This week, Metallica release their own version of Monopoly, the latest example of a rock band venturing beyond concert t-shirts and hawking unusual merch. In light of this trend, we here at Hive loaded up our shopping cart with five of our favorite officially licensed rock and pop oddities.
1. The Kiss Kasket
Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean Gene Simmons is done selling you Kiss swag. Unveiled in 2001, this stylish coffin also doubles as a beer cooler, which begs the question: How long until we get Rock and Roll All Nite Ale?
2. Wavves weed grinders
Rule no. 1 of effective salesmanship: Know your audience. For pot-loving Wavves main-man Nathan Williams, he’s made sure fans can always find that spark when in need.
3. The Ghostface Killah Doll
Nine inches tall and resplendent in real gold chains, the Pretty Toney doll will run mad game on your other action figures but it doesn’t come cheap; retail price is set at $74.99.
4. OMAR-S ice tray
5. The Weezer Snuggie
Available in three colors, these fleece wraps are just the thing to wear while rocking Pinkerton and contemplating the coldness of the outside world.
