These Metal/Rap Mashup Patches Are How Alternate Metal Merch Should Be

Posted by on October 14, 2016 at 1:19 pm

You've seen the countless metal-inspired merch articles we've run on here, and frankly, most of the ones I've seen are absolute shit. Beyonce made a pin that rips off Slayer's logo for no real reason, An inexplicable Justin Bieber/Marylin Manson shirt that'll run you $195, and some stupid hoodie that I think costs you your genitals and three teeth or something like that. I'm not saying I'm opposed to pop culture jacking metal, I'm just saying if you're gonna do it, at least make it make sense and be fucking creative it, yeah?

Now an artist who I believe goes by the name James Jirat is selling rap/metal mashup patches, and they're well done. Black Street in the style of Black Sabbath? Eazy E as a Sunn O))) tribute? Doom restyled to be MF Doom? It's fantastic.

Absolutely don't hesitate to grab one here. Maybe he'll do more? We could always use some Aesop Rock, Cage, and Hieroglyphics ones…

Before you go getting offended, just know that even Kreator thinks this is kind of cool:

      you sir, are a moron

        You sir, have terrible taste in music and culture. Go post on some BET message board. It's obvious metal is not your taste.

          Get a life, you one-dimensional trash. Many people have diverse tastes in music. I can listen to Origin and Doomtree and be equally appreciative of both.

            Sounds like you have a mental disorder.

          • Ryan R Miller

            I suppose abstract thought would sound like a mental disorder to the mentally handicapped.

            I apologize. Here's my rap song: "Shake that booty. Smoke that tooty. Yeah, yeah, yeah, stick in her butt and say what. ". Golly gee, that sure was hard to come up with.

          • Ryan R Miller

            You realize not all rap is like that, in the same way all metal isn't about "Satan" and "dismemberment", right? You're the same shithead that frames metal as such.

          • Aiwass

            I'm guessing you've only heard a very small selection of rap songs.

        • Trve Kvlt Neil

          You are fucking dumb. You have a retarded opinion if you think Metal is the only good music.

    • Ryan R Miller

      A lot of rap/hip hop is crap. Great hip hop is awesome, however.

        Nice. I need to check this. No Bird Sing is one of my absolute favorites.

    Aes and Cage (both who are awesome, BTW) have already used artists who've done artwork for rock/metal bands… Alex Pardee in particular. I've got a Sadistik shirt that's metal AF as well. Good hip hop doesn't live in a box. Aesop Rock in particular is a HUGE fan of all types of great visual artists.

      What's the Sadistik shirt? Big fan of his but never really looked through his merch.

    • Joe Manzella

    • Joe Manzella

      • Trve Kvlt Neil
