I had the exact same thought. Must be some really large MO fans out there.

this is a dumb shirt/silly campaign ("defend pop punk"). obviously supporting The One Fund is great and important, but the shirt literally makes no sense. and that Impact font... at least put some creativity into it

Hey it might not be the best design ever, but at least they are going to make a donation, and that's what's important. Plus, I'm sure they didn't have a huge amount of time to get it out there. I like the idea, if I'm going to donate anyway, I might as well get a shirt.

im not being negative, but is the one fund boston going directly to family's medical bills? funeral expenses for the fatalities? it appears to be a exempt status org formed by a mayor and governor, i would hope the bills being paid are from hospitals and funeral homes rather than public service individuals first. not to say i dont think what they did is amazing, just cant imagine having to deal with hospital bills like some of these people are gonna get.

I agree with that, it is very thoughtful of them to make a shirt for that very important foundation and I do understand that they wanted to come up with a quick design, but I think the shirt design is silly and makes no sense. they didn't need to insert their really awful slogan onto a charity shirt

I've always wondered who or what Man Overboard is defending pop punk from?

I'm not trying to be a smart ass here. I truly would like an answer. Could someone explain to me what "Defend Pop Punk" really means?

In my opinion... its just support of the genre. I'm not sure exactly when, but I think these shirts starting becoming pretty prevalent right around the same time that New Found Glory took Man Overboard on the "Pop Punk's Not Dead" tour. I like Man Overboard and I like pop-punk, and that's why I have a few of the shirts. Maybe someone else knows more than me though! A friend of mine also does parody t-shirts that say "Defend Top Bunk", and instead of having the guns, its a bunk bed. I also have that shirt haha

Hopefully no one will bash me for posting a link to something else on this feed... But people are gonna support what they wanna support, so no big deal in my opinion.
