    Default Your favourite Band T-Shirt

    Just been taking stock of my Van Halen T-Shirts situation and realised that I am severley lacking these days. I have been after an OU812 t-shirt on ebay but they seem quite rare. I love the OU812 album cover.

    My favourite remains my original 5150 Tour T-Shirt, the same as the one Ted wears in Bill and Ted. I acquired it off ebay, its more yellow than white (lol) but I love it loads.

    I tend to make my T-shirts sleeveless alot of the time only to regret it deeply when the summer months have passed and I have nothing to wear.

    My other favourite T has to be my Duran Duran Rio t-shirt, which is basically the cover art for the Rio album. I have it sleeveless and its just the most comfortable tshirt and I personally think it looks pretty kick ass. I have just ordered a Van Halen 3 tour T from ebay so looking forward to that one!

    Anyway, whats your favourite band t-shirt and why?

    I have four favorites: The 1984 tour shirt, the white F.U.C.K. tour shirt, 2004 tour shirt that I sleep in almost every night, and of course my EVH shirt .

    Somethin about sleepin in a 2004 tour shirt that seems hot.

    All my favorite shirts from back in the day are long gone. I remember one Rush shirt in perticular that was the shit.
    I was one of those kids in school that had all kinds of concert shirts with the black sleaves and wore a flannel shirt over top.
    I spent at least $150 bucks on shirts this tour. I love em.
    Gots a ton of guitar shirts too.

    Lol...um, I don't wear my 1984 or FUCK shirts anymore. I've got them sealed and put away in my closet, along with my Def Leppard and AC/DC shirts. I wear my EVH shirt over a long sleeved T-shirt or thermal shirt in the winter.

    I do have a Black In Black shirt I still wear from time to time though. I found it in a vintage store a few years ago.

    Oh, and I sleep in my OU812 shirt too sometimes. It's held up really well all these years. I love that shirt!

    Thanks to a more drunk than Ed ever was mother, all of my tour T's have sadly dissapeared. I still think the 1984 with the 'exterminator dude' on the back was the coolest though.

    RUSH - Grace Under Presure Tour

    The black shirt with the glow in the dark p/g

    I worked in a One Hour Photo Lab back then, and actually accidentally fogged a customers roll of film with that shirt on in the darkroom.

    Wow...lately my favorites are my Black Crowes t-shirts; but through the years my favs have been:
    VH 1984 jersey & my VH II t-shirt (which was a parking lot bootleg t-shirt but a very cool one)
    Rush Moving Pictures & Signals,
    an original 1977 Tour Zeppelin t-shirt (a hand-me-down from my older brother)
    1981 Rolling Stones t-shirt with the Amercian flag tounge, 1990 Urban Jungle tour
    1977 Pink Floyd Animals tour t-shirt (another hand me down)
    Ozzy Diary of A Madman tour t-shirt...saw him with Randy...the back of the shirt had multiple blood soaked stab wounds and a knife in the back....used to freak out my parents and teachers

    Even though it doesn't fit me anymore, my U2 ZOO-TV "Every artist is a cannibal..." T-shirt would be my favourite
    Also like my KISS Farewell Tour shirt (which is about the only one that still fits!), and other than the fact that it features Vinnie Vincent, my Creatures of the Night shirt is pretty cool, too.

    Never bought a lot of t-shirts - unfortunately didn't see the need (or maybe I just didn't have the money) to get one when I saw Van Halen back in '81. I did get ones for AC/DC (Flick Of The Switch tour), Aerosmith (Back In The Saddle), Foreigner (Agent Provocateur), Rolling Stones (Steel Wheels) and The Eagles (Hell Freezes Over)

    Got this one in 1985. Metallica (with the late/great Cliff Burton) at the Oakland Coliseum, on the same bill as Scorpions, Ratt, Y&T, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Don't have the shirt anymore but it said it all for me.

    Probably my 1991 Skid Row Slave To The Grind Shirt. Not overly comfortable to wear, but it has the monkey sitting on a throne above piles of bones with Skid Row in giant letters from shoulder to shoulder. On the back it says Slave To The Grind across the shoulders with 1991 going vertically down the spine.
    I love all my Van Halen shirts, favorite one prolly being my stripped 5150 t-shirt. I also ordered the bday bash 2005 Sammy shirt for $14.95 off the vhstore, that's a really nice one. Also love my Alice Cooper Raise Your Fist and Yell 1987 shirt.

    Mine is a Keith Richards and the Expensive Winos t-shirt, it has the skull logo in gold. Bought it about a year ago but it has already faded quite a bit and made it even comfortable to wear.

    I think the fading is absolutely essential, particularly on a black t-shirt. Anybody have any tips for fading a black T a bit quicker? I will be getting my VH3 Tour T soon and its going to be far too new looking, other than just wash it daily anyone any ideas?
