This is more than a punk band


Explanation:
eiigy pocr off is on a t-shirt. That is correct. Also on the t-shirt are some dots. If you pull the lower dots to the upper dots, eiigy pocr off becomes "F_ _ K OFF". I have one of those t-shirts. I bought it during the 1980's. I know this is an old question but, could not resist answering it and setting it straight.

Explanation:
EIIGY POCR OFF was started in late August 1996 and is the brainchild of editor Jay Arrgh and creative consultant Thaddeus Maximus. EPO was established as a means to enlighten the public to the evils of modern society (i.e.: capitalism, greed, the "me first" philosophy, etc.) with the intent of doing away with traditional power structures. It is our hope that through humor and biting sarcasm as well as through general research that we can expose the people who try to corrupt us as truly evil persons.

disagree  EiigyPocrOff: EIIGY POCR OFF started long before 1996. I know this because I purchased a tshirt during the early 1980's that had EIIGY POCR OFF® on it. Also, I found a newspaper with a ladies bowling team, EIIGY POCR OFF®. This was 1984.
