The Grannies('00s-present)
What's more punk rock than a grandma? Well, unless granny is Vivienne Westwood, everything. But the heshers behind the Grannies match senior-citizen looks with adolescent jokes and straight-ahead riffage, their silver wigs banging in the wind as they chant the chorus to "My Middle Finger Says You're Wrong."

Mochipet ('00s-present)
Guitar-based music doesn't have the complete lock on costumes here. Daly City's Mochipet takes to the turntables from inside a giant furry purple dinosaur outfit. Sonically, the dude born David Wang gets as wild and woolly as his adopted skin, producing a masterful mix of dance music that pulls from glitch, dub, crunk, and hip-hop.
