Reasons Why Wearing Shirts of Bands You Don't Know is Terrible and PointlessShadowheart So 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
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
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
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

Yes, it surely does. - Metal_Treasure
It's opinion based, so what's the point? - BigFatNoob
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.
Lots of people already know that you shouldn't wear a band shirt of a band you don't know. So the real fans probably won't talk to you, assuming you're fake. I know, annoying. But it's because of those posers! - Shadowheart
This is a good list. That's refreshing, all the comments are interesting and on point. Kudos to the lists author, of course... I must admit, every time I see a poser wearing a RHCP shirt, it does bother me a bit. It probably shouldn't, why should I care? They just like the symbol, or it's just popular with the folks they run with. Still, it's like I get a little offended, almost like I feel they didn't do any of the footwork to earn it. Does that sound elitist? Hell, I got friends that are way more into RHCP than I am, they must go nuts trying to contain themselves, because I see that T shirt everywhere! - Ned964
This is the only thing on this list I agree with.V 4 Comments
Why spend your money on a band shirt of a band you don't even know when you can spend the money on a band shirt of a band you know and like? - Shadowheart
I'm not sure I can find any Gentle Giant shirts unfortunately. - isaaonrtdmtr
Start is from scratch, I am not wasting my 30 bucks on this cheap looking thing - BigFatNoob
I have to agree with this one. - LeRoiDesSapinsV 4 Comments
I mean, look what happened to the Nirvana shirts. Lots of people are wearing them even when they can only name Smells like Teen Spirit. It's practically become a clothing brand and real Nirvana fans in Nirvana shirts are extremely rare. - Shadowheart
Godammit, this is the stupidest list ever. Who cares if someone wears a shirt about a band? - TwilightKitsune
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
Everyone on this page should know how embarrassing and frustrating it is when somebody's talking to you about something you don't even know about. So why lure yourself into that situation? - Shadowheart
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
It's called gibberish talk - BigFatNoobV 2 Comments
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
I've looked around the internet for an Iron Maiden t-shirt because I'm a fan of them. So many people wear Iron Maiden shirts around my school yet they can't even name The Trooper or who Eddie is. And guess what? They're all sold out! - Shadowheart
This is high quality? - TwilightKitsune
The whole point of a band shirt is to show your love for the band's awesome music. And if you don't listen to the band, you're just wasting your money on something that's fake! - Shadowheart
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.

You're going out wearing a Cannibal Corpse shirt. Somebody approaches you and asks what your favourite song is. You smile and say "Hammer Smashed Face! "
The stranger isn't impressed and asks "Any songs other than that? "
The stranger gives you an angry lecture and you're just standing there, blushing. - Shadowheart
Nice try, but that would never happen. Nobody listens to Cannibal Corpse. - The_Crimson_King
I can picture that... - Metal_Treasure
It's just them, let them be - BigFatNoob
Funny but sad at the same time.
This will be weird. - LeRoiDesSapins
How is that bad? - Shadowheart
You know how inverted pentagrams are associated with evil? Yeah, for example if you wear an inverted pentagram necklace in public and you're not a Satanist, some people might be offended, thinking you're evil or something. - Shadowheart
It's an opinion so I don't think the shirts are boring - BigFatNoob
Not all shirts are boring. - CaptainMowzker
Nope - Userguy44
