I know that wearing a bandana in the back pocket could mean you're in a gang.

Although, watching Rock am Ring 2008, James Hetfield had a black bandana in the left back pocket. Then watching the Scream, Aim, Fire vid, Heafy is wearing a black bandana in the back right pocket.

I'm just curious on what wearing a black bandana in the back pocket is supposed to symbolize since wearing a red/blue one in the back pocket definitely means youre part of a gang.

Wearing any color bandana in your pocket signifies that your a part of one gang or another... around here in SoCal anyways. Theyre color coded by gang. Red is one gang, blue is another, yellow is a different rival gang, and so and so forth.

So dont wear one because some gangster might think youre a rival or something and bust a cap in ya.

some people do it because they think it looks cool, I keep one when I play live because I like to be able to wipe the sweat/blood/vaginal discharge off my hands occasionally so it doesn't screw up my playing. Hetifield could keep one for the same reason, or maybe just because he's a tool.

Generally white & black are presumed not to be gang related colours. I have dreads and love to wear bandanas to keep them out of my face, so I only ever where black-based or white-based ones.

It's probably just a style. I hang mine out of my back pocket when it's not on my head.

in NorCal (since SoCal got brought up), its just any other random fashion thingy, but only if youre white and not acting too shifty. i'll put one back there if i have it with me and dont have anywhere else to put it. in my experience, gangs have it around the neck

Blah, Matt Tuck* Got the Matt's confused.

meh, is it just a style to wear a black/white bandana in the back pocket? I'd be scared to walk down the street with a black bandana in my back pocket.

Why, black generally isn't affiliated with any gangs, and people in gangs (the kind of people I'm assuming you're afraid of) know this, and probably aren't going to bother you.

I did once, however, go to a strip club where I was asked to remove my bandana for gang related reasons. It was white and had black skulls on it.

I have never been bothered otherwise, although I've been told that when I have one on with my hood up, I look like I'm about to **** someone up. The beard doesn't help either.

black is associated with young jeezy, thats for sure. Don't discount black as a neutral gang color.

James Hetfield's is usually purple, since purple is his favorite color. Other than that, I don't know the reasoning behind it.

I walk around with pink panties in my back pocket (13 year old girls just whip them off and throw them at me), and people often mistake them for a bandana. This is likely the same with Hetfield, as he is a well-known poon-magnet.



Btw, I am the youngest Jonas Brother, if you couldn't surmise that. I think my name is... Kevin Jonas?

i live in so cal, and i dont see scene kids with purple bandanas. in fact, the dont even wear them(i havent seen many), and the ones that i've seen have random colour bandana's.

oh, and black, white and gray are neutral :)

Well the scene kid thing might just be my school

Gray is neutral, white might be, but black is a gang color, primarily in Chicago

Wasnt it Joe? I dont know :p:

Anyway, wearing bandanas of any sort usually result in getting shot, but the colors to avoid like the plague are red and blue (Bloods and Crips)

plus if youre Mexican(not sure about other hispanics) NEVER wear RED in So Cal and NEVER wear BLUE in Nor Cal

Not even your boxers

Red and Blue are primarily gang signs (blue+left=crips, red+right=bloods)
Otherwise every color has some type of meaning within gay culture, and other that that I'm pretty sure its pretty much personal preference like what color YOU want and which side YOU want.

I read somewhere that outside of gang and gay culture bandanas are primarily representative of your mood. Like white is inner peace, tranquility, and the darker the color the darker your mood. What side you wear it on is simply preference

I've never actually seen anyone over here wear a bandana in a back pocket for a long time. I have a right tool of a mate who used to do it, but it wasn't anything gang related. Over here in England gangs aren't really much of a problem (at least where I live).

Here in the South Bronx, wearing a black bandanna in your back pocket just means you're neutral. I'm sure its like that nationwide.

I think Billie Joe Armstrong does occasionally. Probably dozens more, but I can't think of any in particular. I don't think it's uncommon at all, and it's probably lost all meaning in most places. Like sagging pants.
