Most metalheads would agree you can't go wrong with a classic band shirt. But with touring suspended globally, we've seen artists get pretty creative when it comes to thinking up new ways to allow fans to take a piece of them home.
We put the word out this week for you all to share some of the most random merchandise items bands have released recently and you did not disappoint! We also found some pretty weird and wonderful pieces of our own.
So here it is; A list of some of the most unique merchandise items out right now, for when you want something other than a black t-shirt.
It seems many Maniacs followers have come across this cool piece of gear perfect for camping (especially if it was a camping festival). The Gojira Multi-tool features a Gojira logo on a fork, spoon and bottle opener tool on a silver keychain.
Spiritbox Holy Roller Kit
This rolling kit includes a Holy Roller-themed tray, two packs of rolling papers and is "Intended for tobacco use - use responsibly." It's sold-out a lot of the time so if you can get your hands on it, it's a great collector's piece.
In This Moment Birth Certificate
This black paper birth certificate was released to commemorate In This Moment's latest studio album, Mother. If you're not happy with your official family, the next best thing is being adopted by Maria Brink we reckon.
Carcass Torn Arteries Box Set
Moving in with your metalhead significant other? Looking for a cooler alternative to boring wedding china? As far as random merchandise items go, we think this unique set takes the cake (which you can conveniently eat off of the plate afterwards).
Limited to 2000 units worldwide, this set contains a Torn Arteries veggie splatter, double vinyl, CD, 24-pages booklet plus Carcass porcelain plate with stainless steel fork and knife dinnerware set.
There are a few bands have done underwear but there's something especially seedy about 80s glam rockers Whitesnake doing it. The front of this garment features the classic hair metal band's logo, but the writing on the back encouraging wearers to "Shake with the snake" makes us throw up in our mouths a little.
Between The Buried and Me Slipmat
If you're wondering what a slipmat is, it's a circular piece of slippery cloth disk jockeys place on the turntable platter instead of the traditional rubber mat. Should you need one of those, the prog-metal band, Between The Buried and Me, have you covered.
Korn Follow The Leader Pencil
The description merely says, "A red Korn pencil with Follow the Leader design." Just when we thought maths class couldn't get more metal.
In This Moment Crystal Set in Velour Pouch
Another unique gem from In This Moment, this item includes eight clear crystals in a black velour drawstring pouch with circle logo printed on the front in white. It's not clear what kind of crystals are in here but presumably, they're clear quartz which helps with clarity of mind, aids concentration and brings the body into balance.
Biffy Clyro Countdown Candle
Why have regular candles when you can have music-themed ones? Once the candle is done you can even use the glass container to store your Korn pencils or In This Moment crystals. An honourable mention also goes out to Biffy's cute baby onesie.
Rammstein Mein Teil Blowtorch
German metal legends Rammstein have a ton of random merch, from alcohol and license plates to some rather X-rated pieces. We're going to keep things family-friendly today and highlight this Mein Teil Rammstein Blowtorch. What's crazy is this is the 2.0 version, so it's new and improved. We're also going to shout out this unisex perfume set.
