Top 5 Ways People Remember Their Favorite Bands

By Missy Ray

Almost all of us have idolized, or in most probability, still idolizing a rock band. Often it is not just any rock band, but one who has made a great and lasting contribution to music and to our culture as a whole. These bands can be Nirvana, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Megadeth, Metallica and more. And everyone will surely agree that these bands deserve to be labeled as legends.

And when we are a fanatic of any band, it is usually evident whenever people just take one look at us. They can certainly tell through the shirt that we wear or the bag that we carry. And it’s not just with the kind of music we have stored in our mp3 players. Because consciously or not, we tend to exhibit our respect to these rock bands and music legends in almost anything that we own or through the things that we do.

There are many ways on how most people showcase their admiration for a rock band. Usually it is through popular merchandise or merch as these are also called. You can have a Nirvana Merch or a Led Zeppelin Merch or for a more contemporary band, even a Parkway Drive Merch. The following is a mini list of the top souvenirs people buy to commemorate their favorite band.

1. By wearing band t-shirts.

T-shirts have always been one of the primary mediums used to commemorate rock bands. Because just think about it. When you go to a rock concert, you do not go there wearing a suit. Most often you would be wearing a t-shirt and usually it has that band’s name or faces printed on it. It’s your instant way of telling and showing your fellow band fanatics that you are just like them and that the band is also your favorite. Another reason why band t-shirts are popular is because they are cheap therefore anybody can have his or her own t-shirt of that band. Even the whole process of making them is inexpensive.

2. Hoodies

Of course, it depends on the kind of band you are following. Nevertheless hoodies have gained ground as a favorite of a lot of fans. Just like the band t-shirts, the name or logo or the band members themselves are often printed on the front of the hoodie. Some people just find the hoodie much cooler because of the hood and the large frontal pockets. Those are utility features you don’t find in a t-shirt.

3. CD collection

Of course because they are rock bands to begin with, any fanatic would certainly have his or her own collection of music of the band. From “The Very Best Of…” to every album released, we have a copy of their music that will surely last forever.

4. Buttons and stickers.

When you have such a band souvenir, you can easily customize anything that you have and turn it into a memorabilia itself. For example, just by sticking a button on your bag you can instantly make that bag look like a merchandise or souvenir of your favorite rock band.

5. Band posters

Now this one’s a classic. You can make your own room look like a shrine for your band by simply putting up a poster or two on your walls. And the bigger the poster, the better it usually is.

Your band memorabilia need not be expensive. Just any medium will do as long as you can freely express how much your favorite band means to you.
