For Those About To Karaoke, We Salute You.

It’s no secret to anyone at Old Glory that I heart karaoke like whoa. Judging from the social webs and the number of weekly karaoke nights hosted by bars across the country, you love it too. There’s even a badge on foursquare for three check-ins in one month at three locations tagged with the word ‘karaoke,’ aptly named “Don’t Stop Believing.”

I always wear one of our tees when I sing. It’s a great alternative to copious amounts of alcohol to reduce stage fright. It takes a lot of courage to pick up that mic, and karaoke nerves can make even great singers sound like an American Idol reject. For those that believe in that sort of thing, it’s also a way to channel the awesome of the band or artist. Epic bonus? No hangover!

The only question was, where to begin? There are hundreds of fun karaoke songs, and we have thousands of cool t shirts. This article from AskMen.com lists their top ten karaoke songs for guys, which provided a framework to narrow it down. From ten to one, here is their list, and my recommendations for tees to pair with them.
