We live for music at THS!

If you’ve visited the shop, then you know we usually have the big screen playing music videos, music docs, or Soul Train reruns. But sometimes we just want to kickback on the Togo couches and watch a movie. You already know we have awesome taste in hoodies, but our superlative style reaches far beyond our choices in fashion and music! If you happen to drop in on one of our impromptu film screenings, feel free to grab a beer and a seat on the living tower and see why hits are the only things we pick!

For this weeks’ 10 Bands-10 Hoodies post, we’re listening to some classic movie scores! All of these awesome bands scored big with simultaneous box office and chart-topping hits.

Here are our picks from Billboard’s “Top 50 Movie Songs Of All Time, and the HOODIES they remind us of!

10 Awesome Albums - 10 Badass Hoodies: British Invasion

We’re all about music at The Hoodie Shop! This week we’re back on that classic rock jam; specifically the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famers that hailed from across the pond. We’re talking about the British rock invasion of the early 1960’s!

These bands were innovative and different from the sounds in America at the time. Which is probably why these bands had staying power. 50 years later some of these incomparable bands are still rocking on tour. Every one of the groups on this list has at least a member in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That fact alone tells us all we need to know about these vanguards. We thinks that’s pretty badass. 

Here’s our definitive picks from music.about.com’s Top 25 British Invasion Bands of the 1960’s, and the hoodies they remind us of:

We’re all about music at The Hoodie Shop! This week has been an ode to the most undervalued, badass, genres of music- We’re talking about Rockabilly.

The album art featuring shocking innuendoes with instruments engulfed in flames, and the vehement disobedience and rebellion tormented the likes parents and authority figures in the 1950’s and early 60’s. Throw in nicknames like “The Killer”, “HellKat”, “and Rebel Mama” with a leather jacket and tight skirt, and you get a level of troublemaking teenage angst that was unheard of at the time.

These are the fellas your parents warned you about, but everyone loves a bad boy (or girl)! 

Here are our favorites from Oldies.com’s Most Played Rockabilly Songs, and the hoodies that make us want to grease our hair and start a street gang.
