    Same here, although I usually try to pick up shirts from my favourite albums, but I have a few tour shirts from shows that I didn't make it to. I don't wear anything from a band I'm not really fond of, no matter how they're viewed in the metal community.

    I say "oppose", let's instead say "provide a darker, more real alternative to", or something.

    how about "darker, more intense viewpoint on". it doesn't have to be an alternative to the common view, but often is.

    I like "darker, more intense viewpoint on" myself.

    Nice typo. :tickled:

    People who have millions of band t-shirts are gay. I'd rather spend my money on actual albums than shirts.

    you could easily replace the "metal circles" and "metal fans" with the word "Juggalos"
    they consider themselves "family", it's just a creepy substitute for the relationships that should have been your biological siblings

    I have a respectable quantity of metal shirts, which were almost totallly acquired spanning almost 3 decades (I've just realized this) from a) the band, b) at gigs or c) as bundles with the album. I only have a few shirts that I've got because I just wanted to have them due my likeness of the album they show. The oldest shirts I have are: Testament - The New Order (bought in 90' or 91' with the album, worn AS FUCK) and 2 Cannibal Corpse shirts: EBTL (94' most probably, also worn as fuck) and The Bleeding (late 94' or early '95, it's almost light grey now with some small holes here and there, totally worn as hell).

    Metal as a community seems more like a joke than anything to me. Metal is nerdy, sure, but for me, forums are more than enough to share that nerdism from time to time.
