Best All-Girl Punk Bands

"Where are the girls?" - me when I look at any list on this website

The Top Ten


3 gals from the Bronx stripping funk, disco, and dance-punk down to a skeletal bass/drum/synth setup. is responsible for classic club hits like "Moody" and popular hip-hop sample "UFO" - Erucu

2 Sleater-Kinney

One of the quintessential "riot grrrl" bands of the 90s; definitely the most technically proficient of them as well - Erucu

3 Erase Errata

Angular and jarring noise punk from California. influenced by Beefheart and criminally underrated! - Erucu

4 Team Dresch

Another band arguably part of the riot grrrl scene of the 90s, though their songs dealt with a lot of LGBTQ+ themes as well - Erucu

5 The Runaways

An amazing band that had the potential to rule the charts

Can't deny their influence! - Erucu

6 LiliPUT

Funky dance-punk, an incredible rhythm section - Erucu

Funky dance-punk? Lilliput or also known as Kleenex was a band from Switzerland who were into minimalistic punk.They sung in English and in German and their sound were an influence for many New-Wave groups to come.

7 The Raincoats

Some more really solid punk. their first two albums are straight post-punk classics! - Erucu

8 Bikini Kill Bikini Kill Bikini Kill was an American punk rock band formed in Olympia, Washington, in October 1990. The group consisted of singer and songwriter Kathleen Hanna, guitarist Billy Karren, bassist Kathi Wilcox, and drummer Tobi Vail.
9 Cherri Bomb

Filled with 13-16 years old, this all-girl rock band produces amazing songs with complex drum pattern, catchy yet unique riffs and vocals that are way more mature than an ordinary 15 year olds voice. Definitely worth the listen.

They became such a trush as Hey violet

10 Dolly Mixture

More early post-punk, a very early precursor to the twee music of the 80s and 90s - Erucu

The Contenders

11 Shonen Knife

Highly prolific Japanese pop punk group. some pretty cute, pretty sick tunes - Erucu

12 Lunachicks
13 Bratmobile

I like it when they scream

14 The Slits

Typical girl. See the clip. Vote slits. Simple as that.

15 Army of Skanks
16 Y Pants

No wave band notable for using mostly toy instruments. very strange and noisy, but still interesting and great - Erucu

17 The Electrocutes

The donnas when they were good
