It’s just a few days before Thanksgiving, and we’re really happy to report that we haven’t been inundated with tacky holiday sweaters yet. First of all, the shirts or long-sleeved shirts have a short shelf life. You’ll only wear them for maybe a month or so, and only a few times at that. Secondly, they’re usually not even sweaters, just long-sleeved shirts with prints on them. We’re not saying we won’t cover them if a really cool or funny design comes up, but let’s all admit that they’re a trend whose time has come and gone, even though it’s not the holidays yet.
At any rate, we’ve been more excited by shirts you can wear all year around, and online company Sex&Death has some pretty awesome designs that combine iconic band images with pop stars, among others. We’ve seen their Beyonce/Venom shirt before and high fived the random dude we saw at a concert wearing it. The Aaliyah/Anthrax one is also pretty dope. Their “heavy metal vomit party” one is brutal, in that it takes tons of barely-decipherable logos and throws them together on the same shirt. Their Morissey/Mayhem one is also dope if you like either artist, and there’s also a Drake/Death shirt. You get the point. Head over to their site and check it out.
We’re also giving you a chance to win a shirt from Sex&Death. Head over to the site, check it out and mail contests[at]metalinsider[dot]net with “shirt contest” in the subject line and your size and shirt choice in the body of the email. We’ll pick a winner at random on Sorry, this contest is open to US residents only.
