Metallica has reached critical mass. That sounds almost dumb to say about a band that has the top-selling album of the SoundScan era (16.5 million and counting) and just played with Lady Gaga at the Grammys. But even non-metalheads know “Enter Sandman,” and Justin Bieber fans see him wearing their shirts. So it should come as no surprise that Urban Outfitters have teamed up with Metallica for an exclusive collection.
Sure, some people might just be buying Metallica shirts for the logos, but the designs are cool enough to get even die-hards to pick up a shirt or two. The nine exclusive designs include a Pushead tie-die tee of the “Damaged Justice” design, another really cool Pushead design that takes up the whole front of the shirt, and a pair of hoodies including a simple Ride the Lightning-era logo with lightning on the sides. You can even pick up a fluorescent beanie.
