Reasons Why Wearing Shirts of Bands You Don't Know is Terrible and PointlessSo you see somebody wearing a Led Zeppelin shirt. You go up and ask "What's your favourite song by them?" How do they reply? "Oh, I don't know the band, I got this from my dad."
You can imagine the disappointment. I've added a few things on here but you can add the rest.
The Top Ten
There were two girls at my school that wore Pink Floyd shirts one day, and I asked them if they listen to the band and they replied no. People wearing shirts of bands they don’t listen to or even know about is one of my biggest pet peeves. - JoeBoi
My sister wants a rolling stone shirt and she's never heard of the band in her life.
Then I asked her there is no point of wearing that shirt without listening to their songs.
She replied with: "Everyone in my school wears it and it looks cool.
I have never been so repulsed by my sister in my life. - Not_A_Weeaboo
I like this list. It's pretty accurate. Example:
Kanye West was spotted wearing a Testament shirt (Testament is a thrash metal band). Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick said it best "Normally I'd be flattered and appreciative from 1 artist 2 another (those who follow me outside Testament know I'm very open musically & work with artists of many genres). If Kanye genuinely knows and likes Testament - and isn't just wearing our shirt as part of this current bizarre fad among trendy fashionistas and Hollywood types to wear old metal concert Ts - then that's great, more power to him and respect. However, I truly doubt that's the case (and would love to be proven wrong)." - Metal_Treasure
Really? That's a thing? Wearing shirts of something you're not a fan of? Not even familiar with?
I admit that often I love the design of certain shirts, but I would feel uncomfortable not knowing what exactly I'm wearing. - Martin_Canine
It's opinion based, so what's the point? - BigFatNoob
Yes, it surely does. - Metal_Treasure
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO DAT! OC don't STEEL I HATE ALL BANDS ANY WAY! 111-sherklover456
Seriously. I feel badly for people who actually love bands such as The Beatles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slayer, Kiss, Rush, etc. because so many people just wear these shirts as a fashion statement that it's expected from anybody wearing them. It's rare to find someone wearing a shirt with a universally known band on it and see them actually being a fan of the band.
This is the only thing on this list I agree with.
This list is excellent, good work! - darthvadern
If they're fake then why are they cheering yelling their name? - BigFatNoob
This is the definitive reason. This would lead to another reason mentioned on this list: You'll be ridiculed when you're proven fake.

That's why wearing it does not make any sense. - BorisRule
That's always funny. And disappointing at the same time. - Metal_Treasure
I have Metallica, Guns N Roses, Iron Maiden, Twenty One Pilots, and Judas Priest shirts. I listen to all of those bands on a regular basis and can name more than 10 songs by them.
So in my opinion, if you don't know or listen to the band, don't buy their shirts because what is the point of wearing a band shirt if you don't know or like any songs by the band? - RiverVibeZ
Start is from scratch, I am not wasting my 30 bucks on this cheap looking thing - BigFatNoob
I'm not sure I can find any Gentle Giant shirts unfortunately.
I got band shirts from bands I like, like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Sevendust, Dance Gavin Dance, Disturbed, RHCP, and STP, and I listen and like all of these bands. - NuMetalManiak
Yes it is - DarkBoi-X
Recently I saw a picture of a couple wearing Darkthrone T-shirts, captioned " Dolling up for Halloween"
... - Ananya
It doesn't have to be fashion - BigFatNoob
Godammit, this is the stupidest list ever. Who cares if someone wears a shirt about a band? - TwilightKitsune
It's just them, let them be - BigFatNoob
I can picture that... - Metal_Treasure
So does it mean they can't pull up the cost or something. And what do they do on their spare time? Playing video games or something? They have plenty of time make much more shirts but those ignorant slugs don't even care. - BigFatNoob
This is high quality? - TwilightKitsune
I wouldn’t really call these people “posers” (except for those who buy the shirts because they think the artist is cool despite not hearing a single song about them. That’s a different story). Maybe they just find these shirts comfortable? I’d buy a different shirt though if I were them. - Misfire
If you want to waste it on terrible music then that is one thing why it's a waste of money - BigFatNoob
Sometimes the material of the shirt can also be very bad.
Weird Al best music artist - iliekpiez
Agreed. But on the other hand, I'm pretty happy that Kanye West invested some money in thrash metal by buying a Testament shirt... ;-)

It's an opinion so I don't think the shirts are boring - BigFatNoob
Not all shirts are boring.
Nope - Userguy44
Funny but sad at the same time.
Yea so true
