They are known for their 80s stage gimmicks, wild untamed hairstyles, and tasty riffs. But their wildest member is their lead guitarist Russ “The Satchel” Parish. This man is a pure burst of positive energy and talent swaying off the feet metal heads in every city. Their gigs always get packed with girls running to the stage.

Being considered the most commercially successful artist in the early 80s who invented a different approach to playing guitar made him nothing less than a legend. He was always the favorite among the ladies which had its ups and downs. Downs like, he got divorced for infidelity. At that level of popularity and attractiveness, it surely is a Herculean task to say no and be true to yourself. Nevertheless, Eddie is truly a gem whose music will still be listened to for decades to come and will have a special place in the hearts of ladies from the 80s.
6. David Lee Roth
Musicians may be cool, but they will never be as cool as the flamboyant frontman of Van Halen, David Lee Roth. Known for his wild energetic personality, the extremely handsome David used to be the symbol of an entire generation. Along with his former bandmate Eddie, two of them set ablaze every stage and every female heart with each performance. All girls wanted to be with them and all of the guys wanted to be them.

Infamous for their abundance of beautiful models, often referred to as Roth Angels, top A list entertainers, and crazy outrageous activities such as car demolitions and such. Time may be passing but David Lee Roth to this day looks gorgeous and parties like there is no tomorrow!
7. Matt Sanders
It took a short amount of time for fantastic metal band like Avenged Sevenfold to climb the ranks and prove their worth, gaining the ever-growing fan base that adores them. Standing on the front lines is the dashing, handsome singer Matt Sanders aka M. Shadows gaining popularity with his powerful raspy voice and smoking hot looks. Taking the stage in tank tops and sunglasses with his big tattooed arms and ability to perform their metal ballades provides a certain impact among the female part of the audience! However, he truly is a sweetheart who considers his family the pride and joy of his life. Even though married, he still remains a longing wish of many metal girls.
8. Tommy Lee
You know that saying that the band is only as good as the drummer is? Well, considering how Motley Crew is arguably the wildest metal band ever, the apex is reserved for the charismatic and controversial Tommy Lee. Throughout difficult childhood to adulthood, drums were the main weapons he wanted in his arsenal, and he stopped at nothing to perfect them… That was until the girls started to swarm him all over the place. He just knew how to approach them with his charismatic bad-boy attitude. Dammit, he even married the hottest woman in the world in the 90s, Pamela Anderson. That alone proves that he was just irresistible to fairer sex despite his wild nature. From extravagant drum solos to crazy private life occurrences this man keeps attracting the hottest women in the world and that’s a fact.
9. James Hetfield
As the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and co-founder of one of the most successful heavy metal bands in the world it is pretty self-explanatory. Decades of tours, concerts, and partying well into his 60’s and this guy still looks smoking hot! With his big tatted arm and cheeky smile, you can put that big wild hair he had when he was younger and you just know that he’s leaving the gig with an entourage. Through the years he achieved more than most of us can ever dream of, usually cited as the influence and inspiration of many artists and metal bands. Putting all of that into perspective, with his gorgeous looks puts him, deserved, in the first place.
10. Zack Wylde
Nothing makes metal ladies scream in excitement like a 6ft4 muscular bearded Hell’s Angel that is Zack Wylde. This former Black Sabbath guitarist was even prettier in his youth. Back then he didn’t have that signature beard and you would think that made it a bit worse, but it’s quite the opposite. Zack is quite the looker rocking that black leather outfit and making guitar do his will probably made his life filled with gorgeous women. He is known for his signature bulls-eye design guitar, which is widely recognized throughout the music world. His close friend Ozzy Osbourne considers him one of the best guitarists in the world which is no small statement. His contribution to rock and metal have been manifold, and surely deserves more recognition.
11. Corey Taylor
So we all know Slipknot always puts on a show with their masks that accompany their songs every step of the way. Through the years they use them to display their personalities as they mash on the stage. I had no idea what some of them looked like beneath those masks for quite some time and then I discovered. Corey Taylor is what a peek male form looks like! The Boogie Knight, the Plankhead, the gorgeous wild beast! This 6ft 4 mountain of a man, with his massive arms and powerful voice, surely stirs the hearts of many with just his presence.
Even when he was young, rocking that long messy hairstyle with his unique personality surely made him stand out. What makes him impressive is his creative nature. He doesn’t shy away from all kinds of projects to satisfy his creativity. He acted in movies, wrote memoirs, and is a massive Elvis fan! Truly a different kind of man whose energy attracts other people and makes him enchanting. That’s why he is a close second right behind his Metallica colleague.
12. Richard Kruspe
Possibly the most handsome member of Rammstein is their lead guitarist Richard Kruspe. With his broad shoulders and chest, he is a portrait of masculinity. His forehead and brow ridge protrude in a way that you can’t always see his eyes. Richard is most memorable as being a man of many haircuts. All kinds of spikes, long and short, dyed in different colors as he shreds his guitar away. Nowadays he keeps his hair dyed black which accentuates his pale skin looking like the true goth that he is! There is no doubt that he belongs on the list of the most handsome metal musicians.
13. Bruce Dickinson
As the pioneers of the British heavy metal scene, the Iron Maiden reached huge success through the 80s. Not only are they the most commercially successful metal band in the world but back in the day they were defining looks on stage. Good-looking musicians with long hair and leather jackets, that was the dream. Bruce Dickinson captured everyone’s attention, not only with his long hair and real muscular man looks, but with his multi-talented personality. Highly intelligent and charismatic man who never shied away from diversifying his life. One of the achievements he is especially proud of is that he became a commercial pilot and flew their airplane Edd Force One to every distant destination!
14. Phil Anselmo
Philip Hansen Anselmo is considered the most badass, intimidating, and wild musician who has graced the stages around the world. With his on-stage animated demeanour and wild macho attitude, he has proven that he is the true physical embodiment of metal. Only he is capable of front-lining for a thundering metal band like Pantera, where you can find him shirtless on stage demonstrating his tattooed muscular physique with huge arms gripping the microphone as he sings with his full head voice.
