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.

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 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.

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

Wat

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

It doesn't affect how much I like the band, but if I see a picture of a band I haven't listened to, I can usually make an educated guess on what they might sound like.

Not really.
When you listen to prog rock, you don't have much of a choice in good-looking musicians.

Also, I hate bands that seem to have alot of their fame based on sex appeal. Just not my scene.

Adele just needs to lose some weight, she's got nice cheekbones.

It doesn't matter to me much, I've got artists in my library who I don't even know what they look like.

i do and don't.

i don't like people that look like they're trying way too hard to have an image, but on the other hand i totally like bands who are blatantly going for an image with costumes and stuff. (Devo etc.)

I don't like going to live music, so I don't ever have to see them anyway. If they made awesome music but looked like terrible scene youngsters, I might question their taste in fashion, but that would be completely separate from my enjoyment of the music.

Like I said, I'm not saying you care if the musicians look as handsome as George Clooney, but would it bother you guys if your favorite musicians looked liked the pick in OP?

Nope. They could be a walking potato and I wouldn't really care.

I'd bang Adele


God help you if you did. You'd probably have 2 or 3 albums written about you.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

I've listened to bands where they all look like the OP pic. Who gives a monkeys banana hammock? If it sounds good I like it. I also listen to a little bit of '-core' bands these days and half of them look like complete tools.
