Merchbar February Hot Merch Chart: Fallen Stars, Rising Stars
We lost quite a few music legends in January and out latest Merchbar Hot Merch Chart reflects fan admiration for our fallen rock stars. In addition to the merch fans are buying in memoriam, there are a few new surprises and some notable standouts as new albums and tours have been announced.
Motorhead merch fans take the #1 spot this month as the “Lemmy Lived to Win” memorial t-shirt soared to the top. Motorhead founder and frontman, Lemmy (born Ian Kilmister) died on December 28, 2015 at age 70. The memorial shirt was released in January. Lemmy is widely considered as one of the fathers of the heavy metal genre. This t-shirt features an image of Lemmy on the front with “Born to Lose, Lived to Win” on the back.
Camouflage and camouflage-colored merch has been a hot trend as well. Fans are still clamoring for The Weeknd merch after his successful tour run and his classic XO logo tee in a new hunter green colorway seems to be a fan fave. And Sam Hunt merch makes another foray in our Top 10 with his Montevello Camo Hat. With scheduled GRAMMY performances in just a few days, we’re sure we’ll be seeing both The Weeknd merch and Sam Hunt merch remaining in our top 10 for some time to come.
Rounding out the top 5 for the month of February, we have Lionel Richie merch and Zomboy merch. Check out the complete Merchbar Hot Merch Top 10 below.
