Kings of Leon Start New Fashion Line
I realize this may be a highly unpopular thing to say, but I think it's time for the Kings of Leon to go on sabbatical. The Tennessee quartet and their overplayed songs have found just one more way to make being a hipster more obnoxious and, yes, more expensive. The Followill boys, who once claimed that they had their mother sew their jeans tighter than they could buy them, are now selling jeans modeled after their own for nearly $225. A plaid shirt will run you just over $175, and a seemingly ordinary red bandanna is over $100. Come on, people. Sadly, I don't think their 15 minutes of fame are about to run out. But hurry! Their $330 guitar straps just might!
