Hairy People: 15 Best Beards in Rock
Separating the scruffiest rockers from the scruffy ones, beards tend to be one of those crucial esthetic factors for many renowned rock/metal musicians out there. So for this week, we'll delve into the matter of best beards in rock, check out the stuff we got below.

Lemmy Kilmister

Not the longest beard, but certainly striking, Lemmy's friendly mutton chops get to kick off the list.

Kirk Windstein

There's just something about Kirk Windstein's beard that makes him 10 times more bada-s, right?

Claudio Sanchez

Coheed and Cambria frontman is all about hair, beard included.

Zakk Wylde

Sharing some beard tips, Zakk once shared the secret to his fine hair: "Dried up p-ssy juice from eatin' my wife out."

Neil Fallon

Bringing some musical diversity to the list, here's Mr. Neil Fallon of Clutch!

Frank Zappa

Did you really think we'd miss a chance to bring up Frank's goatee here?

Chris Adler

Bringing in the heavy guns comes Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler.

Wayne Static

Static-X frontman probably has the most unique hair/beard mixture in the rock world, would you agree?

Johan Hegg

Epitomizing bada-sery, Amon Amarth singer just wouldn't be the same without that wild beard.

Shavo Odadjian

Representing SOAD, bassist Shavo Odadjian has grown quite a ponytail beard there.

Dimebag Darrell

We've reached the bearded greats now, starting off with late Dimebag Darrell. Wouldn't be same if it wasn't pink.

The secret behind Rick Rubin's production wizardry? His beard, of course.

    We all know that Kerry King is going to come on here and say something about his beard...
    actually he doesn't really seem to comment on articles about him or slayer, just taking the piss at the other articles
    Here is my additional list of musicians with epic beards: - William Fitzsimmons - Steve Von Till and Scott Kelly (Neurosis) - Brent Hinds, Troy Sanders and Bill Kelliher (Mastodon) - Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) - Andy Williams (Every Time I Die) - Tim Millar (Protest The Hero) - Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) - Sky White (Foxy Shazam) - Justin Foley (Killswitch Engage) - Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio) - Seasick Steve
    Toni Immoi - Black Sabbath? James Hetfield - Metallica? Bill kelliher & Troy sanders - Mastodon?
    Tony Iommi's more recognised for his tash than his beard. Also, before you say "What about Lemmy?" Lemmy's facial hairstyle is technically a beard since it covers the face as opposed to just the upper lip.
    Marco Hietala (Nightwish) ZZ Top James Hetfield's goatee is perfect Zakk Wylde Tom Araya Jouni Hynynen (google it. He's the singer of a crappy finnish metal band called Kotiteollisuus)
    yes i agree those fins here. wonder why they're not mentioned on any list
    -Portnoy's blue beard -Jordan Rudess' wizardly beard -Also if the drummer of Mastodon gets a beard, the whole band would be a honorable mention
    Definitely missing Marco Hietala from Nightwish, that beard is legendary.
    Mr Winters
    Shit, I thought "what the f­uck, Rob Flynn went blonde? when I saw that pic of Wylde.
    Interesting fact, the only memeber of ZZ Top without a beard is the drummer, who is called Frank Beard.
    Hetfield 88-92ish also jordan rudess looks like exactly what a wizard should be
