Even if it wasn't for the solar system of terrifying warts, or whatever those things are, he'd still make the list. As it stands, this Motorhead legend is one of the Patron Saints of Ugly. An automatic, as they say. Wonder if he ever worries about one of those flesh biscuits falling off into his soup?

Roland Orzabal

You have to admire a man who looks like Carrot Top's less-fortunate brother, is named both Roland and Orzabal, and is still successful. Apparently he conquered his fears. Maybe they should've been called Tears for Reflective Surfaces?

Joey Ramone

Average listal rating (43 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0

Hey, I admire him as much as anyone, but he was ugly. The man had no chin, not even a hint of one. It was just neck, then mouth. And it went downhill from there.

Mick Mars

Average listal rating (18 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0

A seemingly endless reservoir of hideous. Always looks like he's been dead since Wednesday, no matter what day it happens to be. His appearances (then and especially now) on the Motley Crue installment of Behind the Music made me want to call my parents and just chat.

Vinnie Vincent

Vinnie looks like a monkey in a Rick Springfield wig, under the influence of Space Shuttle G-Force.

David Crosby

Average listal rating (14 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0

Bald on top, pube curtains on the sides, a moustache that's almost certainly full of baloney sandwich crumbs, a penchant for hippie clothing, and a body like the Liberty Bell (the crack is where they installed the press-on liver). Nearly the complete package.

Ric Ocasek

Hey Ric, why the long face? Wonder how many times he's heard that one? The man looks like a wax figure in a hot room. Another member of the no chin club. I bet even John Kerry mocks him.

Mick Jones

Average listal rating (37 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0

Proof once again that a person can be both unsightly and cool as hell. A musical genius who got short-changed on his earthly container. A classic Euro-Ugly.

Iggy Pop

Average listal rating (224 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0

I know he's kind of old in this Shemp-Howard-on-a-bender pic, but even when he was a youngun Iggy could scare the varnish off a door. And I'm not talking about his ferociousness, either. Time to put a shirt on.

Perry Farrell

Just nostrils, tendons, and hair.

Steven Tyler

Average listal rating (180 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0

Apparently the victim of a catastrophic mouth-muscle collapse. Looks like he got drunk one night and tried to stretch his lips all the way around a steering wheel, and the shit never fully snapped back. I have actually seen worse pictures of him.

Obscure? Perhaps. But look at that picture and tell me he doesn't belong on this list. No seriously, take another look at it. I wish I had his nose full of dimes. And Fantastic Sam's should refund his $8.00 without delay.

Gene Simmons

Average listal rating (75 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 0

Gene looks like Epstein from Welcome Back Kotter after decades of Little Debbie abuse, wearing a leather jumpsuit, and making faces like he'd enjoy nothing more than a good bowel movement.
Add items to section

Bill Berry

Average listal rating (6 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 0

Probably wouldn't have made the list if he'd just gone down to Revco and spent 99 cents on a pair of tweezers. One of the richest and most magnificent monobrow pelts in the history of recorded music. There's more wild black hair above his eye sockets than in an entire issue of Penthouse from 1978.
Add items to section

Sonic Youth (Entire Band)

Average listal rating (210 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0

It's quite an accomplishment when every member of a band is ugly, but these guys (and gal) pull it off. It's all Ricks and Bun Es in Sonic Youth, without even a suggestion of Toms or Robins. You've got to admire that.

Shane MacGowan

Pasty, paunchy, perpetually drunk, and with a mouth like somebody stepped on a weak spot and fell through a porch. All hail the king!

In no paticular order

Ric Ocasek for how ugly he is has a really hot wife in Pavlina Porizkova and they have been married for a couple decades which is even more shocking
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Sep 2 23:22
Frank, you are right about the groups during the Glam-Rock era and the Hair Band scene that followed. New York Dolls was a pretty Hideous-looking group of guys in makeup and women's clothes. Also, Dee Snyder with Twisted Sister looked pretty gross in full make-up.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Sep 7 7:42
Udo Dirkschneider must be in this list too
Posted: 5 years, 12 months ago at Oct 23 3:31
Dee Snyder is pretty ugly even without the makeup. This list is great. I love it.

Young Geddy Lee was pretty ugly.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jun 21 14:31

Gene Simmons is not ugly, and the rest of the people in this list is to kill ... :p
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Feb 4 23:41
LMFAO at your comments! Love the list.

Meatloaf - fat, ugly - totally going against the grain of skinny pinup rockstar types
