Is wearing a band t-shirt an expression of your personal identity through music? Most people would say so. If you wear one of their shirts, you’re also proclaiming your support of the artist and the music.
Or do wear one just because it looks cool? Do you even have to know anything about the band to wear the shirt? Or is that ignorance enough to have you shunned?
The reason I ask is because this video is making the rounds.
“Metallic” writing? The woman doesn’t appear to recognize the Metallica logo. Should this disqualify her from wearing this shirt? Or should anyone be free to wear whatever they want?
Weigh in below. (For the record, James Hetfield doesn’t care. He believes that in America, everyone should be able to wear what they want.
