41 Ashley Costello

Ash is such an amazing singer! She'd definitely one of the best rocker chicks out there! New Years Day is literally one of my top favorite bands! ASH SHOULD BE HIGHER ON THIS LIST! SHE'S LITERALLY A GODDESS!

She is so badass! New Years Days is the realest band ever. Great music, great lyrics. ALL HAIL ONE AND ONLY ASHLEY COSTELLO!

Ash is amazing

42 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

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


43 Meg Myers

Meg Myers is such a beautiful, angry singer. She captures every moment with her songs and you have to learn to love her.

One of the most emotional singers I've ever heard.

Meg Meyers is amazing at singing!

44 Kimbra Kimbra Kimbra Lee Johnson, known mononymously as Kimbra, is a New Zealand recording artist based in Los Angeles.

She's an amazing singer. Just listen to songs like Come Into My Head, Cameo Lover, Somebody That I Used to Know (Gotye feat. Kimbra) and watch her live performance of Settle Down in Spotify Sessions.

45 St. Vincent St. Vincent Anne Erin "Annie" Clark, better known by her stage name St. Vincent, is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.
46 Corrin Tucker

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.

47 Lindsey Pavao
48 Laurie Anderson

You can't even begin to talk about alternative women without mentioning the woman who started it all (and she's married to Lou Reed, for Pete's Sake). Her 2010 release Homeland is very good. -

49 Charlotte Hatherley
50 Norah Jones Norah Jones
51 Taylor Momsen Taylor Momsen

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.

52 Jen Ledger Jen Ledger

Cool! This girl bring such a cool duo of singers in the rock band Skillet. She's the female voice and drummer of thisawsome rock band.

53 Lykke Li

There's absolutely no way in which you can make a top like this without Lykke Li. She is so talented, has a powerful voice and meaningful music. On top of that, she is gorgeous!

One of the greatest artist right now.

54 Amanda Palmer
55 Vieem

She is the best singer of now time. What I love about her is that she is a tripple threat. She sings and writes. Her music is really, really good. She's not a gimmicky kind of singer. She's the certain real deal in so many ways. If ever there is a singer of now time that anyone should check out it. Hands down Vieem takes the cake. I love her music, style and her voice is gorgeous. It's no wonder why so many other singers try to copy her so much. Because she's really good.

She is simply amazing

56 Lyndsey Gunnulfsen

Her sound is refreshing and I see a great potential in her. She's obviously the best young female rock singer these days.

57 Angie Hart
58 Kelli Ali

She is the former vocalist of sneaker pimps her voice simply gets a sharp good quality sound that some female artist simply just don't got if you want proof listen to a song called teardop hitting the ground or 6 underground

59 Sandra Nasic

The singer of Guano Apes. Very powerful voice with huge range. She is capable of brutal rough screams, shown many times in older Guano Apes' songs. But she can also sing high-pitched tones with crystal clarity.
