The dark jokes and black humor of Icelandic cartoonist Hugleikur Dagsson breathe some new life into a variety of famous songs in these wonderfully dark fun comics. They cross a variety of genres, from rock to punk, to europop and Christmas carols, but all of them will be songs you’ll know and possibly love, but that might end. Because the illustrations Dagsson uses sometimes makes these dark humor jokes very literal.

Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’ for example shows someone walking around with a Jesus figure on a dog chain walking behind them. Others are less literal but equally full of black humor. Like KISS’s ‘I Was Made For Lovin’ You’ which shows a man in the process of pumping up a sex doll. His dark jokes are weird, but very funny.

Dagsson comes from Iceland, a place that in midwinter has around five hours of light a day. In the country’s capital, Reykjavik, for the shortest day of the year—the winter solstice—the sun sets as early as three thirty in the afternoon. So, like all Icelanders, Dagsson knows darkness and it permeates his dark jokes and comics too.
