This rad cut off tee features a graphic for the English punk rock band the Buzzcocks. The Buzzcocks were formed in 1976 by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto, although Devoto left the shortly after the band's founding. The group then signed with a record label in 1977. The Buzzcocks were considered extremely influential in the Manchester music scene along with other groups like the Fall and the Smiths. Their first single after signing, "Orgasm Addict" was an uncommonly bold song that was inspired by Shelley's bisexuality. The BBC refused to play the song, but the Buzzcocks continued to record music that examined human sexuality, just in a more ambiguous way.

Their first studio album, Another Music in a Different Kitchen, was released with members Shelley, Steve Diggle, Steve Garvey, and John Maher. This debut album was followed by two more in quick succession, all of which reached the UK Top Thirty. These albums were lauded for having strong rhythm sections paired with punk guitar rifts and catchy melodies. The Buzzcocks split in the early 80s and the members pursued personal projects until reuniting several times after 1989 for tours and studio albums. Pete Shelley died in 2018 but the band continued on with long time member Diggle and newer members Tony Barber and Danny Farrant.
