List Rules Successful artists known for their looks and sex appeal. Only individual people - no bands or groups.

If you've got it, flaunt it, and that's what these rock stars do. And for that they've been rewarded with the honor of sexiest artists of all time. Many of these artists have maintained their sex appeal for decades, take Madonna and Janet Jackson for example. Then there's rock gods like Bruce Springsteen and Sting, who still make hearts race during live shows. Many of whom are steaming up a new generation of music fans, while Britney Spears, Usher, and Justin Timberlake grew up with their fan base, artists like Trey Songz, Katy Perry, and Rihanna won over new music fans. And some of whom made your parents (or grandparents) melt with their steamy videos and performances like Elvis (he invented sex appeal in rock n' rolll) and Tina Turner. While some may no longer be with us, musicians like Aaliyah, 2Pac and Leslie Cheung will always be remembered for their massive sex appeal. Rock, pop, R&B, hip-hop, even country--it's all here. Steamy videos are included.
