telling Marilyn Manson (and I paraphrase): “Enjoy being the devil while it lasts. In the 80’s the PMRC dragged me before Congress, but today my songs are played in baseball parks!”

  1. best slots to play at rivers casino And not just metal, punk and grunge artists are sold in trendy/mass-appealing/affordable fashion shops as well. H&M is especially notorious for doing that.

    slot machine casinos in san jose california However, I don’t think it would be possible without Iron Maiden’s (or their trusted representative’s) consent. The music industry has become a huge shopping mall where musicians aren’t artists, but brands with well-known/catchy names and logos. And that sells.

But I guess my objection or surprise is at the bands chosen. We know KISS is a merchandising juggernaut. We know the Stones are a corporation. But Maiden, the Ramones or Bob Marley seemed too authentic to be reduced to hipster marketing.

When has metal become safe enough for kids?” As Pris thoughtfully expressed, it’s not just metal, either. But, I don’t think age has really anything to do with it other than a lack of education and genuine ignorance.

    qualification for online casino dealer If the younger generations who are wearing Sex Pistols and Black Flag gear actually understood who they were and what they stood for, they wouldn’t be sporting them so casually. Most likely, they’d either they’d find new heroes to worship or would be appalled. At the same token, though Maiden, Sister, and other metal legends’ management may have given permission to sell the merchandise, I really doubt that Dee Snider or Steve Harris would be happy to see their logos coupled with a Dior cardigan and capris…
