It’s Movember, and that means men all over the place are growing (or shaving) their facial hair to raise awareness around the health issues faced by men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. To celebrate the hairy movement, here’re seven songs all about face rugs.
The Bandettes, The Beard Song
Somewhere between Dolly Parton and a beer commercial, this Swedish band are all about those luxurious follicles.
The Beards, You Should Consider Having Sex With A Bearded Man
The quintessential beard band. Apparently having seen Justin Hawkins, they decided the glam-rock revival was too feminine.
ZZ Top, La Grange
Not technically a song about beards, but ZZ Top are surely the most renowned bearded band in music history, and the fact that the only member without a beard is called Frank Beard will never not be funny.
Amick Byram in A Million Ways to Die in the West, If You’ve Only Got A Moustache
In which a moustachioed Neil Patrick Harris emasculates Seth MacFarlane for not rocking a soup strainer.
Devendra Barnhart, This Beard is for Siobhan
Few folk know a beard better than Devvy Barnhart, 2006’s most swoon-worthy indie boy. If you owned a plaid shirt or a polka dot dress in the mid-aughts, you had a crush on Barnhart at one point, and probably found yourself wishing you, in fact, were Siobhan.
CAKE, Mustache Man
Facial hair becomes pornographic the instant you put it in some ’80s throwback, which is why the lead in this video looks like the kind of English teacher who’d ask you to stay behind after every class. Tom Selleck has a lot to answer for.
Richard Annett and Jesse Hawkins, Let It Grow
For Movember a few years ago, these two fellas created this Let It Go parody. And it’s still just as relevant.
