Is there anything we love more than a hot and sexy rock & roll frontman? How about when there’s someone even more attractive in the back of the band? Sometimes the best-looking guy isn’t the one who has the mic; it’s the babe with the bass, the drums or the backing vocals.

There’s no doubt in our minds that each of the frontmen on this list is a handsome piece of man candy. Mumford & Sons lead singer, Marcus Mumford, and Coldplay’s frontman, Chris Martin, are internationally renowned hotties. After all, Mumford is married to the breathtakingly gorgeous Carey Mulligan and Martin just “consciously uncoupled” from the beautiful Gwyneth Paltrow. Both guys can get it. However, have you seen Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett or Coldplay’s Guy Berryman lately? As handsome as Mumford and Martin are, their bandmates might be hotter.

So, the great debate rages: Is the frontman always the hot one? Was the Beach Boys’ sublime surfer dude Dennis Wilson more of a hunk than Mike Love? Is Fallout Boy’s Pete Wentz more attractive than Patrick Stump? Was Paul McCartney more of a babe than John Lennon was?

Do you still hold a torch for these famous frontmen? Or have found yourself swayed by their backing bandmates?
