It’s here — Thursday marks Halloween, the annual holiday when kids across North America (and some out-of-place older kids, probably) will head out trick-or-treating, going door-to-door to ask for candy from strangers and adults dress up just because they can. Hope your Ozzy Osbourne costume is coming along nicely, by the way!
While it’s an admittedly odd custom from a general standpoint, it’s one we love so dearly thanks to our collective crippling addiction to sugar, not to mention the chance to dress up as our favorite Marvel characters or scary demons for a few hours.
Part of the fun each year is carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, which yields some pretty great results every now and then. They usually look like this — which is pretty spectacular, really:
But the canvas of a fresh pumpkin allows for significant room for creativity. With that context, enjoy some rock and roll-themed gourds that we’ve noticed on our internet travels over the years … creations from dedicated fans that just deserve attention.
The Fab Four deserve special pumpkin treatment, wouldn’t you agree?
The whole ethos of the Dead inspires creativity, and the band’s social media pages encourage it each Halloween season.

The King needs no flowery introduction. He’s the King. And he deserves top-notch jack-o-lanterning.
The mythology of Led Zeppelin is as robust as the band’s music — and so, too, is this jack-o-lantern.
Paul Stanely and Gene Simmons have cultivated an empire on their high-energy rock and roll and undeniable spirit. This pumpkin will make you want to go party.
