The rock band t-shirt have been with us for a very long time. Since the beggining of the rock era, since the 60s we are invaded, and we don’t mind!
It is well know that rock n’ roll changed a the mentality of human kind, also changed its looks. As people became frenetique, the rock bands became popular. They gathered groupies and fame. This was the beggining of the band t-shirts.
People started to wear them as they wore classic shirts before, and the band t-shirts became part of the very day garderobe of the rock lover. At first there were The Doors and The Beatles, there was Hendrix and The Animals.
T-shirts with the graphic designs of this bands were absolutely a blast. So to speak they became the new best thing in garment industry.
After this, there was the Hippie movement. Boy, did the Peace Sign t-shirts became famous! Let’s be honest, they still are even today!The Peace Sign became so popular that everybody wears it today. The sad thing is that people kinda forgot its real meaning, considering it at brand, more than something to fight for. Woodstock didn’t die, but it transformed itself.
In the mid 70s’ begun the punk era. Bands like Sex Pistols, Ramones, Billy Idol band and The Exploited found their way in giving their images to t-shirts designers. The punk bands were maybe the first ones to have logos.
The logos became rapidly very famous and have been printed on t-shirts.
T-shirt band templates are very popular nowadays too, because nowadays you can have whatever tshirt model you wish for. You love Metallica, Slayer, Nightwish, Sepultura? You can have it! There are lots of art designers that work for bands and make their logos and sell them as rock t shirts.
