Dumb

Metallica Monopoly.


Monopoly Metallica Collectors Edition, DUMB, drollgirl




"The fast-dealing property trading game" just got faster! MONOPOLY METALLICA Collector's Edition takes the popular board game to a whole new level. Every aspect of the game designed for the true Metallica fan in mind. You'll "Pass Go" through historic Metallica events and locations around the board such as club shows, festivals, studios, childhood homes and other metal landmarks. Create your own real estate empire by adding arenas and stadiums to all your properties!

Game pieces include the Kill 'Em All hammer, ...And Justice For All scales, St. Anger fist, Black Album snake, ninja star, and the 'Jump in the Fire' demon. Land on one of the "Binge and Purge" or "Jump in the Fire" spaces and be rewarded or fined in true Metallica form. "You won't believe the price you'll pay!"


So fucking stupid.  Metallica used to be an amazing band (in the 80's), but they haven't put out a decent album in decades.  Releasing this stupid board game is further proof that band has officially sold out and has become a caricature of what they used to be.  So fucking stupid.

Ugh, I know what you mean!! Hate when bands/movies/book do something whack just to make an extra buck or two

(and yes, I did just use the word "whack";)

Yeah!

I have almost an "audio-photographic" mind... I can remember the melodies, lyrics, and guitar solos for almost any song I've heard more than a few times. It was weird on my recent vacation since the catamaran we were on for our snorkeling trip was playing all 1980s pop music. I recognized all of it, which was just crazy!

Anyhoo, my point was that I could whistle the opening solo for Metallica's "Fade to Black, but nothing from the last 15 years. What an effing waste.

Agreed. I don't see the appeal.

Ridiculiculiculous! Can you imagine playing this with children. Ha! What adult in their right mind wants to play any version of Monopoly unless it is with a kid, let alone a Metalica version? Eekgads! Rock on!

Haute World said...

This is especially lame considering there are way more legendary bands out there, who don't have a Monopoly game to their name (or have Queen and Led Zeppelin released Monopolys without my knowledge?). Disturbingly enough, there probably are Metallica fans who'll get this. The same ones who thought the Whisky in a Jar cover was good and think Lars Ulrich is sexy.

Not that I disagree with your point, but if someone offered YOU a shitpile of money simply to use your image for something lame, I'm pretty sure you'd take the cash also.
