Best Female Rock Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 4
Not really a Rock singer fronting a band?
Well where do I start. Smashing voice. Amazing work in the early 90's with REM and the Iggster. Obviously nailed it with the B52's. But, more than anythng, was one hot spunk in her day. Gotta love her.
Has her own Gibson guitar model!
How can anyone rank Sheryl crow as 67. She has 9 Grammys with 32 nominations and sold more than 50 million albums. besides maybe Stevie nicks she should be top 2.V 4 Comments
The one and only Kate Bush. Unique is often a term that is abused when comparing the best from the rest. There was no one else like Kate when she surprised the world with her talent. Incorporating music with movement is why she is a true original. Setting a new standard in arena shows allowed many others to follow. A fantastic talent!
Trial blazer. Heavily copied by Tori Amos. Not really a Rock singer more folk/pop. My personal favourite. Moment of Pleasure from Red Shoes album. It isn't rock though.
Kate Bush is a genius. Maybe someday the rest of the world will catch up. The most talented female singer-songwriter on this list.
The unique one. The legend. The magic. The master.V 6 Comments
This gal was the bomb in the 80s. Still puts on a great live show.
Hell ya! She belongs in too 10 more so than Joan Jett and Benatar for sure, nothing against themV 1 Comment
Sinead has a quality to her voice that is fragile and that's what makes it so compelling. You never quite know what to expect when she sings and that's the danger we all love. Brittle enough to bring you to tears yet strong lyrically to demand. Controversial though she may be is what sets her apart.
A great voice that I really would like to hear more of in the near future as she can rip her heart out right in front of you and be so sexy at the same time --love it
Mad as a March Hare. Pity she could have been great but is she really a rock singer; more pop in my opinion.
Mad as a bag of frogs but with a sublime singing voice.V 2 Comments
Cherie Currie is one of the best rock stars ever. She fronted The first all girl rock band. She sang hits like "Cherry Bomb", "Neon Angels", and "Heartbeat". After The Runaways she started a band with her identical twin sister Marie Currie. Their band was called Cherie and Marie Currie. They were great together. She has a sexy voice when it comes to the hard rocking stuff and a smooth and beautiful voice in the ballads. She emotionally connects with us in her songs. Her on stage movement is amazing.
Isn't Miranda Lambert country? Not rock? - Swellow
Sorry this is not a rock singer!
She's on the wrong Page!
Yeah remove the ugly country thingy from this list!
A most brilliant post, very insightful, and I pretty much agree with your entire list of those who come before Susanna Hoffs, although not as powerful a singer as these others, her appeal and effect on the listener, (the reason for recording these singers), is spot on. Kudos to you!
If you're not Linda Ronstadt, Ann (or Nancy) Wilson, Stevie Nicks, Alannah Miles, Joni Mitchell, Grace Potter, Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, Ruby Starr, Mama Cass or Grace Slick, and you're a girl, and you call yourself a singer, You need to get in line BEHIND Susanna Hoffs
As one of the four brilliant BANGS/LES, she and the band were BANGnapped by the suits. When back to their roots few are better. As for her voice and stage presence, boys of the 80's know, the EYES have it!
Not a rock sing more pop methinks!
I love her voice and she looked so good in Amaranthe's music video for The Nexus!
She's quite new to the music industry/scene but from what I've seen from Amaranthe the girl has a future. She has a 'barbie metalic' voice which fits perfectly to the band's music style. Strong voice that I hope will last in time.
Needs to strike out on her own before judgement.
She's amazing! And not only with Amaranthe... but her vocals with Kamelot are superbe!
Stratford-on-guy is awesome.
Is this Rock?
Lead singer of nico vega, one of the few female singer who can rock hard and create that scratchy rock sound
Beautiful in every respect and still going strong...
Not only being one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. She also has a great mellow voice that really gets me the chills.
The best out there right now - I have seen them twice in the US, and talked to her. She is very easy to approach and you can see she loves Delain's fans!
Just saw her in concert. Great stage presence, super voice and beautiful. Was able to meet her after the show. Very sweet.
Great voice, incredible lyricist and stage presence Charlotte is a star.
She's just as good live as the studio, I've seen it.
The lyrics from the last Delain album May not be that good, but her voice height.. DAMM! 😍😍
With her incredible wide vocal range, she qualifies not only for rock, but also for almost any genre, from punk to opera; a seldom found ability for any vocalist, male or female.
Beth Heart is maturing into the most powerful & underrated Rock/Blues singer of our time. Her voice is reminisant of Etta James at her very best, but with a depth, power & raw emotion in her lower register that comes from deep within a primal soul.
When Beth Hart finally breaks out, no one will be able to touch her.
There is no voice like hers. Awesome and truly magnificent.
Beth is in the same league as Billie, Sarah, Ella, Nina, and Etta.
Very strong voice!
