Coolest Costumes in Rock
Alternative and indie rock artists aren’t usually known for dressing up onstage – for all the high-art ambition such bands bring to their music, it rarely translates into wild onstage personas or crazy costumes. With earnestness and authenticity valued so highly in the scene, it’s the rare band that is willing to put that on the line for the sake of a cool outfit.
Of course, that all changes on Halloween, and even outside of that night there are several bands that have been known to play dress up over the years. And some outfits based much of their career around it — where would Devo be without their flower pot hats or Daft Punk without their robotic helmets? With that in mind, and in partnership with our friends at Ultimate Classic Rock, we bring you our list of the Coolest Costumes In Rock.
