... Sexiest man alive? Come on now every woman on earth wanted him in his youth

Axl Rose was not only the sexiest male rocker, but he was also the sexiest man alive at the time. No one compares to him in the late 80s/early 90s. Every man I have ever seen falls short in my eyes now. Axl Rose is the epitome of sexy, both in his personality and looks.

Axl was a hottie in his prime. He has a rocking/sexy voice though that no one can compare.

Lemme just drop it, Axl was the definition of B A B E in his youth.

This is the most handsome male creature I've ever seen. Perfect body and face. So sexy. And a perfect voice - one of the best singers ever. Check out the original video for the song 'I Want Out' (1988) by Helloween. - Metal_Treasure

The most beautiful male I've ever seen. He seems much better than this pic.

The best looking guy on this list and also the sexiest. As a singer he is perfect, too, and in terms of vocal skills the only real competitors are Freddie and Cornell.
My top 5 (considering both their looks and vocal skills)
#1 Kiske
#2 Chris Cornell
#3 Bon Jovi
#4 Bruce Dickinson
#5 Sebastian Bach. - Metal_Treasure

As if his georgious looks aren't enough, he has the most incredible voice ever! No one else can sing with such rasp, grit, beauty and power. What's more? His live performances are just as impressive as his studio voice, proving he doesn't need autotune. His voice is just so unique and it's half the reason I'm so in love with him. The other half is a combination of wild good looks and classic charisma.
I'm still so mad he's not the lead singer for Three Days Grace anymore! Matt Walst can't even begin to compare with the power Adam puts into his live performances!

10 Sebastian Bach 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.

I say Sebastian should be in the top 3 if not one. He is the definition of sexy, and has a spectacular voice like nothing you could ever imagine.

Tall, lean, sexy, best hair, with one of the best rock n roll vocals. He is definitely top 3. If not number 1

! I couldn't believe when I saw him for the first time. He was hot and what a voice- spectacular. Gives me chills every time I listen to him. Definitely number 1 for me.

How is Kurt Cobain's been voted sexier than Sebastian?! Sebastian has a better voice and a better personality!

21 Robert Plant Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Time passes. Everybody thought beautiful on this list will be old folks eventually. Robert Plant in his 1970's glory was a "golden god" that would run away with polls like these... More importantly and lasting is the fact that with Led Zeppelin he helped create music that will forever top polls.

Watch "The Song Remains the Same", and see why he belongs way up near the top of the list.

(He's much more gorgeous than this photo. Find a better one? )

His live performances make him the most beautiful -- along with his amazing hair!

His voice, his hair, his personality... Perfection exists!

25 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

Many people call Marilyn Manson ugly, but he's actually not as ugly as people say he is. I admit, he does look a bit awkward with all the makeup on, but underneath the makeup, he actually doesn't look that bad. And he's actually a really nice and intelligent guy in real life. Just watch interviews with him. You'll see what I mean.

Sexiest man I've ever seen

Marilyn Manson is so sexy!

No. People in the comments are calling someone who on purpose tries to make himself look super hideous the sexiest man they have ever seen? This is just wrong! - 445956
