    Official CREEM Lester Bangs 'Freedom or Death' T-Shirt

    $30.00 $45.00

      "Freedom or Death," a slogan many mistake as originating with Lester Bangs, was actually not a Bangs quotation at all, but a philosophy he adopted for both his lifestyle and his writing. After being fired from Rolling Stone for "disrespecting" musicians and refusing to be a payola propagandist, Lester moved up and out, bopping on over to CREEM, where he tested and teased the limits of honest and free expression.

      A personal creed he professed on poly-cotton blend, for Lester, "Freedom or Death" was at the core of good rock 'n' roll, and the tee served as a fittingly in-your-face reminder. 

      The Lester Bangs Capsule is part of the CREEM Archive Collection, our PREMIUM merch line featuring classic logos, artwork, and other deep cuts ripped straight from the pages of America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine. Printed on soft, vintage-style, tees these elevated items will turn yer wardrobe up to 11.

      Bangs immortal missive

      I love this shirt. LB’s words are timeless and are especially applicable today with all the governmental power grabs taking place.
