13 Hottest Guys in Metal

When it comes to list compilations of the "hottest" musicians in rock, there's no shortage by any means. In the heavy metal genre alone, you can Google endless lists detailing the sexiest guitarists, frontmen, drummers, bassists, keyboardists -- you name it.

But the majority of these lists are based completely on looks, and while there's nothing wrong with admiring long, sleek headbanging locks (circa '80s Axl Rose) or muscular, tattooed arms, the majority of the time I'm way more attracted to personality and talent then physical looks. So here's my list of the most talented, influential, charitable -- and yes, if you're nice to look at it's a plus -- guys in heavy metal.

Alice Cooper

Known as one of heavy metal's most beloved entertainers, Alice Cooper's career has spanned five decades. I mean, there's nothing hotter than being one of the most influential front men in heavy metal music -- especially when it's in as many ways as Cooper. He was the one who first introduced horror imagery into rock/metal, and evolved a stage show that transformed the genre's live shows. But besides being the godfather of shock rock, Cooper is a film actor ("We're not worthy!"), golfing celebrity, radio DJ, and avid philanthropist. He supports at least a dozen charities, from Save The Music Foundation to Artists for Peace and Justice, and founded Solid Rock, an organization that helps teens and children in the Phoenix area. Gotta love that: horror, heavy metal, and hands down the biggest heart.

Chuck Schuldiner, Death

It goes without saying that women are automatically attracted to powerful trailblazers -- and Chuck Schuldiner fits that bill... in a twisted, death-y sort of way. As the late guitarist of Death, widely regarded as the first original death metal band ever, Schuldiner brought a lot of ideas to the table on their 1987 debut, Scream Bloody Gore, that put death metal on the map. C'mon; when you're credited with paving the way for bands like Napalm Death and Cannibal Corpse, the word "trailblazer" doesn't even suffice. And I guess it doesn't because Schuldiner has been called the "father of death metal" more than a few times. And even though the band called it quits after Schuldiner died of brain cancer in 2001, Death's heavy metal will never disappear, nor will the dreaminess of Schuldiner's long, dark flowing locks.
