Every Shirt CXXIX: Ramming Speed

shirt: Ramming Speed
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2008
provenance: band

Bought directly off Jonah at the kickoff show for the band's winter '08 "we're sick of working normal jobs" tour, this is a large-people-sized variant of a shirt that's fairly common around Boston, not only because Ramming Speed is cool and people like supporting them, but also because the back bears the immortal slogan TOP OF THE DUDE CHAIN, and having that on your back is a clear and ironclad indicator that not only are you a critical dude, but that you will point and laugh at anyone who actually uses "critical dude" in their normal vocabulary without a hint of irony. It remains to be seen if the band will reissue this design now that they're on Candlelight, or if they'll come out with something equally nifty and original, but regardless, this is a pretty cool shirt here.
