Er, what? Really? I wonder where this leaves me.
Fruit of the Loom–yes, the underwear people–carried out a study that says that Ramones t-shirts are only worn by people who never actually listened to the band. I quote:
“Our study found that, rather than being an expression of fandom of The Ramones, the t-shirt functioned as a sort of anti-conformist uniform for angsty teens, which is ironic,” confirmed Fruit of the Loom spokesperson Anne Hopkins. “It’s sort of the equivalent of a Che Guevara t-shirt for the apolitical.”
So it’s just a fashion/social/political statement? How many people were included in this survey? And did they talk to anyone over 25?
Oh, wait. This is a satirical news site like The Onion. Ah.
