Buckethead, one-time member of Guns n Roses, deserves mention on any list of the worst stage costumes:

The Big Suit that Byrne broke out in Stop Making Sense should also be up for consideration on the best list:

best: jimi hendrix, zz top (even tho i'm not a huge fan of their musak..., prince, jon fishman, david byrne's inflatable stop making heads suit,
worst: kiss, bono's red shades

i also loved lightning bolt's merry prankster getup at pitchfork this year:

Although arguably not just a stage costume The Wild Magnolias for the best, or Ziggy Stardust.

for the worst Insane Clown Posse.

With all due respect to the Beatles, I've never quite been a fan of the Sgt. Pepper's getup, and I must say that while The Band looked studly as hell at The Last Waltz, the opposite can be said for Bob Dylan, Dr. John, and Neil Diamond (though the latter should never have been there in the first place... When Robbie Robertson tried to cut Muddy Waters from the lineup to make room for Diamond, Levon Helm told the studio manager to tell Neil Diamond that "We don't even know who the fuck he is!" But I digress).
