I don’t understand this whole merch obsession in the “hardcore” scene. Twenty grand for a crewneck, seventy-five dollar shirts, constant battling over how many of a given shirt were made. It’s a fucking shirt, asshole. Last time I checked, this is how celebrities spend their money, and celebrities aren’t fucking punk rock. Go to a show, pick up a shirt, support the band. Don’t support the hype-heads that pray on people’s temporary fanaticism with popular bands in the scene.
