SERIOUSLY, GUYS: 10 BUCKS TO THE FIRST 'RETRO-THRASH' KID WITH THE BALLS TO ROCK THE 'MIDRIFF SHIRT AND SHORT SHORTS' LOOK.


Came across this picture of Morbid Saint while researching the post below and it got me thinking...

Everyone's seen these "retro-thrash" kids with the denim vests covered in patches and the tight jeans and the Suicidal flip-visor caps and the puffy white tennies, right? Well, I'm willing to offer TEN DOLLARS CASH to the first kid who sends in a picture of him or herself (or a friend) rocking the infamous "belly shirt and tennis shorts" look at a metal show. To ensure validity, you'll need to be holding a copy of a fairly recent newspaper or something. As always, direct your entries to illogicalcontraption.yahoo.com. Let's do this.

A hint: May I recommend these authentic 80's Ocean Pacific surf shorts (shown below - only $24.99 on eBay from Vipster Vintage)?

Wow. Morbid Saint kicked ass, but that shirt and those pants...*shudder*
Reminds me of when I saw a member of Obituary wearing a white belly shirt. I just don't get the appeal.

I stopped listening to testament after I saw a pic of them in full pads on rollerblades.
