Dolores definitely shows a delightful, vibrant and musically talented influence on Alternative music with her band the Cranberries with soft ballads to guitar blazing rock songs she never disappoints and no one can even sound like her as she has such a wonderful unique voice and can definitely rock out on over 4 different instruments. Now solo she has not lost her touch but shows that a woman singer/songwriter can achieve success in a pop world - cranfan4ever
She has amazing depth..! Her songs get caught in my head and keep playing over and over again! All her songs are so different and full of soul... Dolores rocks!
Alanis Morrisette is great, but she screams more. Dolores from the cranberries has beautiful vocals, especially in Linger.
Her music and voice can't be beat!V 3 Comments
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.V 1 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.
...simply the best...i just love her...V 1 Comment
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 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 is not only known to pop - ronluna
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.

Banks is just starting to build her career on the Alternative Genre but I must say that she belongs at the top. Her voice is sultry and haunting, her lyrics are pure genius, her aesthetic is and will forever be unique and that's why I love her.
How is she not on this list shes is amazing
She is amazing! - KatyMartinezAndTheDiamonds
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
Listen to "Save Me" and you tell me why she doesn't at least deserve a spot at the top 5.
By far, the best. So underrated.
Known by her stage name "Bat for Lashes"
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 exist
AVRIL IS definitely THE BEST THROUGHOUT THE YEARS... HAILEY WILLIAMS COMES NEXT!
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.
Beautiful voice and sexy live shows
