Top Ten Best Female Fronted Bands of the 1990sBboymakinwitthefrekfreak The best bands with a female as their lead-singer. I ranked these on their critical rankings, fanbase, number of hits on the billboard 200, and my own opinion. These bands don't have to be formed in the 90's, but reached their peak of quality and popularity in the decade.
The Top Ten
Fun Fact- I became a fan of this band by playing Guitar Hero 5 on the Wii, which Shirley Manson made a cameo as you played guitar to "Only Happy When It Rains". Anyway, a couple things about Garbage. Manson's vocals are probably the best of a rock band from the 90's, maybe second to Gwen Stefani's. They have countless great songs and hits like Stupid Girl, Only Happy When It Rains, #1 Crush, and Queer, which was a cover. Garbage is the best female lead band of all time through my eyes, and if you listened to their music, you'd think so to. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
If you don't know who Gwen Stefani is, you've been living under a rock underneath a bigger rock that I lost in my closet. No Doubt made an appearance in King of the Hill, made the Billboard top 200 cart multiple times, and even played for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, for a good reason to. Their music is very pleasent and catchy. My personal favorite song of their's is "Sunday Morning" because it shows off Gwen's vocal abilities and Tom Dumant's guitarist ability, all while sounding good. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
These were good. I liked her more when I found out her favourite type of music is (or was at the time) ska! - Britgirl
I hate solo Gwen Stefani, however, No Doubt is a very good band. - BeatlesFan1964
Say what you like about Courtney Love, you can't say that she doesn't make some great albums. "Celebrity Skin" and "Miss World" are probably their finest albums, and I recommend them if you haven't listened to them yet. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
The Breeders were a staple of grunge, with their album Last Splash and single "Cannonball", but their legend still lives on today in the Pirated Compact Discs of the 90's.
*side note - Kim Deal's voice is amazeballs on "Saints" abd "Cannonball". - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
I love the Cranberries they should be at least in the top 5!
They must be in the first five! :))

The early Nightwish with Tarja had a very distinct sound...
Enter & The Dance are classic late 90's gothic/symphonic rock. Sharon's voice is so beautiful and angelic
Enter was the best album of the 1990's. Sharon is amazing.
Best band ever.
They are genuinely one of my favorite groups ever. Up there with Nirvana, Queen, and The Beatles.
I can't believe that this isn't on this list yet
