Meet the Residents

We idolize the Residents and always wanted to have a tee with the image featured on the cover of their debut album "Meet the Residents". But since we couldn't find one we decided to make it ourselves.

When this album was released in 1974 it attracted the ire of Beatles' labels EMI and Capitol due to the cover art being a parody of the Fab Four's second album "Meet the Beatles". Being threatened to sue, the Residents changed the cover in the 1977 reissue.

We hope we don't get sued by Apple Corps and are confident that the Residents won't, either, since "There's a fine line between stealing and influence and the Residents never had any problem crossing that line" (Homer Flynn).
