Best Female Fronted Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Guano Apes

This should be on top 10
They ruled in the 90's and her voice is pretty damn powerful

42GirlschoolGirlschool are a British heavy metal band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978 and frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead.

This band should definitely be number one, better than all of the acts above and below it on this list

These girls have been everywhere playing their traditional NWBHM. They have even performed on several occasions with Motörhead.

43Dead Sara

This is the best newer female fronted band I have heard in a while. Should be and probably will be soon top 5 on this list in a year or two.

They are my new favourite band EVER. They should be much higher up the list!

One of the best bands out there! Check them out!

Kathleen Hanna is seriously bad ass!

Kathleen Hanna is the coolest women on the face of the earth.

I have more than one favorite but they have such a low rank! Badass band basically any Riot grl band is though.

45The Animal In Me

Album stuff is fairly heavy, check out the covers they do though, these are amazing! Female singer has an amazing voice.

My goto band now. I just newly discovered them. Along the same lines of skillet, but harder and improved.

46Ali Project
47Automatic Loveletter

This needs to be higher on the list. Juliet Simms has such an amazing voice.

PVRIS is such an amazing band and deserves to be much higher on the list! They do a great job of blending together some really cool and unique types of music and I Lynn is actually an amazing singer and really really talented. They're all so sweet too and is one of the most genuine bands I've had the opportunity of meeting.

PVRIS has more of an alternative rock sound but still should be AT LEAST top 10. Their music is just perfect and all the band members are so sweet. Definitely give them a chance if you haven't already.

They're so good! Someone needs to make a new list because this list obviously hasn't been updated in A WHILE.

This band deserve to be on the top of this list. You must listen to them if you haven't already.

50Sister SinSister Sin was an "old-school metal" band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band released four full-length albums, with the most recent Black Lotus released October 27, 2014. Sister Sin toured in Europe and North America with bands such as Slayer, King Diamond, Lordi and In This Moment before splitting in more.

They're not as hard rocking as Little Mix but they can rock just enough to pass as a rock band so there's at least that.

51Hands Held Hi

This is my best friend/brothers ( for life ) band I'm really ecstatic on where they are going to be in the next couple years they're all very talented young individuals I've heard every song so far and all is excellent from vocals to the instrumental and audio control. Best of luck to all in this band and the most important thing Have fun!

Awesome voice. Allison's voice comes from down legs into her body and trebles its way out of her vocal cords- you may never know how much power she invokes into her music until you sit back and watch them all perform. Great stage presence and a really good group of young artists.

This band is awesome they really know how to rock out their singer Allison Reno can sing her heart out the whole band knows how to bring a crowd in not only can she sing her heart out but she also screams like a beast

Love the way this girl sings

Guitar riffs to die for and depth in their work that's not given the credit it deserves. Surely top 5?.

Without a doubt, a top 5 band of all-time. They have come back in 2015 and still kick everyone's asses.

53Florence and the MachineFlorence and the Machine are an English indie rock band that formed in London in 2007, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch, Isabella Summers, and a collaboration of other artists.

Florence + The Machine should be ON THE TOP FIVE! Just listen to Howl and Girl With One Eye. Hell, just listen to ANY of their songs!

One of the best modern female fronted bands. Should definitely be in the top 5. Brilliant band

Why are they so low. They are the best (or maybe Paramore). At least top 5.

Best instrumental work out there, not to mention AMAZING vocals

Incredible sound with tight harmonies and blazing guitars! Sounds like Sevendust meets 80's rockers on Broadway. Haha Love this band!

This band is unbelievable live! Christy Johnson can sing her butt off!

This band is so kickass! Definitely one of the best rock bands out there!

Sirenia is an all-time favorite of mine. Their music and writing is beautiful. I think both of the singers that they've had are great, so people shouldn't diss either one of them. I can barely even decide my favorite album by them; however, I definitely can decide on my favorite song by them...

This band made me change my opinion about metal and all it's subgeners.

Scandal so underrated, this band should be on top 10! 4 of them got superb talent on rock music!

57HeadpinsHeadpins are a Canadian rock group, founded as a side project in the late 1970s by then Chilliwack members Ab Bryant and Brian MacLeod.
58UnSaid Fate
59Hey Monday

Even though these guys have broken up now, they are still one of the best pop punk bands out there. Cassadee Pope is highly underrated and has actually sung back-up vocals on more than one All Time Low song.

Brilliant band, talented lead singer, highly underrated


So much musical potential, their experimental musical style is just amazing and Becca is ace, literally going to blow up with their next release

These are amazing and should be bigger and known!
