The official Chris Cornell Infinity Tee has been released. You can click here to purchase it for $24.99.

Chris Cornell’s official website describes it as: “This black, 100% cotton T-shirt features artwork by Matt Cameron and Josh Graham. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will benefit The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.”

“Soon after Chris passed away, I was inspired to make a care package for the last Soundgarden crew from the fateful April/May tour of 2017. With the help of Josh Graham and Chris Siglin, we created shirts, stickers and hoodies for our crew. Since March 2018, I have been wearing the ‘Chris stage shirt’ I designed and fans have been loving it on social media. Josh Graham and I created a new version of my ‘Chris stage shirt’ that I hope our fans will like as much as I do. Vicky Cornell and I have decided to make the shirt available to the public, with all proceeds going to our various charities. Wear it with pride. Thank you and Loudest of Love to you all.” – Matt Cameron

Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky recently reached out to Pearl Jam members Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron on Twitter to thank them for wearing Soundgarden and Chris Cornell shirts at a recent concert to pay tribute to the iconic singer.

She tweeted, “Thank you @PearlJam for remembering and honoring @chriscornell #familymatters #loudlove
Pearl Jam Emotionally Honor Chris Cornell Onstage For First Time https://www.alternativenation.net/pearl-jam-emotionally-honor-chris-cornell-onstage-for-first-time/ … via @AlternativeNation.net.”

Vicky also recently tweeted, “We are experiencing the greatest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime – more people than ever are fleeing their homes as a result of conflict and crisis. Today, on #WorldRefugeeDay, I’m joining @theIRC in standing w/ the world’s most vulnerable. Join us. http://www.rescue.org/worldrefugeeday.”

While all of Pearl Jam’s members have honored Chris Cornell in their own way, members of the band including Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron collectively wore Soundgarden and Chris Cornell t-shirts onstage at the band’s second show at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.

The Chris Cornell Starbucks tribute graphic first seen on a Matt Cameron t-shirt was also shown on screen at one point as the lights were dimmed down. Vicky Cornell has previously hinted at that t-shirt being available for official sale sometime soon.

Eddie Vedder wore a Nudedragons shirt, honoring Soundgarden’s first April 2010 reunion show in Seattle. McCready wore an Ultramega OK shirt, honoring Soundgarden’s classic debut album.

Eddie Vedder also had a lighthearted moment with Mike McCready, saying that when Mike was very young he told his mother “I want to be a guitar player when I grow up.” Mike’s mom replied, “Now Mike you are going to have to choose…” Ed says, “I love that one. You can’t play guitar and be a grown up! Well, Mike is all grown up and he plays guitar. Thanks for having us in your band.”

    Won’t be buying this shirt because of both 1) where the proceeds from it are going to and 2) that the design may have been stolen.

  • Olga Stewart

    By the way, this t-shirt design was created by allthingssoundgarden. And it was posted on her IG page.

    So are you going to give her a credit for this?

    You should, you know.

    I started to scroll and when I saw the infinity symbol i said phew then i scrolled down in horror and saw the Starbucks Cornell and cringed. I kept thinking please don’t let it be that one. Oh well, any tribute to Chris is good.

  • Joe Hell

    That is one hideous shirt…hardly a tribute.

  • Stone Gossardish

    The hair seems a bit out of proportion and long. I want to buy one, I like the front, I don’t like the back.

  • Dude McDuderson

    I was hoping to find out how this shirt is “heartbreaking”. But I didn’t.
