"Reanimated corpse" isn't entirely accurate. It's actually a hologram of the late, great West-coast rapper, which gave a surprise performance to finish off the first week of Coachella 2012. This proves that (a) industry executives can own your body as well as your soul, and (b) '90s nostalgia has gotten WAY out of hand.

What you're seeing in the last panel is the brain releasing dopamine, kittens, and the mellow hits of Phil Collins into the body as a last-ditch attempt to numb the crushing pain of music festivals. Or maybe it was just awesome and everything else was actually just a minor inconvenience.

This epic meet-up went down in 1980, during Queen's tour promoting their new album The Game. I'm sure it made the part where Freddie croons "Mamaaaaaa..." during Bohemian Rhapsody that much more poignant.

Oh wait, the prequels weren't out yet. It was a simpler time.

This was allegedly sent to the producers of the FunFunFun Fest in Austin, where Slayer played earlier this year, and dear god we hope it's real. Because as great as Slayer is, knowing that they order "hand sanitizer" AND "hand satanizer" makes them ten times as great.
