His name is Butcher Billy, and his art is stunning! Regardless of the topic–he covers everything from political satire to pop culture–there’s magic in his pen and my eyes just about fell out of my head when I discovered a series he released last year.

The artist, inspired by classic artwork from the covers of Stephen King novels, imagined an alternative timeline where the lyrics of equally classic heartbreak songs were, in fact, the titles of King’s novels and the results…well take a look below.

I guarantee you’ll never hear these songs the same way again! I’ve included the name of the bands/artists above the photos. I bet you can’t make it through the whole list without singing one of these titles!

Joy Division

Bonnie Tyler (God I love this song!)

The Smiths

Lionel Richie (Now I want to hear Marilyn Manson cover this…Maybe with Trent Reznor)

Bee Gees (I hear you humming out there…)

New Order

Nazareth (You know this one had to be on here!)
