today before turning in, i realized that the clothes i was wearing made me look like a billboard for rock n' metal: i was wearing a mastodon hoodie over a zeppelin shirt, evh shoes, metallica wallet, and (unknown to the public) sex pistols boxers. it kinda made me feel like a *****. does anybody else do this?

Well, when school was in, everyday I would where a different band T-shirt. I don't think there's anything wrong with it really.
#3
Definitely not. I only buy the most bad ass looking band shirts, and I wear them rarely. I feel like a tool in them, no offense to you. Just seems like all the kids have a Pink Floyd or Suicide Silence shirt on these days.

Jeez, I usually just wear a band tee. Everything else I wear is leftover from my skateboarding days

I wear band shirts because I give a far bigger shit about music than I do about clothes, and it makes the whole process of buying them easier.

Yeah, actually right now I'm wearing a Pour Habit tee, NOFX jacket and Sex Pistols shoes.
I think it's just easier to buy If you like a band, then you're more likely to want their merch. Well, I find it easier to buy a band tshirt than normal clothes

Only if it's same cliché merch every other kid picks up at Hot Topic or Wal-Mart.

And don't over do it. If you have your Beherit or Reversal of Man tshirt, you don't need a Profanatica hoodie and 50 other pieces of merch.

If you're not whoring for the band, you'd probably just be advertising for a company that exclusively makes clothes (Hollister, Quicksilver, Vans, etc.) so if you actually like the band it's nice to support them.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#18
Well.. Technically you're paying them for the right to advertise them. So you're not really whoring yourself. You're just paying to be a walking billboard. Which is way worse. Chump.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
#19
Not much my style anymore, but I have no problem wearing a band shirt now and then.
#20
no, I don't ***** myself to the bands that are on my clothes, namely because I actually like the bands that are on the shirts I wear. If you ***** yourself to a band, I think that it would be when one wears merch from a band yet have no clue who they are or what songs they play

No. I generally prefer clothes that don't show prominent brand marks. Though I do own a few band shirts that I bust out on occasion.

I personally find that by wearing so many band clothes, you're trying too hard outwardly to identify yourself with a certain part of your personality, which is that you like music/certain bands. Not that there's anything wrong with wearing band clothes, but as like a stylistic theme I think it's a bit much.

I have a fair few band shirts and I think it's alright to wear them. Just wearing socks and such from bands is too far

I only wear band T-shirts of local underground bands that I buy at their concerts and fests. Or some underrated death/black metal bands but those are harder to get. And slayer....

I like Band T-shirts, I find that the designs such as Iron Maiden and early Metallica album covers are quite cool looking and would look good on a T-shirt and/or other piece of merchandise anyway.

Also if you go out and meet people and you're wearing merchandise of a band they like then it is a good conversation starter.

However it is important not to over-do it. Having Iron Maiden shoes with a Megadeth shirt, a Pantera braclet and etc; just looks overdone.

I own quite a few band Tees, but only shirts. I think band shorts are kinda odd anyway, and the hoodies usually overpriced.

This. Everyone I know has a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon shirt. If I went up to them and asked them about any other album than that one, they probably wouldn't know who what I'm talking about.

These are the same kids that don't know who The Beatles or Led Zeppelin are, but if you ask them about the latest flavor-of-the-week band they would know right away what you're talking about.
