The Caw: 'All Time Low' Chosen As Baltimore's Band For Cool T-Shirt

This one's for those early holiday shoppers.

The NFL has released a limited-edition T-shirt line called "My Team My City," which pairs teams and cities with famous bands hailing from their area.

Baltimore's selection is American rock band "All Time Low," which hails from Towson and is full of diehard Ravens fans.

All Time Low's most recent award-winning album, Future Hearts, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and sold 75,000 copies in its first week, becoming the band's biggest album ever. The band just finished a massive tour with Blink-182 and plays worldwide.

Other band/team T-shirt pairings include Frank Sinatra for the New York Giants, Jerry Garcia for the San Francisco 49ers, Fergie for the Miami Dolphins and many, many more.

"We were like, 'Wow, that's amazing,'" lead guitarist Jack Barakat said. "We were honored that they chose us to represent the city. It's a really big deal to us."

The band members have been huge Ravens fans for quite some time now. They never miss watching a game (no matter where they are in the world) and have also become close friends with kicker Justin Tucker, long snapper Morgan Cox and more. Barakat and lead singer Alex Gaskarth were groomsmen in Tucker's wedding.

The Ravens don't have a ton of celebrity fans. Swimmer Michael Phelps, actors Josh Charles and pop culture celeb (and former Ravens cheerleader) Stacy Keibler top the list. In terms of musicians, All Time Low is at the top.

"It's kind of awesome," Bakarat said. "You've got 'All Time Low,' 'OAR,' 'Sisqo.' It's great that we're not in a bigger city like New York or San Fran where we'd never have a chance to get so close to a team that we love."

The T-shirt has the name of one of All Time Low's hit songs, "For Baltimore" on the front, and their band's logo is worked into the Ravens/Maryland flag shield. They helped choose the design themselves.

Proceeds will benefit Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baltimore, who the group chose. Boys Hope Girls Hope breaks cycles of poverty by nurturing students to be successful in school, graduate college and be outstanding community citizens.

"We want to help the kids," Barakat said. "It's about children getting their education and realizing their full potential. It's about giving every kid a chance to live the life they want to live."

Make sure you get your T-shirt as soon as possible. They will stop being sold in less than a week, and will apparently never be offered again.

Cox is getting Ravens' players sizes sent to Barakat, so expect to see players rocking them soon.
