Classic Pop Songs Reimagined as Stephen King Covers

From the first look at a Stephen King cover, from It to Cujowe know horror is waiting between the pages. His impact on pop culture is huge, with numerous adaptations of his work and an overwhelming love for the man. He has inspired other authors as well as popular new tv shows like Stranger Things

Artist, Butcher Billy, uses King’s art-style to reimagine 70s and 80s pop hits with haunting covers. Imagine if The Smiths’ There is a Light that Never Goes Out was a Stephen King novel instead. What would it like it? Billy shows that you can even make pop ballads look gruesome in his multiple reimaginings of classic songs.

He even made VHS covers with the lyrics printed on the back.
