Visit: My Band T-Shirt

I got a little bit obsessed with this site last week. It's music geekery in its finest form - fans sharing long and personal stories about what is essentially just some smelly fabric with a logo printed on. Band tee's have long been the ultimate badge of pride, resulting in the wearer either getting happily knowing looks from fellow fans or braving ridicule by proudly advertising what's in your headphones (well, before Topshop and the like got in the act and ruined everything with their mindless replicas).

With more stories added every day, it's tough to keep up with them all, but two favourites have to be the Hole 'Teenage Whore' shirt that led the wearer to a (thankfully positive) meeting with Ms Love herself, and Sarah Drinkwater's sad story of a Blur fan too young to make the trip to witness Britpop at its height.

You can contribute your own tales at mybandtshirt(at)gmail(dot)com.
