This awesome t-shirt celebrates the legendary rock band The Doors, and the front features a portrait of the band's iconic frontman Jim Morrison, while the back lists the title of one of their songs "Light My Fire". The Doors were only active from 1965 to 1973, but during that time the group became the first American band to accumulate eight consecutive gold records. They managed to sell over 4 million records by 1972, and had a major influence over the youth counterculture of the 1960s.
The band broke up a few years after Morrison's death in 1971, but their legacy has endured for many decades. A string of compilation albums and previously unreleased recordings helped to maintain an ongoing interest in the band.
This shirt is from the 90s, when a biographical film starring Val Kilmer as Morrison was also released. While the surviving members of The Doors disapproved of the movie's portrayal of events, it did kickstart a younger generation's interest in the band. The copyright on this tee is from 1994, which was just one year after The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 1998, their song "Light My Fire" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
