Awards season officially culminates with the Grammys this weekend, and there’s no better way to celebrate the winners (and acknowledge the losers) than with one of our memorable Rolling Stone quotes T-shirts.
Inspired by our five-star rating system for album releases and movies, the two T-shirts showcase two very different ratings and opinions.
Rolling Stone has been running music reviews since the very first issue in 1967, and on more than a few occasions, our music editors have panned an album so badly, the review becomes legendary. Our cheeky “Weak and Unimaginative” tee pays homage to all those artists whose music didn’t quite line up with history.
The 100% cotton, lightweight T-shirt is available in a relaxed fit, with unisex styling in sizes small to 2XL. True story: this was an actual quote that one of our music editors used in a review about a band that shall remain unnamed for now (though you can easily comb through our archives to figure it out).
Prefer something a little more positive? Our “Instant Classic” T-shirt celebrates the blockbuster hits, weird sounds and personal favorites that have been been worthy of that phrase over the decades. The T-shirt features the quote in large font, alongside a perfect five-star review (last bestowed upon Adele’s latest album, 30, back in November 2021).
The two Rolling Stone quote tees are part of our latest Rolling Stone merch drop, which also includes sweatshirts, hoodies, hats and tees inspired by our biggest celebrity covers and iconic logo. The T-shirts shown here are available for $40 in sizes small to 2XL. Each item is produced on demand and takes 3-5 business days to produce prior to shipment.
