Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?

You could easily go as Kurt Cobain (especially if you have hair that's a 'dirty' blonde colour, i.e. not true blonde). Just set yourself up with a pair of jeans, a loose tshirt, preferably something horizontally striped. If you're feeling controversial, grab a fake gun and keep it in your back pocket, and set yourself up with a 'suicide note' which you can have handy to flash at people now and again.

BUT! Maybe you'd prefer to go as a woman? In which case the easiest female to do would probably be Courtney Love - you just need some messy makeup and hair, and a slip dress.
A few other ideas of people you could go as (just do google searches to find out who they are, and pictures of what they would wear):

MEN
Sid Vicious
Johnny Rotten
Elvis Presley (I wouldn't say 'rockstar' so much, but ... a classic outfit. Someone else will probably be doing it, though.)
Kurt Cobain
Joe Strummer
Fat Mike
Ozzy Osbourne
Jack White

WOMEN
Blondie
Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

BUT! (again!) if you don't want to go as a certain person, just set yourself up with some of these things to look somewhat 'rockstar'-esque:

/classic rockstar/
black leather jacket
leather cutoff gloves
studded belt
black leather boots

/punk/
tartan trousers
moth-eaten jumper
studded belt
doc martens
insane hair
union jack themed items, esp. shirts

Before I start a riot, anybody else reading my post would please kindly note that I am making generalisations about what the punk style is purely for costume purposes, not because I believe that to be a true 'punk' you must wear these things. I know punk started out with the music, so nobody slate me for what I've put here, please and thankyou.

go find a pink slip.

paint loads of words and symbols on it in white and black.

paint the eye makeup on thick. try pink shadow and then put eyeliner on. make sure it all kinda has a neon feel.

throw on a pair of boots and flash a dirty look at everyone who comes by.
