I don’t think they’re worn ironically. They’re worn to be trendy bc TikTok and Instagram “stars” were paid to wear them over the past year.

If you ask most of them why they’re wearing them, they would say “it looks cool and I saw Kendall Jenner wear it on Instagram.”

Of course a few are actually fans.

I’ve collected and worn Iron Maiden t-shirts since the 80s. I’ve noticed in the last few years I get a lot of compliments from youngsters when I go out wearing one. Always strikes me as odd.

If you see a kid out there wearing a Motorhead shirt, give them a high five and hand them a beer.

Bands (and their record producer PR handlers) make logos and graphic designs that appeal to and sell to their young fans.

Fast forward 30 years from when those logos were first produced, and you see them all over the shelves at Target and other big box retailers who are selling familiar things to the middle aged consumers who now have significantly more purchasing power than they had in their teens.

It just so happens that those middle aged people buy things for their own teens, who are not objectionable to wearing a cool looking logo that strangely appeals to them despite not being fully aware of that logo’s origin or the BrAND it represents.

It’s the perfect storm of t-shirt mass appeal, hardly anything to skyscream about.

It’s not ironic. Most people just don’t put much thought into the clothes they were

That reminds me! I need to check in on the current market value for all my vintage band and concert t-shirts! I bet they're still going up in value. I have a couple Pearl Jam shirts that bring really good money.

Back in the 80s you could go to a concert for someone like Mötley Crüe, Poison, Def Leppard, etc. for about $20 a ticket. Most of the time the concert would be general admission. Once you got there you could buy a tour t-shirt for $10-$15.

I love metal. It just pisses me off that a bunch of kids who never listened to a Slayer/Metallica/GNR song are wearing their shirts.

Watch Robert Downey Jr in any of the recent Marvel movies, and his clothing is retro 80s, including Black Sabbath etc

So the metal bands are part of retro clothing now.

$20 in 1985 is about $50 adjusted for inflation, which is about what an upper deck ticket would cost at a large arena today.

Oddly enough, you can see those exact same bands you listed on Aug 16 at Lucas Oil Stadium for $25.
