Now here's what we call a creative idea - combining that brutal metal t-shirt look with some of the most popular pop names of today. The outcome? 'Metal tees for soft rock fans', or soft-metal as the authors call it - black metal t-shirts with the likes of Justin Bieber, ABBA and Celine Dion printed on them.

Imagine the faces of your metalhead friends if you showed up wearing one of these. What's also funny is that the t-shirts actually have some wicked artwork, as you can see below.

"Scratching your head at the headline? That's the idea. The clever artists behind soft-metal create artwork that would be at home on any Megadeth album, but attach it to artists like Justin Bieber, ABBA, and Celine Dion. Screen-printed onto American Apparel mens T-shirts, these are wickedly funny, high-concept tees".

Project coordinator David Ward says it's all about 'fusing the black metal heart with the love of soft hits'.

"As a child, my parents forced me to listen to AOR in the car - all the time. Now, I have the perfect shirt to fuse my black metal heart with their love of soft hits."

The t-shirts come with a price of $30 plus shipment and are available over at Fab.com in various sizes.

So how do you like the t-shirts? And would you consider actually buying one of these? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Never thought ABBA could be so brutal.

    Whenever you post, there's at least one comment about boobs appears... But I can understand why.

    I think they're making fun of "soft rock" bands, as they call them.

    It's funny that you had to clarify this to all these people that couldn't seem to understand this. How could people not see that this is a joke? Seriously, think about it. Some people actually could not understand that these shirts are a joke. That's just... strange.

    I've seen more of these on another website (actually ages ago). There was a brilliant Barry White t-shirt. Not sure if it's the same guy but it probably is. These Are absolutely epic, no question

    I've seen a really brutal Phil Collins one somewhere. Some might find it.

    I actually love Phil Collins and metal, so that would have been the perfect t-shirt if only for the comedy value.

    So bizarre. I want one of Elton John, his face would actually look creepy on a shirt like these.

    I think its cool as long as metal starts getting a better image
    hereticfive
    its not though, because there are always going to be those dumb kids who will think metal bands are the ones who ripped the popstars off. Kinda like how black veil brides fans think HIM copied bvb's cover of rebel yell -__-

    Do a Taylor Swift one with some kind of psychopathic hellfire demon or something on it.

    Even if you're a fan of said bands I can see the joke wearing off really quick. It might shock you or other people and be funny the first time, but the second, third and fourth... This is throwaway stuff. I certainly wouldn't buy it. Also, 30 bucks? Come on...

    Kenny G would be effin hilarious! Or acts like Wham, Michael Bolton, etc. Just something off the norm.

    30 bucks for something that will get old so fast? fun at first but then what?

    looks interesting enough. I'd rather have the classics than modern ones though. I want a Lobo one lol

    what a terrible idea, the beiber one is awful. and whats with the inverted pentagrams,
    MrDo0m
    The inverted pentagrams are to make the shirt look more "metal," as that is the joke. A joke is something that is intended to make one laugh. The shirts are of popstars, but are made to look "metal." The joke is that normally shirts for these popstars would not look like this.
    Way Cool JR.
    I wouldn't buy one in a million years. I wouldn't even buy them if they had good metal bands on them. They are way overdone and juvenile looking IMO.

    soooo does this mean that metal is fashionable now? kind of hope that metal stay leaning towards the underground and not the mainstream. i feel like metal is in a good place right now.
    1renman2
    Because as soon as metal became mainstream, we would have to find something else to listen to right?
    Metallicaxp
    I quite enjoy Death Metal, so my favourite bands already do this. I would not buy one.
    soundsabbath
    No UG i wouldn't consider buying any of them because at the end of the day it still says Beiber on it! What ****in idiots 'unless you are a fan of celine dion' would buy them? For a cheap laugh? Discuss in the comments below

    I wanted to say something to you, but since you wrote "Duscuss in the comments below" I will just write a meaningless comment containing an insult. Humorless no-lifer.

    Eh, weren't the original ideas for these types of t-shirts done by a guy named Joey James Hernandez? Who the hell is this David Ward guy?
    lefty311
    Quite ****ing stupid. Anyone who likes these probably thinks Two And A Half Men is a funny show.
