This sweet muscle tank celebrates the band Metallica, and it features the same portrait of the band that was used for the cover of their first ever extended play, released in 1987. The official title of the release was The $5.98 EP- Garage Days Re-Revisited, and the band purposely put the price in the title to discourage retailers from overcharging fans. In fact, the packaging even included a sticker that said "If they try to charge more, STEAL IT!". The release of the EP was the result of an idea from the band's UK label, Vertigo Records. The label thought that Metallica should put out a new album to celebrate the band's invitation to play the 1987 Monsters of Rock festival. Due to various circumstances it wound up being easier for them to release the EP than to record a whole new album.
The $5.98 EP- Garage Days Re-Revisited was released several months after the band completed their Damage, Inc. Tour in support of their seminal album Master of Puppets. This was the last tour to feature beloved bassist Cliff Burton, who tragically died before its completion in a tour bus accident, while the band was on route to Copenhagen. While the loss of Burton was devastating, the remaining Metallica members reasoned that the late bassist would want them to carry on, and Garage Days Re-Revisited wound up being their first release after his passing.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small.
