Sometimes, a bit of merchandise just rubs me the wrong way. The world doesn’t need a Metallica version of Monopoly. The very thought of it is ridiculous, especially when the band in question has enough money to fund small countries. I guess their platinum-selling albums and Guitar Hero: Metallica just wasn’t enough. Lest we forget their line of Christmas baubles.
The board game is set to be released next week, and will follow the time-honoured Monopoly set-up with Metallica trivia. They join the ranks of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Kiss. C’mon guys, you can do something cooler than this!
