Two different types of official Metallica
neckties are being sold in the band's webstore for $52.99 each: ninja star necktie and snake necktie.
Almost three years ago, a Metallica fan with the username "jbjbcs1
" posted a message in the band's official forum in which he requested that ties be added to the group's webstore. He wrote, "I wear ties to work. I would love to see some tie options offered by the store to the fans. I realize that a tie may not seem very Metallica-esque, but I would bet you have some takers on this. Styles could include black with a snake, white with the 'Death Magnetic' coffin, '...And Justice' cover, 'Lightning' cover, 'Kill 'Em All' hammer, name icons and logos
Another fan, "In Limbo
", chimed in, "Yeah, if it was like the ninja star logo, or a bunch of little ninja-star logos, that would be fine. I don't think anyone wants to see a tie with a bloody hammer, a grave that looks like a vag. I don't think that's really appropriate work attire. Haha
