The "Purple Rain" t-shirt is becoming omnipresent

Years ago wearing a Prince t-shirt meant you were a fan.

Now shirts with "Purple Rain" are almost like AC/DC, Metallica, Guns N Roses and Nirvana t-shirts; just shirts you can buy at Target and maybe not even know a single song of theirs.

Now, if the estate can just come up with another Prince t-shirt for the masses they'll be off to the races.

I often see young people wearing Metallica, Nirvana, The Beatles or even Nas T-shirts and I always wonder if they really like the musicians on their T-shirts or if it´s just a trend to wear a band shirt.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"

I nominate the Parade-era, black and white Jeff Katz photo T-shirt - the one where he’s wearing a crop top and his arms are raised framing his face. If it weren’t so complicated to post a photo here i would post mine wink

You are a joke.
Also I've seen that shirt around quite a bit.

Yes, what can I say, I understood the question to be to come up with another fan fave T-shirt, even if it’s a ubiquitous one for some. Perhaps I misunderstood the question. I thought it would get more love than this, though

Grafitti Bridge is the other one I see pretty frequently as a fashion choice.

Gap, Old Navy, Macy's and Urban Outfitters all sold the Purple Rain shirts.

I've seen a girl with a parade era shirt a few days ago. Pretty sure it's not from a store around, so she might be a fan and ordered it from a website.

Is this a for-real picture of her in this shirt?

If so, it's interesting she'd wear Prince after he dissed her in L.A.

Free promotion smile. I'm guilty of this with other artists/ shows/ etc tho I try 2 freshen up on them b4 or after I buy shirt. I haven't seen any1 wearing a PR shirt but def have seen them 4 sale. Got a few myself even tho it isn't my all time fave. Gotta represent lol. Saw a cool For You era 1 (u know the pic where he's buck naked a couple times behind a guitar) a LONG time ago at the Hot Topic. Woulda got it if the 1 in my size didn't look like it would fit half of me loser smile.
For all time I am with you, you are with me.

People are such fakes today. One of the main reasons to go to the concert was to buy the T shirt. They make them for newborn babies now.
