21 Courtney Love Courtney Love

I love her voice, I heard her sing in a Fall Out Boy song on the album, Save Rock n Roll. And it was awesome. There's not a better woman in the world for that song. The job she does as a rocking singer, she is officially my favorite.

Courtney Love has a voice that is unbeatable and can make you feel either full of rage or just kinda sway back and forth! And that is the "hole" truth.

She is incredible. She can make you love alternative music if you once hear her.

Regina is a singer and a thinker. Her songs al hopeful celebrations of life amid a critical stance of our world. Beautiful and powerful.

Regina is a real genius.Her songs are pure art, they're so human and heart warming. She has her own unique and quirky style.

Unique in every sense of the word. Really can't be mistaken for anyone else. Her distinctive voice and eloqusion is pure, sweet, joyful and somehow sad all at the same time.

How is she not on this list shes is amazing

36 Sierra Kusterbeck
37 Ani DiFranco

Best singer/songwriter on this list by far. She paved the way for many of the women on this list through her insightful, independent approach towards the record business. Her lyrics are poetic, powerful prose that lilt off her tongue and resonate in your ears for days.

38 P!nk P!nk Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress. V 1 Comment
39 Corrin Tucker

All of the women on this list have nice voices. None however used their voice as another instrument like Tucker did with Sleater-Kinney. Undoubtedly #1.

40 Beth Gibbons

Sorry but Gwen Stefanni would slap you herself for leaving Beth out.
She would slap you for putting herself above Beth Gibbons. PJ Harvey also
Has a much wider vocal range than Gwen. Beth Gibbons hits notes
That do not seem possible. Check out You Tube video "Spider Monkey"
Beth Gibbons. Wait until the end... You'll see. Where's Sinead O'Conner?
Sorry but Gwen doesn't have crap on these women.
