Screen printed and graphic tees helped spearhead the beginning of the self-expression revolution started in the 60s. Wearing a protest, advertisement or band shirt helped activists to prominently display their opinions and was a convenient way to support their causes. In modern day, those facts still apply, but we’ve seen musicians all over the world collaborate with graphic designers to create eye-catching shirts in the interest of self-promotion. Band tees are just as important as ever, and we’ve picked 15 shirt designs we really dig.
If you like these tees as much as we do, we suggest you check out the bands behind the designs. The bands displayed here are: Bombadil, The National, Band of Horses, Wye Oak, Phosphorescent, St Vincent, Phantogram, Dr. Dog, Lost in the Trees, Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes, Ben Sollee, Chelsea Wolfe, City and Colour, The Wild Feathers and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.
