I forget his name. But the guy with the wet suit wears that every year. I don't blame him either. it's always pretty cold on Saturday morning of Holiwood night. At least pretty cold for being in unheated water in a water park. By the way, he's a very nice guy too.

Ministry, Greglag? I'm always amazed at what good tastes in music CoasterBuzzers have.

...

Of course, some people let their peers influence what they wear. I have always been a fan of "be yourself", but their have always been small rules that I have always followed, like boys shouldn't wear mascara to a wedding, unless they are in the band performing at the reception. :) lol

He is. And if I remember correctly, he has the wetsuit (or whatever it is properly called) at least partially because his skin is hypersensitive to sunlight. If you look at him more closely out of the water you might notice he tends to wear long-sleeve shirts.

Seems to me he's come up with an optimized solution even if it is a little unusual looking.

Which Ministry?

The 80's dance band, as heard early in their career such as "Every Day is Halloween" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIMfdlVGmqM) or "Work For Love" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-LRnsqO56I) or their more recent heavier sound (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wi4_E9oQzc&feature=related)?

It's only a "more recent" heavier sound if you consider 1988 recent. ;)

And for the record, I think both versions of Ministry kick ass, but still think it'd be cooler to wear an old school RevCo shirt to a Ministry show.

I prefer the "Halloween" "Work for Love" Ministry.

"Revenge" is my favorite synth-Ministry. "Burning Inside" my favorite industro-Ministry. Last few albums have been less than stellar. Psalm 69 was probably the last one I REALLY liked.

Still think it'd be hilarious if they broke out in to "Here We Go" or "Over The Shoulder" during a concert, but apparently Alain Jourgensen and I don't have the same sense of humor.

You're assuming Alain Jourgensen actually has a sense of humor! lol

Both Ministries are amazing, but I prefer their later, more intense sound. I have really liked everything that they have released, especially their more recent albums; my favorite, as of now, being the most recent, "The Last Sucker".

I consider Uncle Al one of the most creative musicians of our time.

I don't know if wearing a Revco shirt to a Ministry show would be against the so-called rules. :)

The last one I bought was either Houses of the Mole or Animositomina... whichever came later. Back in the day, though, pretty much everything Alain touched was good. RevCo, 1000 Homo DJ's, PTP, Lard...

I, too, am not sure about the concert shirt rules for side projects, though.

Yeah, it's kind of like wearing a band t-shirt to that band's concert. Don't be that guy. ;)

Should I feel really old because the first thing that comes to mind is that scene in PCU? Or should I feel really old because no one else mentioned it? And is a movie from 1994 old?

So many questions...

So.. I do belive there is one more exception to the band rule. You are allowed to wear Metallica shirt to a Metallica show. :)

But then, you have to embarrassed for going to a Metallica show in the first place. Poor starving Lars.

I believe it is also acceptable to wear a band's t-shirt to a cover band of said band.

I see plenty of DMB shirts at DMB concerts, so I'm going to assume that's acceptable, too.

kpjp's two posts ("Psalm 69 last really good album", "collected all the side projects back in the day") summarize my opinion of Ministry PERFECTLY.

Nothing wrong with being at a Metallica show, as long as we're talking up until about 1992 or so.

There is far too much Metallica on this page, Jeff could get sued for people using the name incorrectly and not paying Lars.

why does it matter what they wear and how does it effect you?

There were 2 guys in wet suits, and as I'm sure both are nice guys, I personally don't like seeing people baring everything in a tight wetsuit. That's just my opinion, and yes, it's judgemental. Will it stop me from going? No. And for those of you reading this that know what I'm talking about I feel the same way about Space Boobs (and that doesn't reflect on either guy in a wetsuit for the record). I just don't need to see that much of people.

I have exactly 3 park shirts. One was a BORG shirt simply because I like Star Trek, and then I have 2 Pavilion shirts that I got for nostalgic purposes. I never wear them to parks.

Full disclosure -- somewhere in my closet is a Metallica hockey jersey, circa 1997. And yes I paid full price at a concert for it. Hangs head in shame...

On the plus side, I think I wore it maybe two times, so it's in good shape in anyone wants it...

I'd like to add that there are some that amplify their "that guy" status by driving into the parking lot of the venue where the band is playing blasting said band on the car stereo. Even worse if they also blast it on the way out after the show.

We get it dude...you like the band.

That reminds me of the sound guy in a bar in Morgantown, WV, who played my band's CD while we were setting up our equipment before a performance. I thanked him for the exposure, and then politely asked him to play something else. He got "all pissy", and we sounded like crap becasue we didn't follow the number one band rule... Never piss off the sound guy. lol
