St. Vincent Isn’t Happy About “Fashion Kids” Wearing Metallica Shirts, Either
If you’re one of those Metallica fans who gets pissy about people wearing the band’s merch ’cause it looks rad despite not really being Metallica fans, you have an ally in St. Vincent. The metal-loving chanteuse recently tweeted…
I want to be the kind of asshole who sees a fashion kid in a vintage Metallica tee shirt and insists they be able to sing at least one song from “Ride the Lightning.”

Can you imagine being stopped on the street and chastised by St. Vincent? I don’t know if that would be mortifying or hilarious or both.
In any case, Metallica replied to Ms. Vincent:
Give ‘em a break if they don’t know the words to “Escape.” 😂 https://t.co/MxtD1AxuOn

Of course, Metallica make money from shirt sales regardless of who’s buying ’em, so… yeah.
