This vintage band tee pays homage to the Grateful Dead circa 1990s. It's truly stood the test of time and has a ton of life left. Features trippy tie-dye, 2 sided print, and iconic images of the dancing bears and skeletons in a yellow car- probably a Volkswagen Beetle or bug.
The lyrics here references "Truckin", a beloved track off Grateful Dead's 1970 record American Beauty. The US Library of Congress actually recognizes it as a national treasure. Ironically, it chronicles a hotel drug raid the band experienced during a show in New Orleans.
Aside from being an iconic rock act, the Grateful Dead are also key players in the 1960s counterculture movement. Their cultural impact and musical contributions make them undeniably one of the greatest psychedelic rock bands ever. Rolling Stone ranks the band at no.57 on their list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. They've also been awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, got inducted into the famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.
Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann make up the founding members of Grateful Dead. To this day, they continue to be celebrated by Deadheads and through epic collectibles and memorabilia like this vintage t-shirt.
