KOЯN T-Shirts – Not banned at Metropolis Vintage

Pioneers of the Nu-Metal sound, KOЯN have their fair share of supporters and detractors.  Just ask Michigan teenager Eric VanHoven, who, in 1998, was suspended for wearing a KOЯN shirt deemed too unsafe for school.  Assistant Principal and non-music critic Gretchen Plewes described the band as “indecent, vulgar, obscene and intends to be insulting”, but the band donated hundreds of t-shirts and gave them away for free outside the school doors.  While our KOЯN shirts aren’t free, we’ve got a huge selection here at Metropolis Vintage and certainly don’t object to you wearing one around our store!
