Beards have been a hallmark of rock style since the Sixties, when the Beatles announced their adulthood by getting very, very shaggy. Facial hair on rock stars can range from the theatrical (Rob Zombie, ZZ Top) to the artfully scruffy (Thom Yorke, Bon Iver) to the meticulously detailed (pretty much any nü-metal band).

Our question for you this week is: Which rocker has the best beard? They can have a beard now or have had an amazing and iconic beard at some point in their career. To refresh your memory, you can check out this gallery of great rock beards.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
