October 22, 2018
Categories: 

When Halloween rolls around you are tasked with coming up with two creative ideas: an original costume and an original jack-o-lantern. If you wanted to just mail it in, you could go with the standard triangle eyes, nose and toothy smile design. But that's not you, is it? You want all of the neighborhood kids talking about the awesome rock and metal pumpkins populating your front porch!

From Metallica, AC/DC, Nirvana and Iron Maiden, here's a brief look at some rock and metal fans' jack-o-lantern tribute to some of their favorite artists!

AC/DC
