(In response to Deanna's list: "That's actually a great list. Ray Lamontagne has an awesome beard.")
Maybe a bonus section for "oldies but goodies"?

Jim Morrison: He might be most
recognizable for his early days with the model-esque clean shaven look,
but when he took the turn to the hairy side he went all out. The later
years saw him sporting a lion's mane of bearded manliness.
Rob Zombie: While the "evil goatee" concept didn't originate with him, like everything else he's taken it to the extreme.
Dave Grohl: He gains points for
keeping it throughout the decades, even when it wasn't "cool", but loses
points for jumping between beard & goatee styles.
Kenny Rogers: Country-cool with a beard to match.
John Lennon: Imagine all the time it took him to maintain that Jesus-beard.
Mick Jagger: Maybe it was an effort to cover up his freakishly large
mouth, but Mick sported a grizzle man beard that lumberjacks would be
Jerry Garcia: Even if you don't love the Dead, you've got to appreciate
Garcia's beard volume. Apparently acid is good for hair growth.
ZZ Top: Iconic beards, their dedication to facial hair is only topped by their dedication to rock n roll.
Motorhead (Lemmy): Any musician that has a beard style named after him deserves to be first in a bearded band list.
Bonus: Rick Rubin - Music producer extraordinaire, and obviously the inspiration for Hagrid.
