WAL-MART co-opting metal for Halloween
- Posted on October 2, 2009
Yay, Halloween! It's the most metal day of the year. Leave it to Wal-Mart to make it all a little more fun. Now your child can look like a reject out of a Marilyn Manson video by wearing one of these Wal-Mart Halloween costumes. There is the Cryptic Rocker, who looks like what Slash will be in his 60s, then there is Metal Mayhem Child, who looks like what somebody who just looked up black metal on Wikipedia would look like, and finally Death Rider, which has such a pleasant ring to it. Or, if you don't want to do the whole get-up, they are also selling fake axe-guitars. Ultimately, I guess its's a cheap solution for your kid to look kvlt while trick or treating. And, ultimately, better this than dressing like a Jonas Brother. I mean, uhh, what's a Jonas brother?
