Every November men around the world let their razors rust and let the facial hair flow as part of No-Shave November to help raise cancer awareness. Now as everyone knows, heavy metal is home to some of music’s most hirsute rockers and what better way to ring in the month than by checking out some of the greatest beards in the history of hard rock.Rockers first started getting shaggy back in the late ’60s, which is also coincidentally when they started stacking Marshall cabinets and cranking out heavy riffs, so it’s a natural pairing. The beards and handlebar mustaches of hard rock’s golden age gave way to the clean shaven look of the heavy metal ’80s, but the last decade has seen a return of facial hair on some of the genre’s heaviest hitters. From legends like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin to modern day metalbeards like Lamb Of God and Mastodon, we’ve got them all, so check out our gallery and follow suit if the mood fits and support this noble cause.

See bearded metal lords Lamb Of God talk about their greatest shows and vices from when they stopped by That Metal Show this past year.
