Every Time I Die Were Featured in Taylor Swift’s Album Artwork


When Taylor Swift comes into the topic of conversation (it happens), your mind most likely doesn’t immediately turn to spiky armbands, inverted crosses or church burnings (except when it comes to this black metal cover of “Bad Blood“); the country-turned-pop star isn’t exactly known for blast beats, down-tuned riffs and guttural vocals. But as it turns out, Swift’s 2014 release 1989 has a little bit of metal in it after all.

Physical copies of 1989 each came with five Polaroid photos featuring a picture of Swift and lyrics written underneath. Of the 65 different Polaroid photos that were available, one features a most curious metal connection: lyrics from the Every Time I Die song “Buffalo 666” scrawled on the wall behind the singer (“If you leave me, I’m coming with you”). ETID frontman Keith Buckley stumbled upon the photo on social media the other night and was understandably shocked; was the placement intentional or was it just a coincidence?

Unless Buckley some day runs into Swift backstage at an awards show we’ll probably never know. Check out the image and Buckley’s post below.
