This sweet vintage band tee is for the seminal California punk band Descendents, and the shirt commemorates the release of their 1987 album, All. The was the group's fourth studio album, and it marked the end of an era for the band. It was the first album to feature Karl Alvarez on bass and Stephen Egerton on guitar, but it was also the group's final release before the departure of lead singer, Milo Aukerman, who left the band to pursue a postgraduate degree in microbiology.

The band was sad to see him go, particularly because they were still eager to perform and record music together, which is why they formed the band All, which consisted of the group's remaining members: Alvarez, Egerton, and Bill Stevenson, along with a new lead vocalist, Dave Smalley. Scott Reynold and Chad Price would also serve as lead singers for All during the band's tenure between 1988 and 1995, and throughout that time, they would release seven studio albums together.

The release of All, Auckerman's departure, and the formation of this new group were all commemorated via a concert tour dubbed the FinALL Tour. Stevenson had apparently wanted to change the name of the band for several years, to title it after his concept of "All" which was somewhat based off the death of his  close friend, Pat McCuistion, who had died while fishing during a storm. He had died with around 15,000 pounds of fish on board, and Stevenson was quoted saying, "you could say he died in heated pursuit of All".

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. This shirt is distressed with small holes throughout, see pics.
