H&M Is Being Seriously Trolled Because Of Their Fake Band Shirts
Or, why you shouldn't mess with the metal music world.
But did you know they also sell band tees of bands that, well, ~don't exist~?
Mortus = NOT A REAL BAND. The One Only = NOT A REAL BAND.
In fact, this bomber jacket — sold by H&M in Sweden — is covered in imaginary band patches.
There's patches that have the names YVAEH, LANY, Crepuscular, Motmros, Blast, and Grey — along with a patch that just says METAL, because of course.
But the bands might not be so fake after all.
This week, a YouTube video featuring tracks of many of the bands adorned on H&M's clothing popped up.
A label called Strong Scene Productions claimed that they were simply releasing music from "long forgotten bands." The bands all happened to have the same names as the fake ones on H&M's clothing.
"As illustrated by the bomber jacket and t-shirts worn by the models of H & M," they wrote on their Facebook page, "the new items feature logos from long-forgotten underground goth and thrash acts such as the French LANY, Mexican MORTUS, American 'cosmic hippie metal'-gurus MYSTIC TRIANGLE and GREY from Germany – the originator of the whole symphonic female metal-genre."
The bands had song titles like “Sign of the Antichrist,” “Hellish Massacre,” “Holocaust Tomb,” and, best of all, “Vaginal’s Juice Dripping Into Cadaverous.”
