Band merch is like an exclusive club: you had to be there to get it. Or did you? With the rise of retro tees, there’s no way of telling whether someone actually went to that Metallica gig or if they just found it on the rails of their local vintage spot. Or, for that matter, in the Urban Outfitters Music Shop.

From vinyl to posters, record players, and band merch, the Urban Outfitters Music Shop is one of the retailer’s biggest hidden gems. While it’s very easy to lose an hour scrolling through the various music avenues in the shop, we thought we’d streamline your experience by rounding up some of the best band T-shirts.

Band T-shirts are a complete wardrobe staple in spring and summer, but it’s essential that you pick the right one both in terms of artist and aesthetics. Below, we’ve put together 9 band T-shirts from the Urban Outfitters Music Shop that are failproof.
