WARNING: The gallery above contains graphic images of human bodies after death and dissection.

Body Worlds, the creepy and controversial travelling collection of human bodies preserved using a process called plastination, has been giving the public some shocking biology lessons since its first exhibition in 1995.

Just the other day we were perusing photos of the exhibit's preserved cadavers, as one does, and we noticed that many of the bodies on display look like living rock stars. You know, rock stars if they didn't have any skin.

We picked a few of our favourites and created the gallery above to compare the rockers to the corpses.

But if you don't fear the reaper, check it out.
