Ray Wylie Hubbard "Screw You, We're From Texas"

Zorlac is a skateboard company from Dallas in the early 1980's who came up with the phrase "Fuck You, We're From Texas". They printed it on the backs of their t-shirts in giant block letters in defiance to the ubiquity of the skateboard industry in California... It's a pretty cool twist to see how Ray Wylie Hubbard in 2010 is influenced by an eighties punk skateboard company who was most likely influenced by the early seventies defiance of country punk artists like Ray Wylie Hubbard.

Thanks to Sara for the link.
