introducing ... METAL MONDAY! (with Megadeth.)

Welcome to Metal Monday: a weekly series (starting today) where I'll be unearthing concert t-shirts from the past out of my closet to share with the universe. Some t-shirts have fascinating stories behind them ... and some do not. (Are ... you ... ready?)
Megadeth. This t-shirt is like an old friend, circa 1993. I wore it during high school, when I listened to Symphony of Destruction, Sweating Bullets and Foreclosure of a Dream every day. When I was a sophomore, I wore this shirt to church camp while cleaning up a park in Des Moines after the floods of '93 ... and was told that it was inappropriate for church camp.

(Happy Metal Monday! More next week!)

  3. fabulous!!!!!!! love the church camp memory:) I remember wearing NIN t-shirt to my grandmas house back in the day and it said something like 'now I am nothing' on the front. My poor grandma took it literally and sat me down about the importance of self-esteem:)

    I love Metal Monday!!!!!!!

  9. You are awesome. I made my mom cry once when I came home with a "Creatures" (formerly Siouxsie and the Banshees) tee. I tried to remind her that at least it wasn't black, my color of choice at the time. Didn't help. I'm pretty sure she's over it now, but the nose ring was the next tear-jerker.

  10. I saw Megadeath sometime in 99 or 2000. It was at Mancow's Lazer Luau. It was kinda lame.

  15. Hey Jen! I first "met" you on SIS and came visiting your blog now and then, but now since Sis is closing, you might see me here more often... my bloglist seems endless so I'm very picky about the people I add but YOU are one of them!
