6 Weird And Fabulous Items Of Band Merchandise
TODAY, the world’s press heard about Britney Spears launching a new lingerie line, which just so happens to be called The Intimate Collection.
She announced this by posting a picture of her herself wearing the new range on Instagram. And she looked perfectly lovely in it.
Britter’s range will hit the shelves Stateside on September 9th and Europeans will either have to learn how to use the internet to buy things from abroad, or wait a few days and buy in European shops on September 26th.
That’s not the story though. It got us thinking about band merchandise – not everyone can be classy enough to release a range of tasteful undercrackers.
Most bands don’t veer too far away from t-shirts and mugs, but some go a bit mental. Tenacious D had a specially designated cum-rag fercryinoutloud.
So with that, shall we have a look at some of the weirdest (and therefore best) bits of band merch ever? Feel free to add you own in the comments.
Rammstein Dildo Box
Rammstein released a box-set with a load of dildos in it and, of course, they decided to base the sex toys on their own junk. That’s nice isn’t it?
Prodigy Toilet Cover Seat
The Prodigy were dance musicians playing at being punks and when they were big, they decided that they wanted a Prodge toilet cover seat. Heave with me.
You can buy a bikini of your favourite metal band, Mastodon. That’s not too outrageous or funny. However, look at the seat of the bikini bottoms. Now you’re talking.
Alice Cooper Eyeliner
Alice Cooper is, of course, most famous for his speech about Native Americans in Wayne’s World. He’s also done a load of great music too, all while dressed in horror make-up. With that, it was only right that he got to flog his own brand.
British Sea Power Cake
Indie band British Sea Power thought they’d treat their fans to some BSP-branded Kendal Mint Cake, which is nice. More bands should feed their fans.
Kiss – the kings of merch – outdid everyone on Earth when they started selling their ‘Kiss Forever’ coffin. Not planning on dying yet? No worries. The Kiss Coffin also doubles up as a really fancy beer cooler. No shit.
