Before they became rock and metal legends, they were just regular kids in school. And just like regular kids, they had to line up and take the dreaded yearbook picture.

Whose idea was it to immortalize the most awkward days of our youth? Anyway, these yearbook pictures range from embarrassing, flattering and all the way to unrecognizable. We've been posting yearbook photos of our favorite musicians for a while now, but this is the mother of all collections.

We've got well over 150 rock star yearbook pictures to share, so find a comfortable spot and look through the early years of rock and metal's greatest talents! If you make it deep enough into this collection, we’ve included some yearbook pictures from alternative rock and classic rock stars as a bonus.
