: it's all about looks with you people, isn't it?

Image is very important whether you like it or not.
Since you don't get the chance to sit down and have a deep philosophical conversation with every since person you meet, most will simply see how you dress and how you carry yourself and make themselves a neat compact little summary of you and your personality based off of comparisons. Prejudging happens all the time, and I'm sure you even do it yourself to a degree. It's pretty much unavoidable as humans.
If a musical group has certain ideals or messages they're trying to convey, their image can help get it across. Performing doesn't always have to do with just sound, sight is also used to express. Take a look at Opera, or even music videos. Though subject to interpretation, it's all art.
