Wise heads have wondered about ways to convert cred into food and shelter. So far, the alchemy has proven inconclusive, but if they ever get the formula down, this T-shirt is worth at least a six-pack and a single night's lodging in the back of a tour van. Hardcore pioneers Black Flag ended their career playing jazzed out sludge metal jams, a hybrid that excites only the most completist of record store clerks (a shrinking demographic itself). Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn is a documented Dead fan and as far as I know this is the only shirt out there cutting Sugar Magnolia lyrics with iconography from both bands. Get it from Jeremy Dean, the man behind The Hardcore Archaeologist, and someday trade it for beer.
