Cradle Of Filth released their "Jesus Is A Cunt" shirt in 1993 and the world has been talking about it ever since. In a recent interview with the Stoke The Fire podcast, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth explained that the shirt was simply a vehicle to piss off as many people as they possibly could. And hey, it clearly worked.

"The thing about that shirt was that it was, actually, an anarchic statement, if anything, when we did it," said Filth. "It was just like, 'Who could you poke with a stick more than anybody else, and it have an overarching effect?'."

So would Filth wear the shirt out in public a full 30 years after its release? The answer is "no." Because obviously it's one thing to do something that's funny when you're a kid, but it's another thing to wear a shirt like that as a full grown adult in a public place.

"As nasty as it is, I must admit, I would be uncomfortable wearing it now. My girlfriend, we went for a meal, and she inadvertently put it on because it was chilly outside. She had a cut down version of it, but there was enough of it. And I looked at her in horror like, 'Oh my god, what are you doing?' Like, I mean, I don't want lots of spit in my food, you know? It's an awkward scenario, but I'm pleased we did [the shirt], it was good fun."
