Photos Of Birds That Look Like Heavy Metal Heroes From MOTÖRHEAD JUDAS PRIEST, TWISTED SISTER, And More

Posted by on May 4, 2019 at 10:12 am

Sometime early last month on his Twitter feed, a guy named Andy Cochran started posting images of birds side-by-side with photos of various heavy metal/hair band musicians like Sebastian Bach, Dimebag Darrell, Rob Halford, and everyone's favorite "Philthy Animal" former Motörhead timekeeper, Phil Taylor (RIP).

The latest entry into his heavy metal vision quest–just posted on May 2nd, features the uncanny resemblance of Faster Pussycat's Taime Downe, and a Hoatzin aka, a "stinkbird" which are found in swamps, riparian forests, and mangroves of the Amazon and the Orinoco basins in South America. Cochran matches up various birdies with their headbanging doppelgangers based on color as well as hairstyle, facial expressions, and even makeup–because for some reason only Cochran seems to know a bird exists that looks like Dee Snider, makeup and all.

As I don't want to spoil this fun time-killer of a post, I'll leave you to check out all of Cochran's bird friends who also happen to look like famous metalheads of the 80s and 90s below. Birdwatching just got my seal of approval–devil horns out!
