10 Celebrities Who Were High School Band Geeks

Celebs they're just like us! They were kind of nerdy in high school! But I think we all know that band geeks are actually the coolest kids in HS. I mean it takes cajones to wear that dorky outfit while playing the tuba. At least that's what I always told myself when I cried into my pillow every night as a teen. Here's a looksie at 10 celebrities who were high school band geeks!

 

Lil Wayne

Instrument-percussion

Don't you just wanna go back in time and give lil Dwayne Carter a hug? It's kind of hard to believe that this sweet little boy grew up to tattoo the work 'Baked' on his face. That's hella more embarrassing than being a geeky band kid.

 

Jennifer Garner

Instrument- saxophone

She's still awesomely dorky, so I'm not at all surprised that she was once probably unabashedly grooving to a marching band arrangement of 'Thriller'.  Take note Anne Hathaway, Garner does beautiful girl with gawky awkward charm right!

 

Bill Clinton

Instrument- saxophone

More like sex-ophone! HAHAHAHA, I kill me. Sorry. I do awkward charm wrong too.

 

Julia Roberts

Instrument- clarinet

It might be surprising to think of this pretty woman as a band geek, but then you see a pic of her old hair and it all makes sense. I kid, I kid, eat pray love and all that good stuff. Namaste, Julia. 

 

Tommy Lee

Instrument- Drums

From the Royal Oak High School Marching Band to Motley Crue. Not bad. Who says band geeks can't grow up to star in their very own infamous sex tape? I say so. Sorry band geeks, that has a one in a kajillion chance of happening again.

 

Eva Longoria

Instrument- clarinet

I kind of hate her for still looking so damn cute in that hideous band uniform.  I have a feeling Longoria had every dude in the band friendzoned.

 

Kurt Cobain

Instrument- drums

I love that the composer of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' actually had to at one time in his life amp up the crowd at a big game. Thank goodness he had all that teen angst build up, because I think we all know pain and suffering create the best music. Maybe I'll like the Biebers and 1Ds of the world more when they suffer some trauma and disappointments in their lives. 

 

Gwen Stefani

Instrument- flute/piccolo

Gwen faked her way into the band by pretending she could play the flute. She confessed in an interview that although she was desperate to join the band, she spent most of the time making out with her boyfriend in the band room. Geeking out and making out don't usually go together. Touche Gwen, touche.

 

Trent Reznor

Instrument- Saxophone

Sure, now Trent Reznor is all badass Oscar-winning music god. But has his hair really improved much? He pretty grew up to be Emo Dad.

 

Ke$ha

Instrument- trumpet and saxophone

Ke$ha has actual musical training!?!  I'm autotuning that fact to make it more palatable.
