that people seem to get all pissy when people wear band shirts of bands that they only know one or two songs of? I've never really understood that you had to know a certain amount of songs or own a certain amount of albums to be considered a "true fan". any thoughts?

i'd say you enjoy 5-6 songs minimum to buy the merchandise

Why though? What if someone heard "stairway to heaven" and "rock and roll" on the radio, and enjoyed both of them. What makes them less entitled to wear a led zeppelin shirt then someone who has all their albums?

because those people generally only wear band shirts in order to fit in or look cool, in other words they are posers, and noone likes posers, except other posers.

You can trip these hardcore wannabes up. If they come up to you and give you flak just ask them what the name of the first album by that band is. Do your research of course. If they guess correctly ask them about the one before that. They will then say there wasn't one before that. You then say of course there was you retard. Go look it up. Walk away.....

I don't think it matters. Honestly, I have more pressing fashion matters to attend to: Bikers...I love motorcycles and will soon own my own, but will I wear next to nothing so everyone can see the dark side of my body? No. Please, be reasonable.

What the hell am I talking about?

I find it pretty annoying. Some people wear it for a fashion statement instead of actual support for the band, effectively making them a fraud and a poseur. However, I guess any support is good support but it still pisses me off REAL bad.

i think u could know 2-3 songs but still want to hear more to buy merch. if u know 2-3 songs but not really interested in the band and are only buying the merch cuz people think its cool u shouldn't and be slapped for being stupid

i know its stupid but i feel that way too..and yea that whole thing with ac/dc shirts in walmart does piss me off hah..but it appeals to everyone in such a wide range of ppl like kids first getting into rock (age 12iish?) usually start with ac/dc and zep as i'm sure most evryone here did and so did everyone else thats up to about 50 yrs old too..hell of a market there..I woudln't buy a shirt of a band that i didn't know at least 1/2 to 3/4 of the catologue tho. I feel like i'd be full of myself then cause if someones like oh hey i love that band you know this song blah blah..and i'm like no? then how dumb do you feel that you're wearing the shirt?

i get so frustrated when i see a kid in a AC/DC shirt and i ask em what they're favorite album is, and all they can come up with is 'uhm, either that one with Highway to Hell on it, or Powerstruck.'

Kohls, actually. I don't listen to them much anymore though.

How is that being a poser? If someone goes into hollister and buys a shirt that says "hollister" on it and wears it even if they don't work there, does that make them a poser? No. its the same basic idea.

or Powerstruck

No, we aren't talking about supporting a clothing company by purchasing their clothes.

We are talking about supporting a band that makes music through purchasing clothes with their name on it. It really is different. No one is going to say, "Do you know Hollister's first album?" or "Did you go to their show yesterday, or are you wearing that just to look cool?" Of course everyone is wearing Hollister because it looks good (debatable).

It makes them a poser because they are pretending to like music they aren't really into to gain acceptance.

the hollister thing is different because obviously if they are wearing a hillister shirt, they like hollister, since it's a clothing brand and they are wearing clothing of that brand.

Okay, but how does that make a person a poser?

EDIT:

Well if they're just diong it to gain acceptance then i see what you mean. if they just think it looks cool then that's different imo.

All I know is I dont go around wearing shirts of bands I have no interest in. When a person buys a Led Zeppelin shirt there stating that they like Led Zeppelin. Why wear a Led Zeppelin shirt if you have no interest in them? Most of the hate comes from the fact that its becoming a trend, and most extreme fans of bands dont want a bunch of teeny boppers wearing their favorite bands shirt. thats just how the music affects people. Think of your favorite band, and think about the next time you goto the mall or w.e you see 30 other people wearing a shirt that says your bands name. Its just something the more extreme fans disgust.

In my opinion, you should know enough about the band and members of the band to hold a conversation about it.

The only band shirts I have are bought from gigs, and I only do it to support the artist. I think I might have one shirt that I bought not at a gig. I do respect the people who buy the shirts at the concerts more, because that means they are trying their best to support the group.
#26
I just hate it when some poser is wearing a cool band shirt and you go and start talking about the said band, and they look at you like a deer caught in the headlight and go "I don't like *insert said band here*, I just liked the shirt."

Well, if a band has shirts in stores like walmart or kohls, chances are they don't need a whole lot of fan support anymore.
