The 12 Worst Christmas Gifts to Give Rock Stars for Christmas
Music Lessons
Music Lessons
Anyone who thinks this is a good idea needs to realize that rock stars are professional musicians. They, you know, do this for a living. A workshop is probably the last thing someone like Bob Dylan or Paul McCartney needs. (Photo by Skip Bolen/Getty Images)

Don't by a case of RockStar for your Rock Star. Just don't do it. Nobody likes puns. Nobody. Just don't do it. (By Theonlysilentbob (Own work) [GFDL (www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html) or CC-BY-SA-3.0-2.5-2.0-1.0 (www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons)

If for no other reason than they'd have to get dressed up to go. It's hard to see much of a reason why any musician (even rock stars) wouldn't enjoy the work of other talented musicians, but in order to go, your rock star will most likely have to wear a tux (or at least a sport coat), which would probably clash with their leather pants.

Earplugs
Earplugs
This is about as un-rock and roll as it gets. Even Pete Townshend probably prefers to rock his way out of being able to hear. And AC/DC would probably throw you out of their shows for wearing them. (Photo by Richard Heathcote/Getty Images)
Chick Flicks on DVD/Blu-Ray

It's generally a bad idea to buy a Chick Flick for ANY guy, but buying one for an uber-alpha-male Rock Star is just total ignorance of everything that men stand for everywhere.
Pet Rabbit
Pet Rabbit
Pets in general may not be a bad idea for a rock star, but a bunny rabbit is the last thing to consider. Unless it's a good old fashioned dog or cat - or something crazy like a dragon - steer clear of pets. (Photo by Harold Cunningham/Getty Images)
Flowers

Even dead flowers aren't a good idea. It's more likely they'll end up stomped to shreds or set on fire than put in a vase. (Photo by Michel Porro/Getty Images)
Accordion
Accordion
You want to see a Rock Star flip out in a destructive rampage without the assistance of drugs or alcohol? Give them an accordion. No instrument in music screams "rock and roll" less than the accordion. Plus, imagine wrapping an accordion in gift wrap...Seems like a major pain in the ass. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)
"Guitar Hero" or "Rock Band" Video Game
"Guitar Hero" or "Rock Band" Video Game
If you ask people who actually play music, most of them hate these games with a passion. Like the same reason a lot of people who actually served in the military hate first-person shooters, they feel the game just isn't an accurate depiction of the skills needed to be a musician. And they have a point: pressing buttons on a plastic toy doesn't exactly equate to hitting strings. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
Manicure/Pedicure

Again, a gift that you should think twice about before giving to any man, let alone a Rock Star. This makes the list simply for the sheer insult that it would besmirch on the receiver of the gift, even for nail-painters like Ozzy Osbourne. (Photo by Elizabeth Burks/Getty Images for Bloomingdale's)
Earmuffs

Actually, depending on how you present this gift, it could actually be a nice gesture. You could give it to Pete Townshend, a sign of thoughtfulness that you remembered his tinnitus and that he needs ear plugs to play music. Or, you could give it to some crappy artist (like Kenny G) with the insinuation of "your music is so awful that even you shouldn't listen to it - here, these should help."

Anything by Kenny G

Forget Rock Stars, this would be a terrible gift for anyone. There's bad music, then there's awful music, then there's horrifying music, then there's transcendentally bad music...Then there's Kenny G. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
