Inspired by "Gunpowder Treason" by Night

The words GUNPOWDER TREASON have nothing to do with that image. You need to understand other points of data to get the interpretation, thus it's not really following the spirit of this derby. The image on it's own should provoke the title.
But don't worry, you probably won't get rejected, very few get rejected in these "interpretation" derbies.

See Gunpowder Treason/Plot, Guy Fawkes and Guy Fawkes Night.

Parliament was the target of the Gunpowder Treason (even though it's not the subject of Night's song).

Yes, however, you need to know this extra tidbit to get the shirt. These derbies have always had the title standing alone without extra info, from either within the object being interpreted or other subject added.

This breaks rule #2 "No pop culture (except the song itself, obvs)"

How so? The Gunpowder Treason was in 1605, with Guy Fawkes as one of the participants. The verse "Remember, remember the fifth of November" is a nursery rhyme from the 1700's. The target of the Gunpowder Plot was the House of Lords in Parliament.

Just because something happened a long time ago doesn't mean it can't also be pop culture. If it became really cool and trendy to all wear top hats, top hats would become pop culture. V for vendetta, turned Guy Fawkes and that whole ordeal pop culture.
