Note that Crass is given prominence over both the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
Only ONE is available, from the one and only Urban Outfitters. Only $375 plus shipping and handling.
let’s go pee on them.
Never mind the shitty graphics. You can only use a motorcycle jacket with the flip down lapels. The quilted shoulders are also a no no. It’s not really for riding a motorbike. As Joe Strummer put it in “This is England,” “I got my motorcycle jacket but I’m walking all the time.”
Punk’s dead, you’re next.

Back patch looks like a page out of my 7th grade notebook.
For some reason the red spades on the playing card really annoy me. Is that deliberate or is he retarded?

5.)a latter day Greg Kihn hair cut.
Hey, remember when Jen used to post stuff like this? Oh memories….
for sure someone ordered this, then saw everyone talking shit online and now is too embarrassed to wear it.
All the trendy Clash fans will buy it.
[...] On the one hand, there’s Avril Lavigne, the slightly rebellious singer whose production costs might as well be underwritten by Hot Topic. Her songs are focus grouped by Epic Records to appeal to that broad demographic of angsty high schoolers who feel rebellious, but not so rebellious that they’ll skip the school dance.
