Best Female Rock Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
I know she is pop punk now but her first two albums were rock based and they were amazing with lyrics and sound. She also has a beautiful choice live. Great range.
She is just a beautiful woman who has a complete rock tallent. Hear to her succesfull pop rock single "Complicated", "Sk8er Boi","I'm With You" and a harder rock single "Losing Grip" from her first "Let Go". Then, hear to her alternative rock single "Don't Tell Me" and "My Happy Ending" from her "Under My Skin". Then, you can hear her pop rock ballad single from "The Best Damn Thing" and "Goodbye Lullaby", such as "When You're Gone","Keep Holding On","Wish You Were Here" etc. Also her harder rock single from "Goodbye Lullaby" with "What The Hell" and "Smile". And finally in hear newest self titled album, we can hear her "Let Go" style In "Here's To Never Growing Up". Then, her nu metal song, "Bad Girl". Also her cover songs "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett and "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback. Thank you
To those of you who say that Avril isn't rock: you obviously don't know what rock is. Half of the women on this list that are above Av are less rock than she is, and the other half are only as rock. Screaming your lungs out does not qualify as rock music, I'm sorry to say. That just means that you likely don't have a voice worth using. That being said, Avril is one of the most deserving rock and roll artists on this list... And should be much higher than 16th. Try 1st.
She tries too hard to be rock when she's nothing more than bland pop. - maarilynmaansonV 47 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...V 2 Comments
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
Not sure what the voters are thinking when they fail to mention Debbie as one of the best female performers. She paved the way for many. She was rocking with the best of them back in the CBGB days. Iconic to the hilt. The voice, the style, the looks, she had it all. Oh yeah not to mention topping the charts 4 times with a rap song, a dance song a reggae"ish" song and a movie theme song that ranked #1 for the year. Top 5 for sure!V 13 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
HATE THE SOUND OF HER VOICE - BUT WRITES GREAT SONGSV 5 Comments
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.
How is she not higher than Avril Lavigne? Maria can SCREAM. She is infinitely talented and should be up there with Lzzy Hale. - maarilynmaanson
It's insulting that she's this low on this list...V 6 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!V 78 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.V 2 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.
Classic queen of Postpunk. Gotta respect the classics.V 3 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.
Mesmerizing.V 4 Comments
Jen Ledger really knows how to deliver beautiful vocals and epic drum playing skills!
Jen could start her own band!
Bloody great vocalist from the band skillet
Jen is so PErfectV 2 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...
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!V 4 Comments
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 EVERV 1 Comment
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?V 7 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 singer
