Getting older is no fun. Your body starts to hurt for no reason, you lose all your energy, you stop being able to digest certain foods, you realize just about everyone in the world is an asshole (including yourself), you get cranky and curmudgeonly and threatened by youth, you unrealistically romanticize "the old days" and obsess over not having appreciated them enough, your relatives start to die off, you understand how much time and potential you've wasted through the years, your feelings grow less intense until you slip into a sort of permanent numbness, your hope fades, your dreams die, and your body finally starts to resemble the dried-up old husk you've already become on the inside.

And worst of all, sometimes your hair falls out.

What can you do? Well, you could accept what's happening to you and trim up your remaining hair into something debonair and tasteful. You could shave your head for a more daring look. You could start getting really into hats. You could grow out your beard and what hair you have left for that fashionable "might be a hobo, might just be into indie-rock" look.

However you choose to accept your impending baldness, you'll probably be doing it a lot less embarrassingly than a few achingly insecure rock stars. Here are some of the worst hairpieces in rock.
