What we talk about when we talk about sex and rock 'n roll is often dudes, the lusty front men and axe-grinders who, perhaps, joined the band in the first place for the purpose of scoring.

But sexy women now dominate pop music, and the same mojo that's stuffed Mick Jagger's dressing room for time immemorial draws would-be groupies to female icons in the same way.

It just shows that being sexy is about more than looks. Nothing's hotter than a woman who can rock a mic, and we mean nothing; these musicians may have once been on our walls, but they live on in our fantasies. -Ben Westhoff

20. Samantha Fox

A pop star and model with some edge, Samantha Fox posed topless at age 16 for a newspaper in her native London. She sold boatloads of records, but the boys of my generation knew her mainly from her risque posters for sale at the back of hair metal magazines. Though these adverts were tiny, and a thin black line blocked out the good parts, I'm certain any of us would have married her. -Ben Westhoff

19. Grace Jones

A Jamaican-born model and muse of Andy Warhol, Grace Jones became a pop-disco siren in the '70s and '80s. She is the epitome of androgynous beauty. With her severe features, radiant skin, and lanky 5'10" physique, Jones rocks Reagan-era fashion hard, making shoulder pads and leotards look hot. And she wasn't afraid to take them off, either -- in 1998, she exposed her breasts at Disney World and was banned forever from the park. Yep, Grace Jones is officially too adult for the Magic Kingdom. -Linda Leseman

  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
