Even rock stars like to play dress-up for Halloween, with many donning costumes in a manner akin to the most excited kids in your neighborhood. Or the most creative.

So for the scary and candy-filled holiday this year, there were several frightening, funny and even fashionable costumes from notable rock and metal musicians.

The Beatles legend Paul McCartney wore a skeleton mask. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello was a pickle. Rock star couple Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) looked like a couple of adventurers fresh off the silver screen.

And while she's not a rock musician, rapper Cardi B used a hearse from the heavy metal bar Duff's Brooklyn in a goth-themed Halloween photo set that evoked The Addams Family matriarch Morticia Addams.

Below, take a look through several rockers' costumes from Halloween 2021. As you'll see, they range from expert to slapdash. Either way, they're all entertaining.
