Ramones t-shirt by Amplified
Vintage collection, launched in February 2011
Re-listen: 'Baby I love you!' by the US punk rock band Ramones
On 14 February 2011, Fashionoffice re-listened the song 'Baby I love you!' by the US band Ramones (1974 - 1996, pioneers of punk-rock), while searching for more information about the musicians of the new t-shirt collections by Amplified (rock fashion label that belongs to Universal Music).
For the Vintage collection, Amplified's designers have re-interpreted the signature graphical appearances of musicians like Madonna, Pink Floyd, Gorrilaz, Linkin Park, to name a few, in bright colored prints that remember pop-art and are inspired by the 80/90s.

Wikipedia contributes an own paragraph to the history about the 'Visual Imagery' of the Ramones such as their outfits consisting of leather biker-jackets, tight jeans, t-shirts, sneakers and hair with long fringe, but also about the creation of the logo by Arturo Vega, who "produced the band's t-shirts, their main source of income..." during the band's beginning. wiki/Ramones
