52 // Jeffree Starr
This Myspace maven used to do the Warped circuit, living out of a van and performing on side stages. Now he's upgraded to the BMW life, selling liquid lipsticks and frosty highlights to vastly larger lines than anyone else this summer. But Star's beauty horizons go far beyond Warped—and he's here to stay.

As a former Mormon missionary, Microwave's Nathan Hardy can cheerily say he's moved up and on from his past life. Now, he's making gritty pop punk anyone can fall in love with.

70 // Sum 41
Deryck Whibley has been through a lot this year. After a life-threatening stint in the hospital, he's ready to unleash new Sum music-and a new perspective-onto the world.
