21. Paul Banks of Interpol
Can we all just agree once and for all to stop comparing Interpol’s frontman to the late, great Ian Curtis of Joy Division? Curtis’ hollow, broken-hearted baritone was the very embodiment of sadness and alienation; Banks’ declamatory bray is the very embodiment of Brooklyn scenesters doing too much coke in the bathroom. Gotta admit, though—dude can rock a black leather tie.
