This is not a punk shirt

Posted by Jason Diamond

Once upon a time it was a punk shirt.  Kurt Cobain made one with a marker and wore it on Saturday Night Live in 1992.  Now it’s considered retro and being sold at Forever 21.

The only good that can come out of this shirt is that it has given me reason to post this video of Flipper doing “Sex Bomb” in the 80s.

Update: Also to note from the Forever 21 Wikipedia: “Forever 21 has received attention in the media[5] for printing “John 3:16” on the bottom of their trademark yellow bags. A Spokeswoman from Forever 21’s LA headquarters said the Biblical quote is a “demonstration of the owners’ Christian faith.”

Because nothing says Christian faith like Flipper!

  3. Moby was in this band “for like a day” he once told me with a weird semmi sarcastic inflection in his voice.
