I love her. She's been one of my favorite singers ever since I was little. She's such a badass, there's no woman that could be better than her. Rock on, Avril.
Avril is a great artist. I love how rebel she is. She's one of the artists that you NEED to existV1 Comment
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.V2 Comments
Number one! Lacey is incredibly unique and has meaning behind everything that she says and does.
Lacey should definitely be farther up, she is incredibly talented, and flyleaf has amazing and meaningful lyrics.
she is not only known to pop - ronluna
She is cool and covering her songs with my friend who is a girl is awesome... Guitar tone is cool as well. Its fun to play and sing live... Natalie for the win! 10000 maniacs are good too!
Natalie Merchant is a pioneer in the Alternative industry with her band 10,000 maniacs and influenced many artists in her genre. - cranfan4ever
She one of the first generation Alternative Nation superstars and remains an artist of the highest standards in modern music...
She is a one of a kind... unique and awesome... there's no other like her!V2 Comments
Although she is considered to be aloof she got a shy beautiful voice as the vocalist of mazzy star she has potential of having a nice voice
You must listen her songs. Her lyrics are perfect, and her voice even more. The first songs that I heard was "New Americana" and "Trouble". I instantly fell in love. She's amazing and she deserves more than she has.
Listen to her songs colors and trouble. You will instantly fall in love.
She's such a talented singer and a brilliant person.V3 Comments
I saw her live and she was so amazing on stage. She looked like it was her sole purpose in life
The best and most rock n roll female inspiration to the music industry today. Amazing vocalist and writer.
Listen to "Save Me" and you tell me why she doesn't at least deserve a spot at the top 5.V1 Comment
Wait? Kate Bush is only #32 on this list? She practically INVENTED the alternative pop genre! She paved the way for singers like Tori Amos, Bjork, PJ Harvey, Regina Spektor, and Fiona Apple. She should be #1!
Check out songs like Wuthering Heights, Breathing, Hello Earth, Sat in Your Lap, and The Sensual World. She is a musical genius who needs more attention.
I can't believe that Kate Bush is so overlooked. That siren's voice hers is mystifying. Her lyrics create an environment that transcends beyond auditory recognition. She truly was pioneer in alternative music! Peter Gabriel recognized her unique gift and abilities immediately. If you didn't vote for Kate because you don't know her, GET TO KNOW HER!
The Dreaming and Hounds of Love are masterpieces and still sound unique today. Her vocals are insane and her lyrics brilliant. there's really not much to say, everything that needs to be said is said within her own work.V2 Comments
Known by her stage name "Bat for Lashes"
Extremely versatile vocal range! She is so good live, don't even know why she isn't on the list already!
Her sound is incredible and she just knows how to rock everything she does.
I love Marina and her amazing voice.V2 Comments
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.
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.
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.
