From the Pretty in Punk pattern description:
A variation on our “punk’s not dead” hat, this is the ultimate tribute to punk-rock music and the country that spawned many of our favorite bands, including the Sex Pistols. Guaranteed to garner you stares, smiles, and more attention than you can handle!
