It's a dangerous mix, global fame and style choices. Often rock star egos go (literally) to their heads and they leave the house with the hairstyles so absurd they need to be shamed. Here are 25 of the very most questionable, starting with, no, not a lower league 70s Scottish footballer on signing day, but one Roger Daltry from The Who.

Axl Rose, erstwhile legend of Guns 'N Roses, ditched the bandana and silky locks for this bizarre barnet of coloured corn rows. At least the match-up of red dreads to the microphone draws attention away from the shirt.

It's all gone pretty wrong here but the key culprit is Brian McManus with curtains that resemble the golden arches. Never good if you're over 12 year old.

To tie one top-knot atop your perma-gurning face could be considered a misfortune, Miley Cyrus, but two must be considered a publicity campaign par excellence.

There's something about the Hanson brothers matching haircuts that makes you realise they're the musical equivalent of those terrifying twins from The Shining.

The combination of 'Dancing In The Moonlight', an album called 'Onka's Big Moka' and lead singer's Joseph Washbourn's mop of golden curls made 2000 a very iffy year for music.

Sorry, white people, but dreadlocks really aren't for you. This goes double for members of cheesy 90s pop groups. We're looking at you, Faye from Steps.

Ah yes, the classic curtains made popular by Ben Adams from late 90s boy band A1 (whatd'yamean you don’t remember A1?) and other such luminaries as Jamie Mitchell off Eastenders and David Beckham.

Purveyor of mainstream folk Newton Faulkner rocks the ‘I just got back from WOMAD Festival look’. He teams it with extra chin fluff to perfect the look. It’s low maintenance, and you can smell it from space.

Long, long before we became one of the world’s biggest pop stars and touring chum with ultra-cool people like Jay Z, Justin Timberlake was the idol of a million young teens as part of 'N Sync. The reason? His super ceeeeute curly locks. Bringing wavey back.

We couldn’t do a gallery of terrible rock hairstyles without citing someone for sporting the ultimate crime: The Mullet. Step forward Jon Bon Jovi. Fortunately later he’d later cut most of it off, act his age and join the cast of Ally McBeal.

As brother Liam correctly pointed out, Noel's barnet and eyebrow combination gives him the look of Parker, Lady Penelope's long-suffering driver from Thunderbirds. Still, you have to give him marks for never being swayed by fashion. He's had that haircut longer than some of his fans have been alive.
