The 50 Greatest Fashion Moments in Rap Video History

40. Everlast with the Boston Celtics jersey in "Jump Around."

Year: 1992

You know your fashion sense has made a definitive statement when people begin to associate you with it. Case in point: After Everlast sported the Celtics jersey in the video for "Jump Around," people thought he was from Boston (He was actually born in New York but moved to L.A.). In truth, Everlast donned the Bird jersey as a homage to Larry Legend and possibly as a nod to his Irish heritage. Smart move too, in the subsequent years House of Pain were able to brand themselves as Irish hooligans and tour with a variety of alt-rock groups. In the long run, those connections in the rock world might have helped Everlast when he picked up a guitar and went solo.
