    Five Totally Original Music-Inspired Halloween Costumes

    Halloween costumes used to be about novelty and flexing your creative muscles.

    The 10 Lamest Bands of the '90s

    Talk to some people (we guess) and they'll tell you that '90s nostalgia is the only kind of nostalgia that matters.
