Metallica Monopoly coming next week

Metallica have been ramping up the number of products in their official store, and there’s another one set to be unveiled next week.

Metallica Monopoly.

Really? Yup.

Metallica joins a list of customized versions of the game by other music artists like The Beatles, KISS and Elvis, among others.

Metallica’ game will be available next week from their official store here.

The band has not provided any further details regarding the game at this point, so it’s unknown if the properties are the standard Monopoly version or have been Metallica’d.

Metallica was recently voted the most influential rock group of the last 30 years by the readers of the British magazine Kerrang!

"It gives me a very warm and fuzzy feeling that Kerrang! Magazine have voted Metallica as the band that most changed their lives,” said drummer Lars Ulrich. “I remember the first issue of the magazine in 1981. I had made a pilgrimage to England because I was obsessed with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. I travelled all over the country and that first issue accompanied me everywhere."
