Loud, garish, outrageous, the lot. Which rock stars don't know the meaning of the word "subtle"? Radio X takes a look...
Meat Loaf... the ultimate purveyor of power dressing loud back in the day. It wasn't a performance if it didn't include long hair, a frilly shirt and lots of sweat. Photo credit: Keystone/Stringer
Just look at that. Just look at it. Who looks at something that shade of yellow and thinks: "I'm going to rock that"? Axl does. You have to admire the confidence of the man. And remember the corn rows?
Bjork falls into the 'we love you but your style is mental' category. This looks like clown headgear crossed with a pretty bizarre form of mould. Crossed with something from Fraggle Rock.
Not so much these days as Mr Flowers is channelling Bruce Springsteen but remember the feathered shoulder pads?

Now, don't get us wrong. We love the Iggster. He is a musical icon. All we're saying is we think it might be time he put on a shirt. He is 65 after all and it gets nippy out.
Kate Nash isn't a regular offender but she does have a few... unusual options in her closet. This seems a bit tye dye industiral jellyfish
Just... what was this about Keith? Thankfully it looks like the mental suit days are behind him but you never know
They were New Rave scenesters and don't they know it.
The shock effect has long since finished so now Mr Manson just looks a bit like someone's crazed aunt.
Keeping the punk-pop look going strong. You'd never guess Noodles was in his 50s.
We love you Yannis but sometimes... the shirts... the jumpers... the East London-ness!
