So are DC Shoes and Grenade stickers a sign
« on: June 18, 2007, 07:58:35 PM »
that we should all get off the road? I swear to God, every time I see a car with a DC Shoes sticker and/or a Grenade sticker they are cutting someone off or doing something else completely stupid.

When you get these stickers is there a form you sign that says "I <insert name> do hereby swear to drive like a complete assface and endanger the lives of everyone else on the road."

I'm far from perfect, but I will tell you this, if you see a car with a DC Shoes and/or Grenade be ready. I also hate to say that in most cases, these two stickers (one or both) are seen more often than not on VWs and Audis. Now I know not all owners with said stickers are assfaces and endangering the welfare of prairie dogs and humans alike, but it is getting insane. Maybe it's all the suburbanite kids? Maybe DC Shoes actually inject a drug through the sole of the shoe into your foot and then your bloodstream that makes you totally crazy.

Sorry if I have offended any DC Shoes and/or Grenade sticker sporting owners, I always offer the benefit of the doubt, so unless I witness you doing something psychotic behind the wheel I wont group you with the other nut jobs I see on a daily basis. ;)

I'm thinking about getting these stickers myself so I can blend in better. :D

What does the Grenade sticker mean/stand for/represent anyway? I think it's cool as hell with all skull hand and stuff, but never did have an association with it.

And for the record, I usually see them on SUVs...

DC Shoes is a shoe brand, http://www.dcshoes.com/home.asp the overlapping DC is what you see on cars.

The grenade thing, I have no clue because I am an old man. I know Green Day had used it with their last album, but at this point I just think people get em to have em.

I did see two SUVs today with the DC sticker, I kept my distance. :P

this is the sticker they are talking about.



the part owner and co-funder is also into rally racing, and owns a 2006 STi that he ran in One Lap last year.  I believe he also sponsors a variety of rally teams as well.

If my thinking is correct, Grenade is Grenade Glove, a snow boarding clothing company...as is DC...they do clothing as well, skater, boarder, etc.

There it is! Good job Jon! And DC Shoes are a popular skate shoe so that makes sense that they go hand in hand...or hand in foot...HA!.

Standard Grenade is for Grenade Glove

I too have noticed this phenomenon.
Then this afternoon while I was praying I wouldn't fly through the windshield as my carpool friend from work was trying to catch up to his friends car by making a one lane road into two, driving 3" from the car in front of us, all while complaining that "no one knows how to drive," I remembered that there's a big red DC sticker on the back window of his truck.
Weird.

No, you are not stupid, just metro!!! :D

I'd guess DC & granades has replaced the Nike sticker -- still annoying.

Man I'd have to get paid well, or own a lot of stock in a company before I'd put their logo on my car.

I have to be fair to the DC Shoe sporting people. I have not had any run ins in a few weeks now. Maybe the word got out, maybe it was the alignments of the planets around the time I originally posted this.

Even today I spotted a Honda or something with DC stickers and they were driving nice and mellow.

LOL, this is a funny thread and honestly, thanks for the clarification- I really learned something here.  I used to wonder what the grenade thing was all about...I also knew DC was a shoe company,etc. but again, never understood how they translated to being on cars though. 

...and I usally see this sticker/combo on SUV's :)

We have a lot of those up here ??? It is big big-mountain snowboard country so that's expected, but it's not quite the trend is must be in Denver. My favorite is the Chevy Malibu with DC Shoe stickers on the hood. If I see it, I'll try and take a pic.

WRX's and STI's are HUGE here...most of the guys are pretty chill though and non rock the sticker thing.

ya i don't know why it's so popular, but i used to work at a ski resort in so cal and we only sold 3 kinds of gloves, scott, dakine and grenade. every now and again we'd get some free grenade stickers for working in the retail shop on the mtn. i've noticed that it's only big on the west coast because i moved to virginia back in november and i have gone a few ski/snowboard shops out here, which are pretty much a joke, and they have never heard of grenade gloves.  ???

it is just a trend... 5 years ago it was the Fox symbol (fox clothing)... all these people that didn't even know the difference between a MX bike and street bike sported the Fox logo on their car... fashion.

No Fear 10 years ago.  I can't remember any more.
