Sunday Bloody Sunday

In honor of Taking Back Sunday's bassist Matt Rubano's recent headwound, the band has issued one of the coolest pieces of merch. The backstory: At a recent show in London, singer Adam Lazzara was swinging his mic around during the first song of the set, and clocked Rubano straight to the skull. According to Matt, he'd never bled that much before in his life, but still managed to stumble out during the second song of the set and continue playing - head wrapped in gauze. At the end of the nite, Taking Back Sunday finally ushered their wounded soldier to the emergency room.

This may be worth the $15 + shipping costs. Consider the fact that t-shirt merch is one of the most expensive ways to spend your money (unless you're not underage and there is something other than Budweiser being served). Fortunately, Matt's head is well and healed after stitches and many cups of coffee.
