    That bugs me to no end! On the same note it also bugs me when people assume that since I'm in my 20's I only listen to pop, hip-hop, and rap, and have no interest in classic rock. Nothing could be further from the truth! I'm a rocker through and through. I was raised on classic rock.

    Don't worry, we can tell by the look in your eye.
    How is obama working out for you?

    My 34 year old daughter was recently appalled to find out her (new) husband had no idea who Grace Slick was.

    Seriously, though. I know it's only rock-n-roll, but I like it.

    Unless you are a roadie or under 18, why would you wear one even if you did listen to the music?

    The guys who listen to those bands have a right to wear those shirts, because they bought the albums (or at least downloaded the songs) and are much more authentic than the poseurs who are only wearing the shirts because they want to be associated with musical acts that they don't know anything about because they, uh, mmmm... Aw, man, I can't even pretend to care about something this stupid, even sarcastically.

    Exactly. It's not like a kid who does listen to the band is any less of a poseur. Does the obese kid in the Wolverine T-shirt have more of a right to wear it than the guy who doesn't own a box of mylar-bagged back issues, but does own deodorant and has actually touched a woman?

    I'm a classic rock fan and have been to many a concert but I haven't worn a rock t-shirt in quite some time. The closest I have come is wearing a Jimmy Buffett t-shirt but only because it said "The weather is here, wish you were beautiful".

    I remember during the 80's when there were people who listened to the Scorpions and wore the t-shirts.

    I suspect that you really meant to post at Conservative Undershirt, not Conservative Underground. :D
