Maybe it miraculously still fits from your very first concert, or it's been passed down by your aunt (along with a few insane stories), but you consider your fave band T-shirt as essential as any other wardrobe item.
Take our word, it can be a daunting task to track down the exact shirt from that one specific concert in 1989, but rest assured that even the most current options on the market can still make for a stellar go-to. While Mötley Crüe is no longer as buzzy as Nicki Minaj and we're more likely to hear Major Lazer on a Saturday night than David Bowie, we think these stars of song deserve the love all the same. From the rare and pricey original vintage T-shirts, to the easily accessible and just-as-rad newer versions, we hunted high and low for the coolest band tees to add into your rotation.
Jump ahead to pick out an oldie but goodie, or try out one of the new kids on the
block music scene that will harmoniously blend into your collection.
