I thought this died out in the 80s: Actually, I thought this died out with KISS (the original incarnation). But apparently, the concept of outlandish and ridiculous costumes for musicians is not over. Worse, these guys obviously take themselves seriously, while KISS was all about the fun of it all. Well, anyway, the link gives one man's opinion as to the top 10 worst black/death metal costumes ever. Very scary, but not for the reasons the bandmembers probably hoped.
