The Ten Hottest British Rockers

Women's taste in men vary. [Sorry gentlemen, there doesn't seem to be a formula]. Some like guys with rock hard abs and huge muscles. Others, myself included, prefer skinny guys with slender hips and no muscles to speak of. Some like facial hair, other want their guys clean cut.

But I think most women can agree that British accents are sexy, and so are rock stars

And British rock stars? The sexiest of them all.

From post-punk to Britpop to the British Invasion to punk rock- here's my list of the ten hottest British rock stars around. 

10. Gaz Coombes [Supergrass]

Gaz should be crowned king of facial hair. His sideburns are rivaled only by General Burnside himself [although, Burnside only managed to look creepy]. Show me a picture of someone with better sideburns and I'll, well, show you more pictures of Gaz. Because while he may be a bit strange looking- one always wins points for being able to grow an obnoxiously amazing pair of sideburns. 

9. David Bowie

David Bowie exudes cool with his every step. Whether Ziggy Stardust, or the Thin White Duke, his utter coolness is nearly tangible. Who else on the planet could pull of those Ziggy Stardust outfits, or make a painted on lighting bolt look cool. No wonder he's married to a supermodel!

8. George Harrison [the Beatles]

How can any list about British rockers neglect mentioning the Beatles? Everyone has their own Beatles preference, but mine has always been George. He’s got fantastic cheekbones, brilliant eyebrows, he rocks the dapper suit and tie look- and he can make girls scream and cry just at the sight of him. 

7. Johnny Rotten [Sex Pistols]

And here's one for the Anarchists and the punks. Johnny Rotten- the man who screeches "Anarchy for the UK!" is actually a good looking fellow. He's got the spiky red hair, sloppily tied tie and the devil-may-care attitude. This disaffected punk look is quite becoming, because every girl loves a bad boy.

6. Ian McCulloch [Echo and the Bunnymen]

Now how can you not love a man with hair like that? The brooding post-punk aura he gives off is only a plus. And when he’s standing on stage wearing his trademark dark sunglasses and lighting up a cigarette while a fog machine cranks up behind him- well, you’ll fall in love. [and he has Lips Like Sugar am i right?]

5. Morrissey [the Smiths]



The Mozzer may be a bit of a diva and he may say outrageous things, but the man is very attractive. He prances around with that lovely head of hair, he wears an over the top hearing aid as a fashion statement and he often has his shirt off or flowers in his back pocket [often both]. While he may refuse to make music videos, roll his eyes on Top of the Pops and chastise you for eating meat- you’ll swoon when he sings “If a double decker bus crashes into us/to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die”

4. Thom Yorke [Radiohead]

Now, what’s this weird, wonky-eyed bloke doing on this list, huh? Well, I think he the hottest thing on the planet, and if it were up to me, he’d be number one. [well yes, technically it is up to me- but you know, I’m trying to do objective reporting here!] Thom may be a bit of a weirdo [or creep, should I say?] but he’s certainly got something. Maybe the early Pablo Honey blonde phase was nightmarish, but during the In Rainbows era he had the stubble, the bushy hair and the cute, shy rockstar aurora. With songs that complex, you’d think the man has to be as well- and girls love a complex man. Yes?

3. Brett Anderson [Suede]

Say what you will, but androgyny is quite sexy. And when long haired, brilliant cheek-bone’d Brett Anderson saunters onto the scene wearing a too small leather jacket that accents his slight frame- well, you’ll agree it’s very sexy. 

2. Jarvis Cocker [Pulp]

The British music press can’t seem to describe this guy without prefacing it with “Sex God”. And while they might not be right about Gene album reviews [they aren’t just a Smiths ripoff, Select!] they are pretty damn right about this. He carries his raw sexuality with a swagger, always looking eccentrically fashionable- like a bloke who can’t quite remember which decade he lives in. The guy dresses like he raided a time travelers thrift store! He has a teeny tiny waist and skinny legs he shows off in velvet pants. In the music video Babies, he even wears a suit coat without a shirt underneath. Quite attractive, yes?

1. Damon Albarn [blur]

Ah and look at this, not only is blur number one of my top ten Britpop bands list, blur's front man is my hottest British rocker. And can you blame me? Of course you can’t. Damon is hot to the point where it’s almost unsettling. He has that cheeky pretty boy look going for him, but he has a devilish glint in his eyes. He may be the kind of boy that cleans up nice, the kind you can take home to your mother, but he's not as innocent as he seems.

Here’s one last pictures, ladies. You can thank me later.

Damon Albarn- quite the hottie, eh?
