The man bun trend has taken over the music industry and swept up hair from all genres. Here are our favorite examples of musicians rockin’ the man bun!

We have always loved this English rocker’s passionate vocals, and our “Love Remains The Same” with regards to his man bun.

Will man buns survive the apocalypse? The Walking Dead featured Kiev’s track “Be Gone Dull Cage” in season 5 so, we would like to think so.

And of course, who other than Hozier to take us to church with the great and powerful man bun? We love it!

Honorable Mention: Shaun White

Shaun White receives an honorable mention because in addition to snowboarding and skateboarding, the Flying Tomato is the guitarist for the band Bad Things, and he used to have a pretty sweet man bun.
