Rock and roll and sex appeal are pretty much inextricable. The term "rock and roll" is itself a sexual euphemism, and since the very beginning of the genre, when Elvis Presley's swiveling hips were considered a threat to America's youth, rock music has been bound up in visual appeal and sexualized marketing.

Even so, sometimes a performer comes along whose overly sexy image winds up overshadowing their genuine musical talent. What if Mozart had stuffed a sock down his pants, or Ray Charles paraded around shirtless and bragged about all the models he was banging? It wouldn't change the music they'd made -- but it would change the way we looked at it, wouldn't it?

Along those lines, we partner with our friends at Diffuser to present this list of 10 Rockers Too Sexy For Their Own Good.
