Youth Of Today were a straight edge hardcore band from the late 1980s, the most important of their generation. YOT codified the aesthetic of what straight edge hardcore was and would continue to be, even to the present day. Their 1986 release Break Down The Walls, originally released by Wishingwell Records and later reissued by the band's own Revelation Records, was as genre defying as it was genre defining: it was steeped in US hardcore lore in a time when hardcore was going in more metallic directions. The record is a classic. And to top it all off, the record layout and aesthetic of that era became the blueprint for what a straight edge hardcore tee would look like. Hard live pic, printing on every surface, X'd up fist, good lyrics and thoughtful phrases. This shirt is perhaps the most iconic Youth Of Today shirt ever created, and this early 2000s reprint, with discoloration on the collar and pits, is a faithful recreation of it.
