Famous Guitarists Answer: What’s My Favorite Metal T-Shirt


[+] bio

UG News editor since early 2013. King Crimson fan. I handle the news around here.

The ole “Ask famous guitarist stuff” concept seems to be back in the trending domain, so here’s a third one in two days, this time around featuring notable metal guitarists (and a drummer or two) naming their favorite metal t-shirts ever.

You can check out some of the highlights below, make sure to watch the whole Metal Injection video in the embedded player.

Devin Townsend: “When I was in grade 6, my mom wouldn’t let me wear any band t-shirts to school, so I took a bunch of oil pastels and I made myself a massive Weird Al Yankovic t-shirt. It was just a big gray smock that I wrote ‘Weird Al Yankovic – Eat It’ on the back. Favorite shirt ever. Until, of course, my mom decided to be nice and bring my lunch to school. She came into the room and I was wearing a greasy shirt that said ‘Eat It.’ She was really upset.”

Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan): “I have this White Lion t-shirt I wear a lot. [Laughs] The sleeves are cut off and it looks super metal. Everyone thinks I’m wearing some super-metal shirt and then they look at it and they’re like, ‘Wait a minute – White Lion?! ‘When the Children Cry’?! Yeah, they were awesome; White Lion is badass.”

Bill Kelliher (Mastodon): “I found this old KISS t-shirt from the ’80s when KISS was unmasked. It’s just Gene Simmons slouched in this kind of like a throne. He’s just sitting there with big busty chicks. It’s like a cartoon drawing, it’s pretty fucking dope. I’m trying to lose this little weight I have so I can wear it again, it’s pretty tight.”

Ola Englund (The Haunted): “An old Bolt Thrower shirt that I had for ages. It’s the only shirt that survived throughout the years, I still wear it from time to time. But I’m very careful about it, I don’t want to break it or anything. Bolt Thrower is the first band that got me into metal, that’s why it means so much to me. And I was playing Warhammer roleplaying game – the name Bolt Thrower is from that game.”

Mark Holcomb (Periphery): “I have a couple of Emperor shirts that I never take off; it’s my favorite band. They’re hard to come by these days, I wear ’em all the time.”

Matt Halpern (Periphery, drummer): “On this tour, I got a CHON hoodie, which is really, really comfortable. I made a V out of it, so it’s my own custom V-neck hoodie. Probably my favorite right now.”

Tomas Haake (Meshuggah, drummer): “I had an Anal Cunt t-shirt, it was pretty ridiculous. All sorts of colors and all sorts of graphics. [Laughs]”

Where To Shop KathleenLights’ Wayfarer LA Shirt, So You Can Give Back & Look Great

Normally, Kathleen Fuentes, aka KathleenLights, gives out makeup recommendation. This time she’s switching things up with a sartorial pick. Fuentes showed off a t-shirt on Instagram and it turns out it’s for a good cause. If you’re wondering where to buy Fuentes’ Wayfarer shirt, there’s only one place to shop. You’ll be happy to know that the money goes to a good cause too.

This year seems to be the year of making your wardrobe count. There have already been shirts that benefit charities like Planned Parenthood and other non-profits. Fuentes’ goes towards The Wayfarer Foundation, which supports a variety of charitable organizations. According to the YouTuber’s Instagram post, this particular shirt will go towards throwing a Carnival Of Love for homeless people in the Los Angeles Area. The shirt reads, “Where there is love, nothing is too much trouble and there is always time” and is made by Justin Baldoni, who is a friend of Fuentes’.

You can snag one of these charitable tops at Omaze.com. They come in both black and white options and are available for $25 each. It doesn’t say exactly how much of the purchase goes towards the foundation, but it does say that every single one benefits the cause.

Just like the two color options, there’s also two different styles to choose from. You can choose from the classic t-shirt style, which Fuentes wears in her Instagram photo, or a v-neck. No matter which style you choose, you really can’t go wrong. There are also options for every single person in your life. There’s a unisex t-shirt, a his or hers v-neck options, and even children’s sizes. The only downside is that they only come in sizes XS to XL.

According to the website, Baldoni’s goal is to sell 600 shirts to support the cause. As of right now, they have sold 521 shirts and completely 87 percent of their goal. There’s no word on whether that means that they’ll also be sold out soon. Just to be safe, I’d head over and buy one while you still can.

Travis Kelce has a Sandlot shirt on Mike & Mike

Update: I initially said this was a pug t-shirt. That’s not a pug, that’s the beast from The Sandlot! You can get the shirt here.

Travis Kelce is out in Orlando for the 2017 Pro Bowl and the Kansas City Chiefs tight end joined Mike & Mike on ESPN this morning. I haven’t caught the segment yet but I did catch this tweet.

Is that … is that a shirt with pugs and bikinis on it?

Indeed, it is. The hat? It looks like a Pro Bowl hat with the NFL symbol – officially licensed.


Amkar shirt just a present – Eto’o

Antalyaspor striker Samuel Eto’o says the Amkar Perm shirt he was pictured holding was merely a gift from the club for his 36th birthday.

The veteran forward sparked rumours that he could be set to return to the Russian Premier League after he was picture holding a club jersey with the number 36 under his name.

Eto’o, was stood alongside Amkar coach Gadzhi Gadzhiyev, who he played under during his previous spell in Russia with Anzhi Makhachkala from 2011 to 2013, and executive director Denis Maslov.

Accompanying the picture was a caption that read: “Today [Thursday]. Belek, Turkey. More details later.”

However, former Barcelona, Inter and Chelsea star Eto’o, who has six goals in 15 Turkish Super Lig appearances this term, explained that the shirt was a present.

A post on Instagram read: “This is just a gift for my 36th birthday in March.”

The captain was accompanied with several crying face and balloon emojis.

Artist makes Obama-Emanuel T-shirt shack dream a reality

In a profile of former President Barack Obama, an anecdote about a dream of simplicity emerged. When feeling beset by all the decision-making the job demanded, he used to fantasize with then-top aide Rahm Emanuel about opening a Hawaii beach shack that sold only one thing, white T-shirts, in one size, medium. No stress, no decisions.

“White,” Emanuel, now Chicago’s mayor, would occasionally blurt out in the midst of a complex meeting, according to the July 2016 New York Times story. “Medium,” would come the reply from Obama.

That story stuck with writer and artist Emily Spivack. As Obama’s presidency came to an end, she set about paying him homage via his shirt shack fantasy. “When things got tough,” The New Yorker wrote in an open letter to Obama, “you didn’t leave it all behind to go sell T-shirts in Hawaii, and we’re better off for it.”

In collaboration with the Honolulu Museum of Art and others, Spivack this month opened Medium White Tee, a quasi beach shack art installation/pop-up shop in a Honolulu shopping center, next to the Bed, Bath and Beyond.

“There’s a sort of surreal quality to it,” Spivack said by phone from her home in, of course, Brooklyn. “Before, it was a gift shop or something.”

Visitors can sit and think about the 44th president in a stylized beach-and-boardwalk scene, or they can browse the merchandise: plain white tees hanging on a rack where every one of the plastic circular size indicators says “M.” Printed (only on the inner label) in a limited edition of 1,000, the shirts are $44, and proceeds go to food security and get-out-the-vote charities.


Midway through the shop’s run of Jan. 11 to Feb. 9, Spivack has sold about 300 shirts so far, she said, there and via www.mediumwhitetee.com. At the site, hit the “Select size” pull-down menu, and the only choice is “Medium”; hit “Select color” and you can choose “White.”

“I can’t imagine making this for any other president,” said Spivack. “I thought, this guy, he’s got a sense of humor, and he’ll get this. He’ll appreciate it.” 

Through Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s half sister, a Honolulu resident and a guest at the shirt shack’s opening, Spivack was able to get shirt No. 1 to him at Christmastime. She has set aside No. 2 for Emanuel and is trying to find a way to deliver it. 

“The Mayor appreciates Emily for thinking of him and wishes her small business success – even if she did steal his idea!,” press secretary Matthew McGrath said via e-mail. 

“She can send the shirt to City Hall, or feel free to swing by next time she’s in town. That shirt would look good on display in the Mayor’s conference room, or maybe even the Obama Library.”

Jennifer Grey Wore The Most Perfect T-Shirt To The Women’s March

In these dark times, we need to hold onto the little moments of joy. And the t-shirt that actress Jennifer Grey, arguably best known for her starring role in “Dirty Dancing,” wore to the LA Women’s March is nothing short of pure joy.

Anyone who has seen the movie “Dirty Dancing” knows the iconic line, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” Grey, who plays Baby in the 1987 film, put a twist on the line and made a shirt that read, “Nobody puts pussy in a corner.”

Apparently Lance Bass was a big fan, because he posted a photo of himself with Grey on Instagram, writing “#JenniferGrey wins for best shirt!!” 

We wholeheartedly agree.

Where Can You Get Wholesale T-Shirts?


Whenever the shirt is worn, you have gained an advertising advantage, and to make such campaigns reasonable and practical, you want to get a custom T-shirt wholesaler willing to provide you a good piece on bulk shirts.

While there are several companies that provide bulk promoting product for trade shows, you'll still want to contemplate joining an online globe trade portal for the purpose of finding a much better price for what you require. Trading specifically with countries where textiles and materials are a serious export could provide you with an advantage in negotiation, with companies willing to contend with whoever is curious about shopping for. It's vital, if you propose to utilize promotional t-shirts on a daily basis – either as giveaways or to sell as a part of your disapproval or fund raising – to determine a powerful provide chain as you're employed with overseas manufacturers.

Some businesses adapt to new technologies better than others. The local pizza store most likely does things the same way they did half a century ago, since their business is based on hand based products, it'll possibly ne'er change. Individuals may well be flying around with jet packs within the future, however the local shop can still be twirling and moving pizza pie dough within the air. Then there are companies that embrace new technologies as they can.

Printing wholesale T-shirts has continuously been a reasonably straightforward method. In fact, the foremost standard methodology of printing, screen printing, has been around for nearly 2 thousand years. however new pc programs have had a profound impact on the trade. Customers will currently produce their own styles directly on the company's web site.

There is no need to actually visit a store and try to clarify what you want to a trained professional. Frankly, it is a waste of your time, each yours and his. New programs provide users the flexibility to enter text and styles onto the cheap blank t-shirts or garment of their choice. They'll even upload on their own designs, if they do not get a guide that strikes their fancy.

Most custom printers will deliver virtually any size order of American apparel wholesale within two weeks. Like most on-line businesses, customers receive discounts after they place bulk orders. This is specifically true of custom printers who depend on screen printing. Look wisely as you identify the best distributor of wholesale t-shirts for your business. Connecting with vendors via a world trade forum can be excellent way to start.

There’s now a Raise The Cat T-shirt for 76ers fans, and it’s a fund-raiser for PhillyPaws

At this point, most 76ers fans know about the Raise The Cat thing after wins. You might have done it yourself in some form or another by now, whether or not you have Twitter. 

Marc Zumoff is in on it. Nerlens Noel is in on it. The team’s social media crew is in on it now. Heck, even a few otherwise cynical Inquirer staff members have let their guard down.

Now the originator of the trend has taken it to a whole new level.

Dennis Grove, a.k.a. @GipperGrove on Twitter, has launched the “official” Raise The Cat T-shirt. And even better, it’s a charity fund-raiser for the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society. All proceeds from sales go to the renowned local pet adoption non-profit.

Grove drew up a caricature of Ben Simmons striking the pose in the Instagram photo that inspired the meme, though with a few funny differences: Simmons’ shirt has Joel Embiid’s face instead of a dog’s, and the hat says “RAISE THE CAT” instead of “SAVAGE.” Of course, Simmons’ cat is there too, perched on Simmons’ shoulder.

The shirts cost just $20 each, though they’re on sale through Friday for $14. You can also get the design printed on a range of other merchandise.

Check it all out here.
