Best Female Rock Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2XW
She was certainly better than Joan Jett whos only big hit "I love Rock n Roll" was just one of those songs you were supposed to like, you listen to it for years and it kind of grinds in your head until one day it just comes to you that it really is a horrible cheesy song. Listen to Blondie's "Eat to the Beat" album. You will realize that Deborah should be in the top ten.
She has and had so much charisma and also a great sense of humour and wit. Songs were brilliant and their first four albums are classics this tiny beautiful woman with the huge cheek bones and outlandishly beautiful mouth and eyes and then that hair that had dark roots. What an icon. 21 is too low! - ChatonNoir
Debbie Harry, the front woman of Blondie, paved the path that Madonna walked. Should be #1
I honestly can not believe she is not in top three or four, but, I can not believe many other things as well...She was absolutely PERFECT, not only her looks, but her voice and groove is just amazing...V12 Comments
The rage and anger to the softer lyrics she can sing are truly unique. I can't think of another singer were her range and versatility. Should be in the top 15 at least.
Great style and very moving, she can certainly tell a story
Definitely the queen of alternative rock

Maria Brink is the best. Hands down. She can sing, scream, snarl... She does it all and does it well! All while being beautiful.
I looove Maria Brink! Her voice does things most girls can only dream of doing. She's got a snarl that sends chills down my spine. Not to mention she owns her looks and body in every way. She definitely deserves to be further up there in this list.
I love Maria Brink's voice, she should definitely be higher up the list. She has an amazing voice
Drop dead gorgeous and one of the best female metal singers!V4 Comments
Nancy Wilson is one of the best female guitarists out there and was long overdue in getting inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Nancy is one hot lady that we have always looked up to... Very very talented and rocks out, love to watch her perform. She should be right at the top with her sister Ann! Legendary ROCK N ROLL.. The BEST
Nancy has what it takes for several decades now, great personality, soft but yet one of the most beautiful voices... Just love to hear her singing! And always a real gutsy unmatched ability to perform with awesome get down attitude!
Awesome singer and musician! Favorite's Dreams and will you be there in the morning, love those songs!V78 Comments
Beautiful voice, beautiful woman!
<3 Cristina's voice is so unique and she's an amazing performer on stage with so much adrenaline, power and energy... And next to that definitely no diva but so kind to her fans and downearth... She's always there for her fans who she really loves...V2 Comments
Along with Stevie Nicks, these two women are what made fleetwood Mac one of the greatest rock bands in history. Their album rumours is still one of the highest selling albums.V2 Comments
Siouxsie's voice is completely unique and has progressed nicely throughout her career: the power snapping barks in the 70's turned in to a strong icy chilled purrs, the the early 90's her signature wails inspired a while generation of Siouxsie wannabe's.
Cool looking woman with a unique dark voice not all their songs are so great thou - ChatonNoir
Tinderbox is still an amazing sounding album.
I love this band - BrotherOfWolves001V3 Comments
How could she not already be on the list?
No way should she be out of the top ten. She had more talent than most singers could ever hope for and her range was unlimited.
Deep powerful voice, backed up by emotional, gripping performances. She must be in the top 5.
Deserves a higher position. Awesome.V3 Comments
Jen Ledger really knows how to deliver beautiful vocals and epic drum playing skills!
Bloody great vocalist from the band skillet
Mad skills why is she not number 1V2 Comments
Heavenly, otherworldly, unique, and addictive. Her voice is like no other. She should be number two.
Saved my life
"paper bag" has all the range any singer would imagine at great and PEOPLE she wrote the song. they used to kick Jim Morrison off the stage when he used to want to just jam, they said, Make it a song finish, that's what I feel her albums are like. She gives me that idea and that power that she does just by being her.
Blues/rock/soul - amazing synthesis of multiple forms, and what a voice...
Cannot be touched. Simply the best voice of all time.
Phenomonial singer and performer. Powerhouse vocalist live. Although there are a lot of great singers on this list, none come close to her strong ROCK delivery!
Lead singer of Skunk Anansie. HUGE all over except here in the states. Killer pipes. Best female vocalist EVERV1 Comment
One of the sexiest, most badass chicks in music. Red hair, smeared makeup, short skirts, hell of a voice, and lyrics that could be either sad or frightening. What a woman... My favorite redhead ever.
Shirley's a Rock & Roll goddess. Sultry and menacing voice and presence, and one of the most honest and badass chicks in music.
She's the perfect rock frontwoman. She isn't afraid to speak her mind or to be herself. Her charisma alone surely contributes largely to Garbage's following. Listen to her stuff when she was still with her former band, Angelfish, and you'd be convinced that this woman has what it takes to front a band.
Love that redhead witch!V4 Comments
She was the first to fill the unique gap between melody and gore without sounding like someone was stomping on cats.
The quintessential female rocker with a fabulous rock and roll voice. Hands down the best female rock and roller, with Grace Slick running a close second. (NOTE: Quite a few women on this list are NOT rock and roll singers. Pop, the Blues, Country are NOT rock 'n' roll! ) - LaLocaHSA
Her voice is really good and she can sing in different ways. The pretenders are one of the best rock bands and she along with her band is legendary.
Top of my list for sure. I agree there are a lot of names on this list, while good in their own right, are NOT ROCKERS!
This list is a big joke... It shows the votes are not even counted... WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THIS SITE?V7 Comments
How can Cass Elliot be 36th? She was not only the best single voice, she harmonized beautifully with the Mamas and Papas. She was the greatest female singer in rock history. 36 th? Who made this list?
All the rest are posers. Mama Cass had the most exceptional voice ever. Karen Carpenter was a solid number 2.
Simply the best, no one even close. Would have only got better.
One of the best and strongest voices ever, man or women.
No one can top the power vocals of one of the greatest female rocker behind joan jet
Forever best female rock singerV1 Comment
Great voice from Switzerland. Very powerful, unique voice with an amazing range.
Amazing singer and songwriter, very authentic, so beautiful and charming. I love her style. The voice is the best I ever heard from a woman.
Beautiful voice, beautiful woman, beautiful smile, beautiful country where she's from. Stunning songs, funny and crazy lyrics. I love SUGAMICE!
This rock star can blow your mind.V28 Comments
She is an amazingly good poet and a beautiful person with a unique voice.V1 Comment
