7 Rock Star Lookalikes

Rockstars are a unique breed, but sometimes other folk have the good fortune to share a few similar genes to our rock gods.

Our friends at Ultimate Classic Rock scanned the internet for rock star lookalikes, and some were uncanny (and other were just hilarious). In this gallery we round up our favorites.

Take a look at our gallery of some of the best rockstar doppelgängers.

Russel Crowe and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder

The faces don't quite match, but the beard and mane are the same. Also, Vedder would make for a better Gladiator any day.

Andre 3000 and Jimi Hendrix

The rap star is playing the role of Hendrix in a new movie. Strangely, the movie producers didn't seek permission from the Hendrix family to use his music, but to avoid paying all those expensive licenses they're just re-recording all the tracks from fresh. Unbelievable! A Hendrix movie without his original music!

Harry Styles and Mick Jagger

It's a little scary how similar these two are. Of course, the One Direction singer will never ooze coo like the Rolling Stones frontman, but they certainly share a similar mop.

Kirk Hammet and Sky Blu

I've never heard of Sky Blue, but apparently he's part of some annoying dance act called LMFAO. Heard of them? Anyway, he might have a few more wires of facial hair than Hammet, but he'll never rock as hard.

Sammy Hagar and Chef Guy Fieri

These dudes are actually good friends, and often get mistaken for each other. When they're not off doing their jobs, they're probably hanging out in the back of a bar dipping their heads in bleach or something just as crazy.

Gene Simmons and Gaddafi

Alright, this is too funny. Gene Simmons really does look like the late dictator, even if the latter's face always looked like it was about to fall off.

Keith Richards and King Tut's Grandma

Richards has looked two steps from death for the better part of a decade now, but he's still hanging on in there - even if his face looks like a raisin.

    cant believe chad smith and will ferrell wasn't on that list
    Chad Smith wore a shirt with the phrase "I'm Not Will Ferrell" for a TV Late Night Show once. I think it was Letterman or Leno.
    I read somewhere that the two ran into each other at some function. When Ferrell saw Smith, he said something to the effect of: "you are one handsome guy".
    Will admit although I know who Chad Smith is, I didn't know what he looked like. I googled it and saw what you meant instantly. That's quite creepy...
    Stole the words out of my mouth. Everyone makes remarks at how they're nearly identical.
    Sammy Hagar and the muppet from the Mahna Mahna skit.
    Jimmy Page and Joe Biden (Vice President) !!!
    My favourites are Mustaine/spaniel and Hetfield/angry lion from "Wizard of Oz" movie
    What about chad smith and will ferrel?
    Veronique Vega
    They're the same guy, only one of them is from an alternate dimension. The most defining difference in the two guys are their preference between Coke and Pepsi... So I'm told.
    Actually, Keith Richards and Dobby from the Harry Potter movies are more of a match....
    How do you tell the difference between Gadaffi and Gene Simmons? One them is an egotistical dictator ignoring all criticism and living in a crazy, crazy bubble. The other was President of Libya.
    I enjoyed this, but still waiting for a 'The End Of The Week As We Know It' article to continue my Friday morning rituals.
    I disliked this article purely because it dared even joke that Eddie Vedder would have made a better gladiator! Ridiculous! I do love 'The End of the Week As We Know It' though
    The Red Hot Chili Peppers are (or were) a band full of look-alikes Anthony Kiedis - Iggy Pop Flea - Wayne Rooney John Frusciante - Jesus Christ Chad Smith - Will Ferrell
    Heath Ledger as "the Joker" and Eddie Van Halen.
    Brent Hinds and Chad Smith need to make a spoof of "The Campaign" Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell twins much??
    The guy who played Benny in City of God and Omar Rodriguez Lopez from The Mars Volta
    I watched that film thinking that it was surely just a spin-off of ORL's origin story. It had to be.
    Earl from My Name is Earl looks like Ronnie Vannucci Jr from The Killers
