This Kurt Cobain T-shirt may be the worst thing on eBay
We’d prefer you to come as you are.
I’m not the most stylish guy, but I know an unforgivable fashion faux pas when I see it—and clothes bearing the final depressive scribblings of grunge rock hero Kurt Cobain fit the bill.
The text of the Nirvana frontman’s infamous 1994 note had previously appeared on a tank top that Etsy pulled from its virtual shelves, Fader reports, but you can still pick up a unisex 3/4th sleeve T-shirt version on eBay for $25. The listing reveals that 16 of the cotton (and supposedly handmade) items have been sold, with 7 more available for purchase at the time of publication.
The Thailand-based retailer behind the garment, nuchyk, has a 99.2 percent positive feedback rating and sells all manner of probably copyright-infringing shirts featuring band logos, movie characters, and pop-culture personalities. He or she notes that the Cobain note shirt is “Not Official,” which, yeah, no kidding. Anyway, don’t buy this garbage.
