Eminem is selling bricks from his childhood home at $300 a pop. So, if you’ve got bags of unwanted cash and a hankering for some building utensils, you know where to go. The rest of us will just have a good old laugh and move on to the rest of these weird and wonderful examples of band merch.
From t-shirts to figurines, keyrings and condoms, bands and musicians know no boundaries when it comes to flogging branded tat. This very unofficial Justin Bieber pinata, available at an online party store, will give the Bieb’s haters a lot of pleasure we’re sure.
Keep your kids – or the rampant indie purist and aspirational artist in your life – occupied with this glorious Ween colouring book. Santa take note, pleeease.
Elbow launched their own beer last year, the all-round pleasant-tasting Build A Rocket Boys!.
One of the most infamous pieces of band merch is the Wavves grinder, ideal for building the perfect spliff ahead of a large dose of his slacker lo-fi.
Pharrell Williams also got in on the booze game, launching his own range of premium liquor drinks for ladies called Qream.
This one’s quite cool: a Metallica branded skate deck featuring the obligatory skeleton with pins in his head.
British Sea Power out-tweed even Summer Camp when thy launched their own Kendal Mintcake in 2003. A handy snack for gigs and festivals alike.
Mastodon’s custom made shorts are branded with the band logo on the front and the conveniently description inscription “Asstodon” on the derriere.
Deadmau5 has built a whole image out of his trademark ears, and these MP3 speakers take the – shiver while you say it – brand extension even further.
Fucked Up are so punk they have to run their own merch stand, propping up this ‘back later’ message when they take to the stage. It’s worth the wait, though, to get your hands on these branded shades. What do you mean you’d just nick them?
