9 Totally Crazy Pieces of Band Merch

Categories: Lists

If someone is a hardcore fan of a band or artist, it seems he will shell out any amount of money to get his hands on their merch.

I'm not just talking shirts or albums, either, and bands have been answering that call by offering up some truly ridiculous shit to satisfy the needs of their fans to have something unique and sometimes just plain weird to prove their insane fandom.

Here are some of the best (slash worst?) examples of absurd band merchandise available to the public, with links in case you're so inclined to purchase them (Warning: the last picture is definitely NSFW).

9. Insane Clown Posse Watch: This all started when I saw a post on Craigslist for an ICP timepiece. What time is it? Time to paint my face. How about now? Time to pick up my Juggalo friends for the show. Now? Time to contemplate fucking magnets and how they work. The ad says it's "daily water resistant," but there's no confirmation that it's Faygo resistant.


8. Bob Marley "One Love" Incense Sticks: Merchandiser Liquid Blue invites fans to "enjoy the scents and vivid imagery of this iconic musician." Also, they hope you like jammin', too. I haven't experienced their harmonic vibrations personally, but my guess is that they smell like a Trustafarian's freshman dorm room.

7. Weird Al Trading Cards: Things one will never hear: "I'll trade you this Sammy Sosa rookie card for your Fat cover art card..." Nonetheless, these cards, which come in packs of 10 or 50 have information about the recordings, "Al Facts," and pictures of the world famous parodist in his most infamous getups. They are, however, limited edition, so get 'em while you can. There are some on eBay for $50. Seriously.

Good call, sorry about that. I'm fluent in French, but know no German. Ramming stone actually sounds better than battering ram for the purposes of this piece, though. Thanks!

How is a watch with a band logo weird? Almost all bands have merch like that out there, you're just a moron.

Andrew Jackson Jihad made a pillowcase as well. I think they might be sold out by now, but they used to be available through the Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club
