Yes, yes, we all know – the haircut maketh the rock star, but sometimes you’ve got to wonder. Is it cool or were they taking the piss? Were we idiots for ever contemplating that it might have been cool? No Sir – here we bring you a few more of the culprits in our massive Tone Deaf shame file.

A Flock Of Seagulls When you hair looks like a skunk has been used by the US military as an aircraft landing strip you have to wonder what you’re doing.
Wolfmother Hmmm, Andrew Stockdale, few white people can get away with an afro, and sadly for you – you’re not one of them.
Chuck Berry He might be one of the coolest founding fathers of rock n’ roll, but how much hair gel or grease did he have to use in his hair???
Boy George There are so many eras to choose from and so much shit within them, but we can’t help falling for mid-1980s George with his hair full of ribbons with a preacher’s hat perched atop it.
Amy Winehouse Darling, you were in your early 20s when you rose to fame in the late 2000s. That means it’s not the 1960s and surely you need the time in the day to meet with your dealer and fire up the crack pipe rather than spending a load on hairspray tying up your beehive.
Limahl – Kajagoogoo Ahhh, the 1980s and one hit wonders. Alas for Limahl, he was to become the butt of music journalist jokes for decades later.
La Roux Apart from her efforts to defy gravity with her hair, there is nothing to give this haircut any kudos whatsoever. 0/10, and not even points for effort.
Paul Weller They may call him the Modfather, but geez, some of his haircuts in the 2000s have borne more than an undignified comparison to a duck’s arse.
The Thompson Twins Stop It. Right Now. It hurts us to look at these photos!
Daryl Braithwaite Sherbet’s front man had every woman in Australia weak at the knees for him during the mid 1970s. Looking at these photos of him, it’s hard to understand why. It must’ve been his awesome ‘personality’. (PS He's the one on the left)
