Halloween is right around the corner, and the mall costumes are all slutty or racist or both. So why not make your own costume, and who is better (and/or easier) to dress up as than a musician? Heck, even actual musicians like to dress up as other musicians -- or at least Sum 41's Deryck Whibley does when the musician in question is his ex-wife Avril Lavigne. (For bonus points, Deryck's girlfriends put on a Chad Kroeger costume.)

From "Gangnam Style" to Gotye, this past year has been perfect for music-inspired costumes so here are some suggestions for your music celeb dress-up best bets. Costume contest wins are not guaranteed, but if you lose we'll send a "Kanye" to let everyone know that you are wearing one of the greatest Halloween costumes of all time!
