Top 5 Rock and Roll Mustaches

A few weeks ago, we came up with the top 5 beards in rock. Now it's time for the mustache to fly solo. Admittedly, not as cool as a beard, the stache had its place in time. That time was the 70's and 80's. Like these kick ass stahes. Nowadays unless you are a cop, fireman, construction worker or Sam Elliot, the stache just does not fly. So let’s go back to that magical mustache era where you didn’t have to be a porn star to look cool with a stache.

The Matt Houston

The Lee Majors

The Magnum

Nowadays unless you are a cop, fireman, construction worker or Sam Elliot, the stache just does not fly. So let’s go back to that magical mustache era where you didn’t have to be a porn star to look cool with a stache.

 

5. Jimi Hendrix

Pencil thin, but powerful as hell, the voodoo child's stache was super cool, but only on Jimi. If any else tried this one, you'd like more pink pansy, than purple haze.

 

4. Carlos Santana

Whether it was psychedelic moon grooves, latino smoke or flat out hard rockin, Carlos stayed true to the mustache.

 

3. Duane Allman

The walrus is always an awesome look, but Duane added some southern fried bad ass to it.

 

2. Freddie Mercury

Not sure what was bigger Freddie’s mustache or his teeth, either way this bush, was as awesome as his music.

 

1. John Oates

John Oates mustache was so enormous, it needed its own zip code. This thing had a tour bus of its own. If there is one rocker that is synonymous with the stache, John Oates is it.
