AC/DC sell Jets-inspired jerseys at MetLife Stadium concert (pic)
AC/DC hit the stage at MetLife Stadium for a concert Wednesday, and fans in attendance who also hold allegiances to the New York Jets were afforded to the opportunity to pay tribute to both the seminal rock band and their favorite NFL team … so long as they paid dearly for it.
The unique rock concert memorabilia is modeled after the Jets’ green jersey and features the band’s logo on the front with “A. Young” (for the usual school boy uni-adorned guitarist Angus Young) as the “player” name on the back.
The jersey number is 15, although odds are it wasn’t inspired by Tim Tebow’s stint with the team. The right sleeve boasts a tour patch featuring AC/DC’s legendary concert cannon.

The sports-inspired apparel was created exclusively for specific cities for the band’s “2015 Rock or Bust” tour, including NFL-themed apparel for the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions, among others. NHL-themed sweaters for the Montreal Canadiens and other teams also are available, as are MLB-inspired jerseys for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs and many others.
All the jerseys are available on the band’s official website and will set back fans $150. In other words — while paraphrasing a line from one of AC/DC’s best songs — For those about to rock one of these $150 jerseys … we salute you. Well, actually, whoever is turning an enormous profit on said jerseys will salute you, at the very least.
