For as long as there's been metal, there have been gory graphics adorning T-shirts. It's an essential part of the lifestyle, almost part of a metal head's identity. Fans wear their favorite shirts like a badge of honor, representing their favorite bands, until they're threadbare and on the verge of disintegrating.
