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.

ilxor has truly been got at and become an ILXor (ilxor), Tuesday, 22 June 2010 18:15 (nine years ago) link

yeah I know it's just it always feels like this implicit "no way Avril likes the Ramones, after all she sucks!" vibe (we had a huge throwdown about that way back) and while I am a little sympathetic to the position "a person should only wear a band/musician t-shirt if they actually like that band/musician" I am deeply unsympathetic to the position "a person whose music I hate couldn't love music I like, it is at the least very unlikely"

there are explicit refutations of that position you hate in this thread, aero, not least from its creator.

quick fast like Rommedahl (zvookster), Tuesday, 22 June 2010 18:49 (nine years ago) link

i mean PE in minor threat tees is just the sort of pluralism that i find cool in visual representation, but no u gotta go rail against something

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

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.

two examples from this thread

This thread would be a lot more fun if it it was less "LOL FAMOUS PERSON DOESN'T KNOW AS MUCH ABOUT BAND AS ME BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO BUSY BEING FAMOUS" and was more "Hey, isn't this neat?"

We're all adults, the fact that one of the jocks likes your favorite band should have stopped bothering you, like, freshman year of college.

just because we're divorced does not mean I won't rep for her

ok I can understand that but I have no idea why you would rep for durst when he wouldn't even give you a call on father's day

Nothing will be as epic/awesome as Jordan in a Bauhaus t-shirt anyway.

How about Angelina Jolie in Crass?

"I've studied my flaws in your reflection
And put them to rights with savage correction
I've turned my statuesque perfection
And shone it over in your direction"

...seems about right.

Well, one of my friends was deeply into tepid indie bollocks, but regularly wore a t-shirt that proclaimed "McFly are actually quite good"!!!!!!!!!

And, what's more, he wasn't being ironic!!!!!! He actually quite liked McFly!!!!! That's why wore so often!!!!!!!

So there!!!!!!!

PE in minor threat tees actually makes like tons of sense to me, in the glen e. friedman type way

An offended Alex In NYC posted this on his Facebook page with the comment: "If Chris Brown can name a single song by the Exploited, I'll eat my sneakers."

counting crows dude loving VU -- esp loaded -- doesn't really seem surprising at all IMO

i agree but it fits the "sound nothing like them" bill well enough

at my funeral my life's work, a screed entitled Disputatio pro declaratione virtutis Loadedis, will be read by mourners as a copy of the master tape is backed over by a monster truck
