Pantera Unveil Vulgar Display Of Power-Themed Social Distancing Shirt

This Vulgar Display Of Power-themed T‑shirt from Pantera will get the message across to those struggling with the concept of social distancing.

Unfortunately, we’re still seeing people across the globe disregarding the need to practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Thankfully, though, Pantera seem to have come up with a solution to help get the message across.

The legendary Texan heavy metallers have just unveiled a spoof T‑shirt based on the classic artwork for their Vulgar Display Of Power album, in which a man is seen being punched right in the gob. In the band’s new, updated version, however, the victim is wearing a surgical mask, and the person doing the hitting has got a medical glove on.

Even more important are the words written underneath the image, taken from their hit single Walk: Be yourself, by yourself / Stay away from me.’

Pantera have announced that 40 per cent of the net proceeds from this ace tee will be going to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which helps those in the music community who have been affected by coronavirus.
