Which Music Band T-Shirt Would You Buy?
Being an absolutely huge music fan of all genres, I love to shop online and find music band t-shirts for sale, either new or used. It doesn’t bother me if they are used as that’s how you get some of the best ones.
I don’t go to too many gigs these days as I’m a bit old for that. I do try and see some of the old school bands though that being said, when I find out they are touring. I’m going to list a few of my favourite t-shirts and you can tell me whether you agree or disagree on my choices. That’s the beauty of music though, everyone has their own tastes. Most of them are the lead singers from their respective bands but there’s also a few solo artists thrown in there too.
Thom Yorke - Raodiohead
One of my favourite bands from the 90’s has to be Radiohead. They aren’t for everyone but I’m a huge fan. The passion that you see from Yorke when he’s singing is second to none. He’s just a talented dude who can write some serious lyrics. ‘Creep’ has to be one of my favourite but there are so many great tunes in their discography such as ‘No Surprises’ & ‘Karma Police’.
Kurt Cobain - Nirvana
Another one of my favourite bands from the same kind of time, were Nirvana. Thanks mainly to the brilliance of their lead man, Kurt Cobain. ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ might not have been written by Cobain but his version of it on the MTV unplugged session was performed flawlessly and with immense passion.
David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust
Talking of ‘The Man Who Sold the World’, this year we had to mourn the passing of one of the greatest artists of our generation, David Bowie. I wasn’t personally so keen on his later work but it did definitely have musical merit, I just preferred his early work from the Ziggy Stardust Days. I don’t think he was the most amazing singer but he was a great songwriter and had huge stage presence. There’s just something very iconic about the Ziggy Stardust T-shirt which is why it’s one of my favourites.
Running along the same theme of greats that we’ve lost this year, I’ve just purchased a Prince T-shirt to add into my collection. If we are talking about pure musical genius, then there aren’t too many greater than Prince. He could play an obscene number of instruments, wrote lots of killer tunes and to watch him perform, was mind-blowing. It wasn’t really afterwards to be honest that I started reading up on some stuff about him and then I realized exactly just how ridiculously talented he was.
Axel Rose - Guns N’ Roses
My penultimate inclusion is Guns N’ Roses. Axel Rose may have turned into a fat and shrivelled version of his former self sue to years of alcohol and drug abuse but back in the day, he wrote and performed some quality tunes. ‘November Rain’ for me is a clear winner though.
Freddie Mercury - Queen
Yes, I don’t care if I look camp in it, he’s my favourite frontman of all-time so I’m happy to prance around in my Freddie Mercury t-shirt. Talking of ‘November Rain’, apparently that song was inspired a bit by Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody as Axel Rose wanted to make his own lengthy masterpiece. To be fair, although it cannot quite stand up to Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s a pretty solid effort and a great song in its own right. If I had to pick a favourite Queen/Freddie song then I would have to go more for the one that I preferred live. ‘Somebody to Love’ was amazing when Freddie performed it live and it really showed off his range. Some other favourites are ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ which is the ultimate feel-good song and ‘Save Me’ which was also great live.
Where Can You Find Some Inspiration
So there you have it, those are some of my favourite music band t-shirts from my collection. If you want to get inspired, I’d definitely suggest the Rockabilia Website. It’s going to be rock stuff but there’s a broad range of products from many different rock bands. You can get t-shirts, jackets, bags all kinds of stuff. Alternatively, just check out the local second-hand shops, sometimes you can find a steal.
Ok, that’s it from me. Time to head back to my room to chill on my bed and listen to some of these bands & artists I’ve been talking about. If you have just joined my blog and haven't yet read my previous posts, then maybe check out my 'Forming a Band' article.
