Does this bother you?

I know this must seem weird and random,. but i was watching a music channel, and it just really caught my attention, personally i dislike band frontmen having beards. i want them all to look like Tom DeLonge.

I think Hayley Williams should shave that beard..... wait.... wat?
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

frontmen should have beards, as it makes them look tougher, and therefore makes them a better vocalist.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

No, why would it other me. It doesn't/shouldn't affect how they sound. If they like it, and it suits them, why the hell not?

Bravo, sir.

But I believe the correct term is "post-ironic beardcore".

Beards are pretty win.

Also, I can't take Tom Delonge seriously. I tried listening to Angels And Airwaves and actually caught myself thinking "this would be really nice for mainstream rock" and then all of a sudden Tom's vocals came on and I'm cringing. You just can't take a voice like his seriously...
Q: Favourite Pink Floyd song?

You guys are idiots. TS isn't going to think that a band sounds bad because they have a lead singer with a beard. He just won't enjoy their live performance as much, because the image won't be as satisfying to him. Which is a large part of why people like live shows, the visual aspect. Get your heads out of your asses.

EDIT: For me, I think the frontmen especially should look presentable for their genre. I hate beard for the most part anyway, because they just seem like another flaunting of masculinity.

I go to see my favorite bands perform the music live, not to go "OH, the frontman is looking particularly dashing this eve!" I figured this was the case for most people.
#16
yes exactly
whenever I see a frontman with a beard I just wanna slice that mother****er open with a steak knife...

Nope, I guess that (on this particular subject) the pit is (relatively) reasonable.
#19
I honestly don't care either way. They're musicians, I don't care if they have a beard or hair or eyebrows.

I'm a frontman, and I have a goatee!! I don't have a beard, and I'm nto clean-shaven. Your pathetic rules can't hold me down! :P

This, though I make an exception for Porcupine Tree, because, well, I'd bend over for Steven Wilson.

I think the exact opposite, really. I think a man without some type of facial hair looks like he's trying too hard to be a boy, and it's artificial-looking to me.

It's all about the moustache.

Lulz!

It really doesn't matter, yeah sure looks can be important and appealing but I listen to bands for their music, talent, lyrics.... Not because of how one of the members looks.

Where's the "It's the music, not the beard" option?

I mean sure, everyone knows that the resonance of a finely trimmed bit of facial hair gives you 20% more sustain and another octave to your range(Easy sweeps if guitar), but still.

Edit: Epic Hell Yeah to the gentlemen who posted Freddie Mercury and Billy Gibbons.

It grows on your face naturally. Therefore it is against nature to shave your beard. Get out of here you God-playing nonce!
