Flipper shirt

When Nirvana performed on Saturday Night Live in 1992, Kurt Cobain wore a Flipper shirt that he made with a magic marker. As Vol. 1 Brooklyn points out, a version of that same shirt now retails at Forever 21 for $16.90. How does shit like this even happen? Someone better be getting paid for this.

  1. This is kind of depressing to see, but it may have something to do with a licensing of the logo or design. There’s this Etsy store (http://www.etsy.com/shop/LostRecords) that sells some really great looking band t-shirts of Big Black, Shellac, Minutemen, Pere Ubu, This Heat – basically the awesomest of bands who you can never find shirts of — and they sell a similar Flipper one. Either the screen prints are loosely licensed, or everyone is ripping off the punks.
