spandex


Yes. Either tight leather pants or colorful spandex is a must.

Also, no facial hair if you have any.

Here's an outfit i put together based on the lead guitarist of twisted sister:



easy enough, cut up some jeans, cut the sleeves off a denim jacket and then wear some random crap on your arms. Wig and sunglasses for bonus points.

EDIT: all that stuff came from op shops as well, except my Jackson and Sunglasses, cost me about $20

nah, all the stuff i got from the op shop cost that much

i got told in english that putting stuff inside commas like that can be used to add extra information and then resume the sentence. like using brackets...

our spirit weeks are quite dumb. we always have a hillbilly day, in which most people wear the same clothes as normal

Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield, Jello Biafra (dead Kennedys), Henry Rollins-get a bunch of steaks and duct tape them to your neck.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again

5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Pssh, Henry Rollin's neck is impossible to emulate. To emulate the awesomeness in Henry Rollin's finger would be pretty much impossible.
