It seems like most people my age have long ago put away their band shirts and grown up. Not me. I wear a t-shirt everyday and 90% of them are music-related. It kinda makes me sad, because I love looking at t-shirts in the same way that I love looking at album art.

I'm with you. My wardrobe consists of jeans, tour shirts, and a couple of button-down shirts in case I have to go somewhere important.

I wear tour shirts everyday. People think it's "retro" but when they see the tour dates they know it's hardcore.

My pride and joy right now are my Saxon - Metalhead Tour & UFO - You Are Here tour shirts.

Well I'm only 21 but probably 95% of my clothes are music related t-shirts. I started back in Freshmen year of High School and was probably the only kid to wear Classic Rock t-shirts there but by my Senior year it seemed like a quarter of the kids at school had at least one Classic Rock shirt. I like to tell myself I started the trend.

I wear t-shirts whenever I am not at work. More than half of my shirts are rock shirts. My favorite is a Van Halen shirt with the logo from the first album. I bought it in either 94 or 95 at a record store and it still fits great.

Well BV, I only wish I could wear them! I have a collection of concert t-shirts from the 70's/80's but they are either too small, or totally yellowed with age. I do have some current U2 and Bruce shirts I wear on occasion, but I just don't look as cute in those tiny little tank tops with VAN HALEN or THE ROLLING STONES splashed across the front. Bummer.

I'm glad to see some of us still like band shirts! My favorite chnages a lot, but I'm always looking for shirts that aren't black. I have a pretty cool green Kimya Dawson shirt and a yellow (mustard almost) Mars Volta shirt that I like a lot.

I'm a t-shirt fiend! In fact, I got three new tees just yesterday. I'd say about 40% of mine are band shirts and the others are a mixed bag of superhero, Guinness, animals, pirate slogans, sports and...oh hell, I just have a ton of t-shirts, an easy hundred or so. I do love 'em so!
