49. Axl Rose
Band: Guns N' Roses
Led by Axl Rose, Guns N' Roses burst onto the LA scene in the late '80s and seemingly pissed off everyone in the country while dominating the charts and earning the moniker "The Most Dangerous Band in the World." Axl was a pure rockstar; girls wanted him and guys wanted to be him. In a time before everyone had tattoos, Axl was tatted up like a badass and had the cachet to rock skin-tight leather pants and have a flowing mane without looking like the sissy hair metal bands that preceded him.
