Kerrang! 50 Sexiest People in Rock

Sort by: Showing 46 items
Rating: List Type:
Average listal rating (932 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
Billie Joe Armstrong



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

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).

What? You must be joking. He resembles a tubby-faced middle-aged mother if you squint.

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.

Ville Valo



I have no real opinion on this one. Nothing really stands out for me.

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

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

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

A deserving entry on the list in my opinion.

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

Melissa Auf Der Maur



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

The surnames a little offputting... but a definite yes.

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.

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.

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

Legend, but not too hot, but alright I suppose. Maybe a while back.

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.

Oh. Heavens. Yes. This would be my personal number one on this list. Shirley Manson is a goddess.

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.

Time has not done this one well... But, again, back in the day, maybe.

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

Slash



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

Dani Filth



Ehh.... Maybe.

Again, wouldn't call him sexy.

Both not bad choices. Hard to find singular images though.

Pandora, Kerrang!'s mascot and cartoon character, not the band.




A cartoon character, but a fun choice nonetheless.

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.)

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

Josh Homme



Urgh. Nah.

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

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.

Err, maybe an older choice.

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

Rate:

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.
