Study reveals band’s most popular t-shirt
If you’re a rock or metal fan, the chances of you owning at least one band t-shirt are pretty high. A new study by RushOrderTees has determined the most popular band worn on T-shirts.
RushOrderTees surveyed 1,017 people who own band t-shirts to gather the data. They broke down the results by genre, artist, and even listed unspoken rules for portraying musicians on your clothes.
The most popular band to wear on a t-shirt was AC/DC — 21.4% of attendees said they owned at least one of their t-shirts. Aerosmith, Queen, Pink Floyd and Green Day were the other Top 5 contenders respectively. Nirvana and Metallica fell just short of the Top 10 at 13.2% each – both were beaten by Ariana Grande.
Other findings from the study note that heavy metal fans own the most band t-shirts with a whopping 17 on average. However, punk fans spent the most on their shirt collection, averaging $597.
If you’ve ever worn a band shirt and been approached by someone trying to test your knowledge of music, you’ll love this part – the “Band T-Shirt Rules (Unspoken)”. The most common rule was that people had to buy a band shirt before a gig to wear during the show. Then only authentic group shirts count as “real”.
About 29% of contestants felt that people shouldn’t wear a shirt with the logo of an artist they don’t actually listen to, and 20.6% felt that the shirt shouldn’t be worn at all. of a band at their own concert. Oh – and you should know at least 10 songs by the artist before wearing his shirt.
Finally, 13.6% of contestants said they had no rules about wearing band shirts.
