A legend. Brilliant voice and 1979 LP, "Night Out" proves it.

125 Sandy Denny Sandy Denny Alexandra Elene MacLean Denny, later known as Sandy Denny, was an English singer-songwriter who was lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention.
126 Allison Wolfe

Taking no lip, great lyrics

127 Ronnie Spector

She has an unforgettable voice; nobody can sing "Be my Baby" like she can!

From having the strongest voice as a member of The Ronettes to her solo-albums, especially 'She talks to Rainbows', produced by Joey Ramone, feat. Tracks by him, as well as, J. Thunders and Brian Wilson. And, last not least, her guest vocals for various artists, from the Misfits, Southside Johnny, E-Street-Band to The Raveonettes. A truly incredible career!

128 Katie Cruel
129 Lyndsey Gunnulfsen

PVRIS is kind of new, but she has a beautiful voice, and her band is on the rise!

Listen to St. Patrick and I'm sure you will put her in the top 10. Pvris I admit I didn't like but when I heared st patrick my mind changed

130 Ashley Costello

New Years Day! Listen to Angel Eyes ft. Chris Motionless. And Other Side. Those songs made me love her

Ash is such an amazing and strong woman. I wish she could be higher 😐

131 Rihanna Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian pop singer . Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

In response to the comment, she belongs in the top 10 worst singers. She's not even rock, not even remotely close...

Why is rihanna even on the rock list what

Oh yes, as long as these others are on here which are not ROCK in the least... Pink, Haley and Avril just to mention a few...

Come on why is she here? Guys we got a mainstream pop star here!

133 Gen Vincent

As lead singer of the band Genitorturers since 1994, this woman has more talent than the majority of singers I've heard, both within and without the genre of metal. To this day she maintains her brilliant and fantastic vocal range, beauty, engaging stage presence, and individuality both on the stage and in the studio. She reaches some very impressive highs, mids, and lows, and her screams and growls are so unexpected that they only enhance the songs further. Another winning trait in my book is how she genuinely appreciates and loves her fans. I've had the pleasure of meeting her once actually, and not only did she sign my poster and collar, but she took pictures with me wearing each other's hats and we even had a 30 minute long conversation!

134 Suzi Quatro Suzi Quatro Susan Kay "Suzi" Quatro is an American hard rock singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actress. She was the first female bass player to become a major rock star, breaking a barrier to women's participation in rock music.

Suzi showed the rest what could be. She was the first. She broke down barriers so other woman could see what was possible. That rasp is what makes for a great rock singer. There is also a big range at work here, maybe not as noticeable as others but it is extraordinary. She should be in the top 10 no doubt. A true legend!

Wow how can she be so far down! One of the best and most versatile female voices

Greatest female vocalist, with Chrissie Hynde and Debbie Harry

Trial blazer of her day. Still enjoy her work and she deserves to be higher in this list.

135 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . more.

She has matured throughout the years both from a musical/songwriting/singing aspect and also from a personal aspect. I really like her album with Tony Bennett and I think it was her true chance to unravel her true talent, nailing high notes ever since. Her voice is steady, her singing is soulful and I appreciate the fact that she uses no lip sync. I think the real career starts now (adding her acting role in American horror story where she nailed it). I'd like to see her do some rock (as I know she is a big 'Queen' and rock fan) and please Gaga don't ever go back to those meatdresses and strange you were doing to draw attention!

Just so you understand she is not a Rock music artist. What?

Not even remotely Rock with this one!

Moth into Flame anyone?

Great voice from Switzerland. Very powerful, unique voice with an amazing range.

Amazing singer and songwriter, very authentic, so beautiful and charming. I love her style. The voice is the best I ever heard from a woman.

Beautiful voice, beautiful woman, beautiful smile, beautiful country where she's from. Stunning songs, funny and crazy lyrics. I love SUGAMICE!

This rock star can blow your mind.

137 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

Female rockers are Chibi from The Birthday Massacre, Maria Brink from In This Moment, and Lacey Sturm formerly from Flyleaf. Not this mainstream pop star who is controlled by hollywood.

Demi is a rock n roll queen.

Ohh I Love Her

I'm a devoted metal fan but I make an exception for Demi,Gaga and Adele. The girl is just 23 years old and already has a crazy vocal range and a decent stage appearance. Her voice is strong and unbreakable and her singing is soulful.Some really nice performances that got my attention are ''An Intimate Performance'' her live Performance of 'Skyscraper','Confident' (and the album is good as well) 'Stone cold' her 'Titanium' and 'Hello' cover etc. From the songwriting aspect I think she lacks some skill into giving depth to her songs but she has time to mature. *The fact that she writes her own songs is a big plus though.* I'd like to see her doing some rock or jazz stuff in the future.
