And here to start your holiday weekend off right, I’ve got my pick of the top ten guyliner videos ever made.
Now, just because some dude WORE eyeliner does not qualify him to be on this list. If that was my main criteria, then every hair band from the 80’s would make an appearance.
No, the song and the videos have to have that something special according to Glinda.
Feel free to disagree with me.
But I’m totally right.
In no particular order:
I thought I’d start it off with a bit of a bang. I present to you the special brand of crazy that is Ozzy Osborne performing with Black Sabbath.
No list like this would be complete without a Mr. David Bowie. I know this isn’t his first video with makeup by any means, but I think it’s probably the most entertaining/headscratching one. Oh, and embedding is disabled on Space Oddity, so there’s that.
Again, not a correct list without KISS. Not necessarily a huge fan of theirs, but I do like this song. I’m going to try and ignore the chest hair.
Ask not how the members of Culture Club know how to fly a plane and just enjoy. They look like they are having a lot of fun.
I dare you to think of The Cure without seeing Robert Smith and his guyliner.
To see the rest, click through!
And the inheritor of Robert Smith’s legacy, Billie Jo Armstrong…
Adam Ant was definitely the first man who I thought was dead sexy in makeup.
Brandon Flowers and the Killers also join the ranks of the fabulously guylinered. And I’m totally sure that’s a word.
I’ve got three words for you: Milton Freaking Burle. In a RATT video of all places!
Hey, it isn’t my fault almost everyone in the 80’s wore eyeliner! Billy Idol was on the zombie trend before it was even a trend.
