The first music I started listening to that wasn't Weird Al was heavy metal. In 1991, as I was starting my freshman year of high school, desperate to make a (brief) attempt at fitting in to break the pattern of bullying I experienced over all my previous years of schooling, I decided I would start watching MTV. You know, like the cool kids. One morning, before the bus came, I turned the tv on and I heard that now iconic opening riff to Metalica's Enter Sandman as the video started (remember those?). I was hooked. Shortly after that I saw Megadeth's Sweatin' Bullets and there was no turning back. I appreciate all forms of music, but given a choice, I always choose metal.

While Metalica and Megadeth were my "mainstream" initial exposures to heavy metal, the roots of my metal fandom have an appropriately nerdy beginning: the soundtrack to 1985's animated Transformers the Movie. If you were a kid during that time frame and you were at all interested in the robots in disguise, you probably saw (and cried during) that movie, and very likely have a soft spot for the high energy, head banging soundtrack.

Coincidentally, Weird Al's Dare to be Stupid was on that soundtrack and was one of my favorite songs.

This thick cotton t-shirt makes for a go-to wardrobe staple! It's comfortable, soft, and its tubular construction means it's less fitted.

• Pre-shrunk

This shirt is super cool! Well made, quick shipping and a fun graphic. The communication with the seller was fantastic! The story behind the graphic is really cool too! I have bought two and can’t wait to give them to family- we have have a tailless cat and are into parkour so it was a perfect choice!
