About This Shirt
Escaping from Port Arthur, Texas, Janis Joplin exploded onto the rock and roll and psychedelic music scene like a hurricane made of the blues. At Big Brother and the Holding Company's breakthrough performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, Mama Cass could be seen mouthing, "Wow! That's really heavy!" while watching Janis sing Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain." Working with Big Brother and the Holding Company, the Full Tilt Boogie Band, the Kozmic Blues Band, and eventually as a solo artist, Janis Joplin shook the walls of the rock and roll scene dominated by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead, The Doors, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys, and Elvis Presley by proving that women know how to rock. Classic albums like "Pearl" and "Cheap Thrills" showed the rock community that there was a change on the horizon, that women were able to shake an audience to its knees. Without Janis Joplin the rock and roll world would never have gotten to be rocked by Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Pat Benetar, Chrissie Hynde, Debbie Harry, Melissa Ethridge, Gwen Stefani, PJ Harvey, Lita Ford, or the rocking power of Bette Midler in "The Rose." Show your love for rock history and the trailblazing woman who kicked the door down for rocking women, Janis Joplin, with this exclusive transfer on your favorite tee shirt, tank top, or hooded sweatshirt and get down with classic Janis Joplin hits such as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Mercedes-Benz," "Try," and "Piece of My Heart."
