AARON YOUNG has one hot beard, at least according to a parody countdown by local Adelaide band The Beards. 

The Power midfielder was ranked No. 70 in the band's #Hottest100Beards countdown on Twitter on Australia Day, which ran as an amusing alternative to the annual music countdown on Triple J radio. 

Young was chuffed with the recognition.

He was quick to receive praise, at least from teammate Alipate Carlile.

But eat your heart out Justin Westhoff - the Power faithful's favourite beard missed the cut. 

Young joined esteem company in the countdown, surrounded by famous beard-folk like Charles Darwin, Leonardo DiCaprio and Chewbacca to name a few.
