The Best and Worst Merch of 2009
The Best and Worst Merch of 2009

Remember when 72-point block print was the coolest thing ever? Or when all those band tee designs gravitated to the side of the shirt, down near our hips. Remember when everyone wore those Glassjaw hoodies or when Glamour Kills swooped up the teenage kingdom? Thankfully, The Get Up Kids have fielded some of the blame.

Ah, those cool kids buying all those cool things. Let's explore 2009, shall we? What makes us look super cool and which makes us look like super douchebags? What makes us look like both?

"they seem pointless and moronic to me. Are we really too lazy to remove our arms from underneath the blanket? You might as well just staple the remote to your hand too."

I love you for that. Been a Snuggie hater from the get-go.

The fat dinosaurs shirt is about Fat Mike making fun of Underoath not believing in dinosaurs. There was a news story about it awhile back. Stupid looking shirt but funny story imo.

I really liked reading this. Also I found the NFG shirt very disturbing.

Thank you. It isn't all that hard to understand. The fat dinosaur has a resemblance to Fat Mike.

That makes a lot more sense!

I still can't imagine why someone not close to the band would want to wear it, though.

To go a little more into it, it was a joke about the year they dropped off warped tour, 3 warpeds ago or so? Fat Mike had been insulting their religion for a while as a joke, and one day said he doesn't believe in god he believes in dinosaurs, and was saying Underoath doesn't believe in Dinosaurs because they believe in god. Then the band had to drop off a few dates to take care of stuff and everyone thought it was cause fat mike and a huge "We hate fat mike" thing in their fandom happened.


Also: I agree that those shirts are bad, but that NFG one is ugly too.

I really want that ADTR shirt because you can never go wrong with Pinky and the Brain. The NFG shirt kinda scares me, and what the fuck were you thinking, FYS? :\
