Singer Chris Brown Dons Jacket With Logos of Municipal Waste, Cro-Mags + More
This week in irritating poser news (we assume), R&B singer Chris Brown was recently spotted in a leather jacket covered in the logos of legendary punk and crossover thrash acts.
Brown, who once made headlines for physically abusing then-girlfiend Rihanna, spent a night on the town adorned with both blue and zebra-striped patches, along with the logos of Municipal Waste, Suicidal Tendencies, Cro-Mags, Corrosion of Conformity, D.R.I., The Exploited and more. The world of someone like Chris Brown is deeply rooted in fashion, so apparently the sarcastic adoption of underground passion is in this winter.
Obviously we can’t prove it, but it seems pretty safe to assume that Chris Brown has never listened to any of these pulverizing, aggressive, circle pit-starting acts. Predictably, fans who have found genuine purpose and solace within the underground scene aren’t pleased with Brown’s jacket, with a sentiment of bastardization shared between proud supporters of their favorite bands.
Municipal Waste tweeted a reaction to their inclusion on Chris Brown’s jacket:
For the record. Chris Brown can sport our shit all he wants. We still think he is a fucking moron.

There’s always the chance that Brown is an out-of-the-closet metalhead, but we doubt that. Click below to check out the pictures of Chris Brown in his ironically hip jacket.
