It's not just kids, some people wear band tees without knowing who they are. I saw a girl wearing a Misfits crop top ( not sure why it's being sold as a crop, but w/e) and I let her know that I think they're an awesome band. She had no idea what I was talking about. In any case, I came off looking really stupid.
Even though I'm a teenager myself I find myself think "those damn teens" all the time. Especially with music they piss me off. I see many people my age wearing Metallica, Misfits, Black Sabbath, Slayer, and Pink Floyd shirts... band of which I'm a huge fan of. Then I go to find out that they don't even know them or say "Enter Sandman is a cool song" or "Iron Man is a good song". Most people want the image of it to make themselves look more interesting... for some reason. Okay enough ranting.
Yeah, sorry for my generation OP. Nowadays, it's really difficult to find somebody who's not a poser. Most of the 'music' people around here are just obnoxious pricks. I wear band tees like Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Pink Floyd, Guns N' Roses..... but I actually do listen to the band whose shirt I'm wearing. And if anyone tried to strike up a music conversation, (no matter how old) I'd be thrilled.
Guys who gives a shit what you listen to, listen to what you like and move on with your life. Not every single teenager out there is a poser or blind to good music so quit with the stereotyping, there's ignorant people from every age group and generalizing one just makes you ignorant yourself.
I seriously doubt they knew the bands anyway. Like all the stoners with the Bob Marley shirts.
59- 59- I hope you know that is not an actual quote from Che Guevara. If you do some research on him you'll find he was an ardent supporter of black rights, something he frequently wrote about in his personal diary and he was hailed by both Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela for his efforts.
Sorry guys, but the Pink Floyd "fad",(yes, I said "fad"), is the one that gets on my nerves the most. Go out and ask a 16-year-old kid, who's wearing a Pink Floyd shirt, their favorite song by Pink Floyd and they'll say "Uuuh... Dark side of the moon?". Ugh! It just irks my butt!
I'm recently 16, and Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands. My favorite songs are "Wish You Were Here" and "Another Brick in the Wall, part 2". So...yeah. Not all teenagers are (I hate using this word, but I can't think of another term for them) poseurs or complete idiots when it comes to good music.
Those punks just wear them because it looks cool. They were probably blasting Justin Bieber in the car on the way over.
The fact that you use the phrase "in my youth" means A) You're too old to be striking up a conversation with those damned whippersnappers, B) You're old enough not to give a fuck what those little punks think or say, and C) You're old enough to curse them out for being rude and obnoxious and not respecting their elders.
I personally am tired of all the damn kids going " ew pedo" "what a creeper" " *gasp* stalker" after meeting someone once or twice. In reality the chance of anyone being a stalker or creeper is 1/ one million. And rarely does anyone under 30 classify as a pedophile.
