Top 10 Sexiest Rock Stars of All Time

Updated on January 11, 2012

Let's face it... singing is the one profession where you don't have to be even remotely good looking to get chicks. Having said that, the men in this list just so happen to be blessed with both angelic voices and sex appeal.

Now, let me clarify that "sex appeal" doesn't necessarily mean traditionally good looking per se (although some certainly are), but more so, they possess a certain air of sexuality that makes them desirable to the opposite sex.

I attempted to compile this list in chronological order by decade, so we'll start with the 60's first...

1. Jim Morrison

There's something about Jim Morrison that just eludes danger. He's the epitome of the rock and roll bad boy - the guy you're parents hated, which made you love him even more. Danger = forbidden. Forbidden = SEXY.

2. Steven Tyler

Moving onto the 70's is one of my favorites... Mr. Steven Tyler. Yeah yeah, I know... many people think he resembles an old woman... his mouth is too big... yada yada. I happen to think he's one of the sexiest rock stars ever. You have to admit... the man has style. And confidence. And some serious moves. To be able to do a backflip in your 60's is pretty bad-ass.

3. Jon Bon Jovi

Ladies and gents, we have now arrived in the '80's. And although the 80's was a decade of slim pickins when it came to sexy rock stars (as I wouldn't exactly define hair metal as sexy), there was one diamond in the rough: Jon Bon Jovi. Those eyes... that face... that voice... yes, please.

4. Kurt Cobain

Onto the glorious, yet painful decade of the 90's, is Kurt Cobain. It pains my heart every time I look at that sad, angelic face. He is undoubtedly the most beautiful man I've ever laid eyes on.

5. Chris Cornell

Believe me, if I were going in order of rock star hotness (as opposed to chronological order), Chris Cornell would've been #1. Ask any woman who she thinks is the hottest rock star, and at least 90% will respond, "Chris Cornell."

6. Dave Navarro

Yeah, so technically he's not a singer, but hey,guitarists need love too. And I would give that love to Dave Navarro. All of it. Eat your heart out, Carmen Electra.

7. Jared Leto

Who would've thought Jordan Catalano would've become a rock star? Not me. But mmm... I'll take it.

8. Jeff Buckley

Another beautiful rock star who was taken from us too soon. Unfortunately, there's still a lot of people out there who are unaware of Jeff Buckley's existence. He could dominate this list simply from the soft, soothing sex appeal of his voice, nevermind the fact that he had the looks to match.

9. Jakob Dylan

Personally, I think his music sucks, but my God, Jakob Dylan is like walking sex. Look at those baby blues. I have no words.

10. Brandon Boyd

And as we move into the 2000s, I'll close out this list with Incubus front man, Brandon Boyd. There's not really much to say about Brandon except that he always has his shirt off, and it's always awesome.

Honorable Mentions:


Joey Barnes...

Joey Barnes...

aaanndd... Joey Barnes!

Now, I realize that most of you have absolutely no clue who this guy is... but just so you know, he's the drummer for Daughtry. And the most impeccably gorgeous man ever. I just want to frame that little face and hang it on my mantle. I stalk the hell out of this guy on his MySpace page and I don't even feel bad about it.

      Morrison is absolutely amazing in so many ways. Be it sex appeal, danger, pain, enlightenment or a leader into the depths of the mind. I think in some way Jim had a way of taking us to the afterlife and everywhere in between.

      1,2,3,4 and 6 YES right on the money. But I never heard of all the others. Here are two honorable mentions, if I may: Robbin Crosby of RATT, and Nicki Sixx of MOTLEY CRU.

      Chris Cornell really???? I have never heard a girl say he's hot. Now I would have Adam Levine's child! Bonjovi is hot now (as your pic shows) but in the 80's he had the biggest girlie hair of all yuck. I have commented many times that Dave Navaro is the ugliest man I've ever seen. Such a disproportionate head. Please put Tommy lee from the 90's on that list (before the Hep C) so freakin' hot and where is my hottie Eddie Vedder talk about beautiful!

      That's awesome,... I hope to see it someday myself. I was thinking, another incredibly charismatic rock star was Elvis, with that bad-boy sneer of his. Although, technically, he was a rock and roll star. I so enjoyed this, by the way. :)

      Thank you! Love love love Jim Morrison. I actually saw his grave at Pere Lachaise in Paris last year and took a photo of it, I'll treasure it always! :)

      Okay, I've read it, and I'm officially in a very, very happy state of mind. Total halcyon fit. :)

      I agree with all of these, but another honorable mention might be Tyson Ritter, frontman of the All-American Rejects. Not sure if you could count him as a rock star, but he is Gor-geous, although at times a wee bit skinny. Biggest blue eyes ever :) Tee-hee. Thank you for a good bit of enjoyment :) voted up, awesome, and beautiful. Because, by golly, these men are beautiful. LOL.

      I'm set to read this later (thank God for bookmarks), but just by the first picture I can say that, definitely, Jim Morrison was the most beautiful man (rock star or not) ever to have existed, hands down! :) ...

      He was an American Adonis. R.I.P. Jim : '(

      I thought of Adam Levine! But yeah, more of a pop star. He's ridiculously hot.

      Awesome.. this is a great, hot list! My personal favorite on this list is # 6- Dave Navarro! I wish he would get back in the public eye. Voted up!

      Is Adam Levine more of a pop star than a rock star? Cool list btw.

      Yeah I went in chronological order so the first few won't be from our generation lol

      I thought maybe I was a little different, generation speaking, when I saw the first few on your list. Then you mentioned Jared Leto...YES! I love his music and his acting...he does not get the credit he deserves.

      I agree with Brandon Boyd, and Jeff Buckley. I'd also like to add Billy Idol (when he was younger.) Eh,the guy from Daughtry does nothing for me.
