Heavy Metal Ugly Christmas Sweaters Have Officially Jumped The Shark

Posted by on November 7, 2013 at 1:24 pm

ENOUGH WITH THE CHRISTMAS SWEATERS PLEASE!

OK, when Slayer did it, it was kinda funny. Then, Metallica got in the game and I began to question the uniqueness of the idea.

Motorhead, Attila, Between The Buried and Me, and Devildriver had ugly sweaters released all within the last two weeks.

The flood gates have opened and there is no stopping now.

Dying Fetus just released a "Kill Your Mother Rape Your Dog" ugly Christmas sweater. Let me repeat, Dying Fetus. Christmas Sweater.

Victory Records just released an entire line of sweaters for a slew of bands on their roster.

Suddenly, something that was initially presented as an ironic joke is getting to be very sincere. There is no joke anymore, it's just now a sub-subgenre of metal merch, and I for one am over it!
