This awesome vintage tee was made in the 90s to celebrate the iconic punk band the Ramones and it pays tribute to one of their most popular songs "Beat on the Brat". The shirt even showcases the lyrics of the song on the back. The song first appeared on the band's self-titled debut album, which was released in 1976, Although the group had been performing the track live to audiences for several years prior to its recording.

The chorus to the song is simple and catchy, repeating the words "Beat on the brat with a baseball bat". It was written by Joey Ramone, who was expressing his anger and annoyance towards the spoiled upper-middle class children he sometimes encountered in his hometown of Queens in New York City. The singer recalls seeing one particular child one day at a playground in Forest Hills, who was screaming and carrying on with absolutely no discipline, and the lyrics to the song simply came to him.

The Ramones are considered one of the earliest and most influential figures in punk rock. Many people cite the group as the first true punk rock band. They received little recognition during the early part of their career and their debut album only managed to reach the number 111 spot on the Billboard 200. They emerged on the New York punk scene, making multiple appearances at the famous Manhattan clubs Max's Kansas City and CBGB's, and over the years they have gained praise and recognition for helping to shape rock and roll in 1970s. In 2003, the band's debut album was ranked at No. 33 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
