Rock and roll has taught the world many lessons. Perhaps one of its most underrated is this: You don’t have to be tall to be a giant rock star.

In fact, some of the biggest names in rock history could be classified as “short kings.”

What’s a “short king” you may ask? First coined by comedian/writer Jaboukie Young-White, a short king is a slang term of endearment for a man who is under 5’9″ according to Urban Dictionary.

Prince, who celebrates his birthday today (June 7) is a prime example of a rock and roll short king. In honor of his birthday, scroll through the gallery below to see which other rock stars are considered short kings.
