INDIO, CA - APRIL 10: Musician Brian Johnson of AC/DC performs onstage during day 1 of the 2015 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (Weekend 1) at the Empire Polo Club on April 10, 2015 in Indio, California.

Halloween will be here before you know it, and for those of you without a costume yet, fear not!  Help is here!

In the lead up to everyone’s favorite spooky holiday,  we’ll be posting various rock star costume ideas for those in need of some ideas for upcoming Halloween gatherings, and what better place to start than with Brian Johnson, who celebrates his birthday today (October 5.)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Black t-shirt or tank top
  • Jeans (Belt with subtle buckle optional)
  • Newsboy hat. (We’re particularly fond of this one over at Amazon.)
  • Microphone prop. (Optional.)

 To complete the look, have a friend dress up as Angus Young, and you’ll be a hit!
