It’s two days before All Hallows’ Eve, which means the music section of the Internet is soon to be filled with instructive blog posts telling you how to transform yourself into Azealia Banks and PSY for your hipster Halloween party. But stop the presses, folks: One of SPIN’s Greatest Guitarists of All Time has dressed up like… another one of SPIN’s Greatest Guitarists of All Time (with a brilliant twist!). Behold Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner (No. 89) as he transforms into the Kurt Cobain (No. 4)/Bane hybrid, Kurt CoBane! The photo originated on Aziz Ansari’s Twitter, which also featured the inspired tweet, “You merely adopted the flannel. I was born it.” #KurtCoBANE, you have saved Halloween.
