This awesome double sided shirt was made for the beloved heavy metal band Metallica, and it celebrates their 1988 album ...And Justice for All. The front of the tee features the same portrait of Lady Justice that was created by Stephen Gorman for the cover of the album. Meanwhile the back has the band members James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted, and Lars Ulrich, beside the words "hammer of justice crushes you".

This was bassist, Jason Newsted's first studio album with the band. As he was hired to replace the late Cliff Burton, who had died in a devastating accident during the band's Master of Puppets Tour in 1986. There was some controversy involving the mixing of the album, and Newsted felt that Hetfield and Ulrich purposefully made sure that his bass lines were nearly inaudible, but despite these accusations, the record was a smash hit.

Fans' love for the album was so strong that it forced the Grammy Awards to introduce a new category. There was so much backlash when ...And Justice For All lost the award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance to Jethro Tull, that metal was given its own separate award the following year.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. This shirt is faded, and there's some wear along the collar and a thin spot on the front, see pics.
