Top 10 Sexiest Men of the 80s and 90s

The Top Ten
1 Marti Pellow

Quite possibly the most handsome male ever born. As producer Willy Mitchell noted, he has one of the best voices of the century. This man can sing! Additionally, he is a performer, songwriter, musical theatre, and panto actor. He has the goods to match his exceedingly good looks. He is clever, witty, and has a hilarious sense of humor. Oh, and let's not forget to throw in his very sexy Scottish accent.

Even now in his 50s, he has a hunky physique and is still the sexiest man around. He is so talented, with the best voice of all, so much charisma, and so enigmatic. Great performer. Marti Pellow has it all in spades.

There was a reason why the band was called Wet Wet Wet. Fancied the arse off him.

Stated as a sex symbol by Wikipedia, sexy dance moves, perfectly lean body, sensual personality, talented and a true gentleman. What more do women love?

Michael was the sexiest, cutest, and hottest man alive. How could you not agree with me? Just look at his smile!

No one has ever, and will ever, be as sexy as him. He is literally perfect and everything about him is amazing.

He is handsome and has a sexy hair metal haircut which kickstarts lots of girls, girls, girls' hearts on his music that includes six, drugs, and rock n roll. Also, he is a bad boy boogie or bad ass guy who kicks a lot of ass on the wild side.

He is the Dr. Feelgood who makes people feel all right. He is the only bass player who has the male beauty and the guts to write lyrics on his songs and bring some of the greatest songs ever since he was with Mötley and then with Sixx:A.M. without slowing down because it's all in the name of rock n roll.

In my opinion, the sexiest man on the planet! Not only to look at, but he is bursting with passion from within too. His lips and that cute sexy smile he delivers straight down the camera - I've been lucky enough to have him look straight down my camera and oh, I'll never forget that. His eyes are beautiful and every line on his face is not old, just older, and he is certainly aging with grace.

Favourite sex appeal music video has to be Miracle. This guy is absolutely beautiful to the core. I have named him God in the form of Man - perfection!

This man knows how to be sexy. He can sing with that amazing husky, sexy voice while those pretty blue eyes look deep at the camera and his hair moves with the wind. It just takes our breath away.

He's the hottest guy on this list. Are you kidding me? He should be number one. If you think he doesn't deserve number one, then you're crazy. Watch some of his official music videos.

Born in the State of New York to a Danish father and American mother, he lived in Argentina during his childhood. He is the recipient of various accolades including a Screen Actors Guild Award and has been nominated for three Academy Awards, three BAFTA Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards.

He represents a curious and committed man. Actor, artist, poet, intellectual, and adventurous. He's an intelligent and educated man, and he embodies our constant search for the essence of things. Beautiful, inside and out.

I love Viggo in anything he does! He always gives every role he plays 1,000 percent!

The Contenders
11 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

Definitely the hottest guy that I've ever seen, not to mention that he is like 6'5" and has the skinny rockstar look. I love him so much. He has amazing hair, looks, personality, and a great voice with a range of 5 octaves. I will marry him as soon as I'm 18.

I normally don't like long hair on men, but he is a major exception. He's truly beautiful (not a very good picture, though). He's funny, too. Love him!

Literally one of the sexiest men of the time, not to mention Rachel Bolan, who was also in Skid Row. Those eyes! He has it all.

12 Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

Morten should be number 1. Way better looking than Marti Pellow and Michael Jackson. He also has a beautiful voice. For me, he and Whitney Houston top it. Oh, an honorable mention: the King, Elvis Presley. He and Morten are beautiful men with stunning voices.

Lead singer of A-ha, famous for "Take On Me." Not only is this guy drop-dead gorgeous, but he also has the voice of an angel. He's sweet and polite, he doesn't even really enjoy being famous, he's relatable, he's a family man, and he loves animals. Did I mention he's drop-dead gorgeous?

Morten, in his youth, was sexy, and even now he is one of the most beautiful men in the world.

13 River Phoenix River Jude Phoenix, born River Jude Bottom (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993) was an American actor, musician, and activist. He was the older brother of Rain Phoenix, Joaquin Phoenix, Liberty Phoenix and Summer Phoenix.

Not hot in the slightest, but his name is really cool.

He was insanely beautiful, inside and out.

Come on, no words needed.

My sexy angel.

16 Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II (born June 9, 1963) is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

I still think Johnny Depp is a legend. I'm not the only one who thinks that way.

That movie "Chocolat," when he licks his finger, is the sexiest scene ever!

I loved the creepiness.

I can truthfully, though shamefully, say that I have wept over his beauty, namely in Romeo and Juliet.

Leonardo DiCaprio is so much hotter.

I've come to the conclusion that he must have been God walking as a man. No other human being is comparable to his handsomeness and his utterly seductive sex appeal.

Beautiful voice, beautiful face! Pure power and energy. Just watch Queen's set at Live Aid if you don't believe me. So gorgeous!

Freddie, honey, you're so sexy, such a bad boy you are. Let's make love.

The most handsome man ever!
