It’s hard to be a committed homosexualist when you don’t like dance music. Sure, you can blast the Dusty Springfield and Rufus Wainwright til your ears bleed , but if you want hot guys singin’ about hot guys you’re pretty much stuck with The Magnetic Fields (Or, god help us, Pansy Division.) We here at Fleshbot would like to help the lost music-lover with 60s kitsch, heavy-metal muscle men, and so so much more after the jump.
In the mid-60s, a company called “Camp Records” sold albums in the back of *cough* fitness magazines. They usually featured popular covers and novelty songs with the genders a little more same-sex friendly. With albums like “The Queen Is In the Closet” and “Mad About The Boy”, Camp Records is a strange, incredibly catchy nugget of gay history.

Patrick Wolf makes us feel like a dirty old man. It doesn’t seem fair that a beautiful slip of a boy should be able to sing, play instruments, slap ass on stage, and do it all amazingly well. Not many people can pull off Ziggy Stardust by way of Larry Clark.

Queers and Punks have always enjoyed an alliance. What’s more punk rock than a blowjob in a bathroom? Jinx Titanic of Chicago is like a comic book character come to life: a hunky leather daddy who sings poppy punk songs about hot guys. Seriously, we’ve had “Everyone Loves A Muscle Boi” in our heads for like a month and think you should too.

Okay, maybe you like it a little harder. A little heavier. A little more …German? Rammstein’s “Mann Gegen Mann” video is an ode to gay male sexuality of the sweaty bodybuilder type. Very sweaty. Also naked. We don’t know what they’re saying but, at this point, is it even necessary?
