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
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.
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

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
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.
