How much do you care about how a musician looks?

Do you prefer your musicians to be attractive and cool-looking?

In a lot of genres, like Rock, Pop, Electronic, etc. generally the musicians are in shape and moderately attractive. There are some exceptions (Adele), and the famous people aren't necessarily George Clooney, but they're not ugly, either. Metal is one of those genres where you guys listen to some ugly dudes.

I personally don't like admitting it, but I do care how my musicians look a little bit. I'd be disappointed if I heard a track by an artist I'd never heard of, and I loved the track, but the musician looked like this.

Voted UG's best Male dresser 2011.

It's not a reason to not listen to them but it's an added bonus if they're beautiful or look cool as hell doing their thing.

If it's a female they have to be smoking to compensate for their lack of talent, if it's a guy he just has to not look like a serial pedophile.

First sentence in OP is like asking if you prefer your food to look good, or look like shit.
It's weird because you have artists that look attractive (see: Katy Perry) ones that...well (see: Lemmy Kilmister) and then there's weird ones (see: David Bowie), so attractiveness isn't the only factor taken into account. Obviously I'll be a little disappointed if I can't fap to them, but I won't not listen to someone because his/her physical appearance doesn't appeal to me.

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

I don't listen to music because of what the artist looks like.

That would be like going to a Picasso gallery because you thought he was a good pianist.

I can't say I don't at all, but its definitely not the biggest reason I like bands by a long shot.

That said, I don't watch Lights videos on youtube just for the music.

Welcome! Now do yourself a favor and run away. Run as far away from gear forums as is humaly possible! If you follow this advice, you'll be able to tell your grandchildren about the guy who saved you from yourself.

I'm not sure if it matters, the Rolling Stones are a huge thing and they all looked like gargoyles

It does matter to me, but I find people 1000% sexier if I dig their music.

I don't think I've thought about this before
Also, I usually have no idea which men are handsome and which are ugly
I care about the music, they can have whatever clothing style or physical appearance they want
