If you haven’t been outside over the last four or so months, then you luckily haven’t seen the growing fad of fidget spinners. They’ll surely be gone within another few months, but while they’re still here, someone out there is trying to cash in on the trend by marketing them towards music fans. With a little creative searching, you’ll see spinners featuring Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Prince, Nirvana, David Bowie, Queens of the Stone Age, Modest Mouse, and even a Mighty Mighty Bosstones one. We’d caution buyer beware for most of these, however. We’re not here to promote fads.
