In addition to its array of basics, graphic tees, and polos, H&M sells quite a few rock and metal band T-shirts.
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.”
