In 2001 the Dutch graphic design group Experimental Jetset (EJ) produced a Beatles T-shirt. The idea was deceptively simple: replace the faces of the most recognisable band in the world with just their names. After all, everyone knows which band they belong to. The shirt sold surprisingly well. EJ would design two more, listing the Rolling Stones and Ramones. The real success lies not in the number of T-shirts sold, but what they spawned. People began sending them T-shirts in the same format: a plain shirt set in Helvetica type. An ampersand at the end of each line gave the impression the list was a piece of concrete poetry, as much as a pop-cultural tribute. Seventeen years later, the designers still receive band T-shirts with names they've never heard of.
