Ten Hottest Musicians with Mustaches Now

We're nearing the end of Movember--the month where men grow a mustache for the 30 days of November to raise awareness for prostate cancer--so we thought we'd do our bit by bringing you a list of the hottest musicians with mustaches.

A lot has been said about John Oates', Freddie Mercury's and Frank Zappa's facial hair, but what about today's mustache? We give you a list of the heirs of the modern-day, rockin' mustache--and feel free to add anyone we've missed in the comments below.

1. Taylor Rice, Local Natives

Who would've thought that a hipstache could actually look sexy, not chlumpy, while singing in lovely, soul-cradling harmonies?

2. Eugene Hutz, Gogol Bordello

It's obvious that this crazy handlebar mustache gets lots of lovin' and mustache wax to keep it touchy-twirly--the better to validate the punk-rock gypsy music Gogol Bordello plays!

3. Carlos D, formerly of Interpol

He may not be Interpol's bassist anymore, but he still rocks that face bristle as steadily as a bouncing low end.

4. Anthony Keidis, Red Hot Chili Peppers
It may not be his sexiest look, but what other facial patch has a group on Facebook advocating for its protection? 

Yup,  you too can join the Group for the Protection of Mr. Anthony Kiedis mustache right here.

5. MSTRKRFT

Not only do we admire this electronic duo's commitment to the 'stache, we admire their need to both wear facial hair so that they can't be identified as "the one with the mustache" and "the one without."

6. Dustin Apodaca, Dusty Rhodes and the River Band

Are they staying together? Are they breaking up? No matter--this Anaheim-based, Dusty Rhodes frontman's sweet-yet-sinister 'stache is the perfect accompaniment to their music, which can be innocently raucous and darkly joyous at the same time. Plus, how many wannabe politicians do you know can pull off a 'stache without looking like a serial killer? 

7. Jesse Hughes, Eagles of Death Metal

Only Jesse Hughes, co-founder of Eagles of Death Metal and all-around badass, is allowed to rock bushy facial hair unironically.

8. Tim Nordwind, OK Go

The fact that Nordwind, OK Go's bassist and vocalist, has the most memorable look in his band can be attributed to his small stature, his baldness and his facial hair, which reveal a striking contrast, whether they're dancing on treadmills or hanging out with farm animals.

9. Bill Kelliher, Mastodon

Maybe we're stretching the definition of "hot" here, but have you seen this guy play guitar? A gazillion extra hot points for shredders.

10. JD Samson, Men
Because it's hard enough to grow a mustache when you're biologially loaded with estrogen.
