Average listal rating (913 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
1. Green Day
Billie Joe Armstrong



No way should he be #1. Especially not after the look change of the band. Sexy? No. Just, no.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (58 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
2. The Distillers
Brody Dalle



She has a look, but its not always what I'd call sexy. And with a voice like the lung of a 50-year smoker put through a chesse-grater (not that that doesn't go with her punk image/style), I'd drop her down the list quite a bit... But it does depend what image you see of her (like above).
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (420 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
3. My Chemical Romance
Gerard Way



What? You must be joking. He resembles a tubby-faced middle-aged mother if you squint.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (663 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
4. Evanescence
Amy Lee



I can't lie, she's good looking and has a good voice. But probably not this high on my list, and a general dislike for the band puts me off.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (161 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
5. HIM
Ville Valo



I have no real opinion on this one. Nothing really stands out for me.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (55 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
6. Lostprophets
Ian Watkins



No. Goddamn emos... I tend to want to punch people sporting that kind of haircut rather than jump on them.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (963 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
7. Nirvana
Kurt Cobain



Ahhh, a legend. But sexy? Sure, why not. Here's where you learn about proper melancholia, kids.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (61 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating
8. The Darkness
Dan Hawkins



No thank you.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (13 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
9. Bleeding Through
Marta



Now thats more like it. I'd put her higher on the list than Amy Lee and Brody for sure.

Average listal rating (258 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
10. Nightwish
Tarja Turunen



A deserving entry on the list in my opinion.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (45 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
11. Machine Head
Robb Flynn



Not sure about this one. Personally I think its just an entry to keep the metal fans happy, but he's not too bad.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (39 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
12. Melissa Auf Der Maur
Melissa Auf Der Maur



Approved. But only my second favourite redhead on the list. ;)

Average listal rating (113 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
13. Lacuna Coil
Cristina Scabbia



The surnames a little offputting... but a definite yes.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (222 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating
14. Slipknot
Joey Jordison



I hope my picture illustrates the "do not want" aspects of my opinion. He jsut looks like a moody teen/dog. (Maybe its the lack of eyebrows.)

42. Corey Taylor



What? This one isn't much better than his bandmate... There are reasons these guys wear masks, you know.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (347 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating
15. Blink-182
Tom Delonge



Personally I'd have to say no. Within the band Mark Hoppus looks better in my opinion, and outwith the band there are plenty of better male candidates.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (590 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
16. Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani



Yes, but back in the day. Not so much now, but she does have a more gamorous look than in the past few years.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (798 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
17. Red Hot Chili Peppers
Anthony Kiedis



Legend, but not too hot, but alright I suppose. Maybe a while back.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (1011 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
18. Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne



NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO way in hell. I have no idea how this ranked higher than Shirley Manson. *rages* Smiles in a grimace and generally not hot.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (271 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
19. Incubus
Brandon Boyd



Not bad, but a bit on the average side.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (362 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
20. Garbage
Shirley Manson



Oh. Heavens. Yes. This would be my personal number one on this list. Shirley Manson is a goddess.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (599 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
21. Foo Fighters
Dave Grohl



When he was younger I think he was a worthy member of the list, but as with many other rockers, I don't think time has been on his side.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (238 ratings) 4.7  IMDB Rating
22. Courtney Love
Courtney Love



Time has not done this one well... But, again, back in the day, maybe.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
23. Queenadreena
Kate Jane Garside



Not bad looking, but not someone I consider very sexy. May just be a stage thing...

Average listal rating (57 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
24. Velvet Revolver
Slash



Blerg. Slash is not sexy. He is a good guitarist and stage presence, but in no way do I find him sexy.

Average listal rating (98 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
25. Cradle of Filth
Dani Filth



Ehh.... Maybe.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (93 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
26. The Used
Bert McCracken



Again, wouldn't call him sexy.

Average listal rating (44 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
27. The Donnas
Brett Anderson



46. Allison Robertson



Both not bad choices. Hard to find singular images though.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (691 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
28. Muse
Matt Bellamy



Should probably be high on the list, at least better than some of the ones listed higher than him.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (68 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
29. Arch Enemy
Angela Gossow



Definately one of the best looking women in metal.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (44 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
30. Ash
Charlotte Hatherley



Good choice.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (1 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating
31. Pandora
Pandora, Kerrang!'s mascot and cartoon character, not the band.




A cartoon character, but a fun choice nonetheless.

Average listal rating (715 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating
32. Marilyn Manson
Marilyn Manson



When you hear the word "sexy", do you even come close to thinking of Marilyn Manson? No. (Well, there is his ex, but not himself.)
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (61 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating
33. The Rasmus
Lauri Ylonen



Meh, so-so.

Average listal rating (290 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating
34. Good Charlotte
Benji Madden



47. Joel Madden



They're frickin' twins! They don't look that different! Anyway, meh, nope.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (551 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
35. The White Stripes
Meg White



Not bad, quite a good, yet interesting, choice.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (208 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
36. Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Karen O



I would not consider Karen O sexy, but each to their own...

Average listal rating (254 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
37. Queens of the Stone Age
Josh Homme



Urgh. Nah.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (217 ratings) 4.4  IMDB Rating
38. Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne



No. I would not consider her, but thats probably because every time she opens her mouth she sounds like a plonker.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (406 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
39. Placebo
Brian Molko



Not conventionally sexy, but an ok choice. Retrospectively, I want to know why he's not further up the list. Nowadays the scrawny look is in, and though I don't usually like the trendy kind of thing, I do like his androgynous style.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (766 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
40. Metallica
James Hetfield



Err, maybe an older choice.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (1 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating
41. Million Dead
43. Julia Ruzicka



Not sexy. At this point I think they were trying to shake out any female musicians that they could think of.


Average listal rating (139 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
42. Papa Roach
44. Jocoby Shaddix

tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (186 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
43. Audioslave
45. Chris Cornell



Alright.
tartan_skirt's rating:

Average listal rating (23 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
44. Juliette and the Licks
48. Julliette Lewis




Average listal rating (75 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating
45. Stereophonics
49. Kelly Jones


Average listal rating (109 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
46. Bullet For My Valentine
50. Matt Tuck



 

From Arpril 2005, this is who Kerrang! magazine called the 50 Sexiest People in Rock. Personally I have a lot to argue against, but there are some on there I do agree with, and some I think should have ranked higher. *cough*Shirley Manson*cough*

I've added my personal notes throughout because some things need to be said.

Couple of notes:

*Number 41. Valeria - missing because she's not a musician, but a model who appears at Kerrang! events and such.

*Some bands occur twice, and the list is numbered when this causes a problem.

Conclusions drawn:

Appeal to the masses is placed under too much importance. Some of these people should never be considered sexy. As the list neared the end it looks like they were just clutching at straws, especially with females. Ah well, happens with most popular music publications I suppose.

Joel Madden needs a new image however!
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Jun 10 15:47
Chris Cornell, Greenday and Ville are so hot...yet I would've added Pete Wentz from FOB and Jared Leto from 30STM too...
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Sep 23 19:00
Im actually offended that Matt bellamy isnt in the top 3 and that Alex kapranos (franz ferdinand) isnt on there at all!

=(

This Kerrang list is very crappy indeed...
but you are getting my vote, for the comments ;)
"I tend to want to punch people sporting that kind of haircut rather than jump on them" agreed!
And Natália is completely right! That makes no sense at all.. I don't really find him any bit handsome nowadays, but man he definitely was sexy ("back in the day")
I'm glad to see Chris Cornell there :)

Ville valo should have been the sexiest guy

Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Jun 14 22:19
how can SCOTT WEILAND be omitted :) for Christ' sake, his sexiness is so obvious
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Jun 26 18:34
among 50, i agree with 11. and for christ's sake, gerard way must have payed to kerrang to enter in this list.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Sep 2 13:54

Simone Simons clearly is number 1, noone else stands a chance
Posted: 4 years ago at Nov 25 18:03
