It’s been a tough week in a hard year. Among all the horrors of Donny’s presidency, the terrorism in Las Vegas, and the devastation in Puerto Rico, Tom Petty passed away. He was one of America’s most loved musicians and songwriters whose music  touched millions of people. And so we are honoring him by sending you a shirt emblazoned with some of his most powerful lyrics. These words are much needed in these dark times.

“You can stand me up at the Gates of Hell, but I won’t back down”

If you’ve noticed, we like to give out free shirts when icons pass away. We did this first with Prince, and then Muhammad AliCarrie Fisher, Leonard Cohen and more. All folks gotta do is pay for shipping, handling and cost of the shirt. I make $0 profit on these. 

We do this because it’s awesome to literally put a shirt on someone’s back. But we also do it because we figure, if you get one shirt for free, maybe you’ll buy one of the other great things from the store as well (all orders over $40 get FREE shipping). Running a this site is expensive and every little bit helps. Regardless of whether or not folks end up buying other stuff though, it feels really good to be able to give something to people that they really love.

Just use the code “WONTBACKDOWN” when you check out. Ladies’ cut here and fellas’ cut here.

So enjoy this Tom Petty tribute shirt and wear it every time you need a need a little reminder that you can’t let the bastards grind you down.

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
