42. DIAMOND "Gold Front Misfits"
Inspired By: Misfits Crimson Ghost logo
There was a time when putting the Misfits logo on a tee seemed pretty cool, but it swiftly became the totem of hype culture veering dangerously out of control alongside apes and firearms. Remember when you laughed at pictures of your dad wearing bellbottoms? That all-over print hoodie is going to get you flamed like that too. But Nick Diamond and the crew giving the image tattooed on Henry Rollins's body some gold fronts just worked and epitomized the hype era perfectly. The Diamond Iron Maiden tribute was pretty solid too, and this — alongside aNYthing's Alfred E. Neuman meets Danzig's crew shirt — got this reference point right.
