Merch is kind of wack.
I’m just as guilty when it comes to buying everything and I’ve wasted so much money on it.
Like it’s cool to have some shirts of some bands that you love, or a hoodie, or something.
Completely dick-riding a band is kind of dumb though.
Buy a bands records, play in a band, book a show, bring your friends.
Having the most t-shirts isn’t you supporting hardcore, moshing or singing to your favorite band is.
