Funky and vibrant graphics, like the one featured on this tee, really started to gain mainstream popularity in the 70s. 1959 was the year that plastisol ink was invented, and this new ink changed the t-shirt industry as it allowed for graphics to be screen printed onto clothing relatively quickly and easily. Graphic artists took inspiration from 60s counterculture, rock and roll, and underground comix to create unique and awesome t-shirt designs, and from there graphic tees flourished into a wardrobe staple for many people.

In 1984, the Fleshtones line up consisted of Peter Zaremba, Keith Streng, Jan Marek Pakulski, Bill Milhizer, and Gordon Spaeth. The band was never commercially successful but they had a huge cult following. American Beat ’84 was the name of their tour but also one of their singles that came out in 1982. However, they did rerecord the song in 1984 for the movie Bachelor Party, starring Tom Hanks. The Fleshtones were from Queens and they routinely played at the Pyramid Club in the East Village. They were also instrumental in founding Wigstock, a drag queen festival that’s become a staple in the East Village neighborhood.
