Best Female Fronted Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Runaways

In my opinion, they tie with Blondie as the most influential and underrated female rock bands. Just listen to a couple of the Runaways' songs. They were rather ahead of their time

Cherie Currie, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Jackie Fox, and Sandy West. A band way ahead of their time. True legends

Ever heard of the song "Cherry Bomb"? That is the runaways.

Okay, where the HELL ARE THE RUNAWAYS? THEY SHOULD BE IN TOP TEN, ALONG WITH BLONDIE! WHAT IS THIS?

22 Otep

I, much to my chagrin, have only discovered this band very recently and I must say that Otep is extremely awesome. Personally, I enjoy music that gives you something to think about while your brain is being tossed back and forth Ina violent manner.

She has such a strong voice and the music is hardcore! Did I mention that the lyrics have very strong and important messages? I love Otep. It should really be higher on this list.

One of my favorite all time female lead bands!

23 The Breeders

Kim Deal is by far the most talented musician ever and is incredibly underrated. Releasing music for the sake of art, not money.

Kim Deal's amazing post-Pixies band - Influenced Nirvana!

Should be around top 10

Def #1 - Onafriday

24 Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane was a San Francisco, California-based band who pioneered the American counterculture movement as well as psychedelic rock. ...read more.

25 We Are the In Crowd

I'd like to point out that Tay is like a softer Hayley Williams. Sure they sound different but they have the same singing style. Just Hayley is able to do more advanced things. And Tay shares the mike with Jordan.

Tay is a great singer. With Jordan backing her up it sounds wonderful!

26 Lacuna Coil Lacuna Coil Lacuna Coil is an Italian metal band from Milan. Since their formation in 1994, the group has had two name changes, being previously known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal.

Compared to other female fronted bands, Cristina Scabbia shares the mic with Andy Ferro. Scabbia's heavenly, controlled vocals blend well with Andy's gruff beautiful unpolished style of singing. They band were one of the trend setter for the gothic music style in the late 90's in Europe.
For anyone looking to get into them, the songs 'My Spirit', 'Kill The Lights' and 'Losing My Religion' will no fail to impress.

The most beautiful and sexy vocalist who know, excellent voice, fantastic band

Cristina Scabbia is the singer who can gather the maximum quality with the sensuality of maximum, is beautiful and fantastic love it should be mosprimeiros places this top

#20?! Deserves top 2 at least!

Amazing rock band that got foxier with age

Love is the killer and a homicidal fiend! Janet, Jan, Share, and Roxxxy knew how to rev it up!

Grace Slick has a wonderfully sassy voice. Some classic tracks too.

32 The Brilliant Green

They are simply amazing, perfect combination of strong melodies with harder rock/metal influences.

I love this band!

Elize Ryd might be the most underrated, or at least underappreciated, voice on this list

34 Eyes Set to Kill

The Rodriguez sisters; not on hot but talented. They deserved to be higher in this list

They should be on #1...

Very very good song...

I love eyes set to kill...

35 Leaves' Eyes Leaves' Eyes Leaves' Eyes is a German-Norwegian symphonic metal band from Stavanger, Norway and Ludwigsburg, Germany.
36 Fireflight

Seriously...well I'm not gonna blow a gasket here. But fireflight is my #1 favorite hard rock band with a female singer. No ifs, ands, or buts. I just love the feel of music.

Didn't really know Hard Rock Christian music until I heard them... One of my top 5 bands of all time...

Uplifting and hard rocking.

Very good. Nice songs

37 The Sugarcubes The Sugarcubes The Sugarcubes were an Icelandic alternative rock band formed in 1986 and disbanded in 1992. They received critical and popular acclaim internationally.

With Bjork, everything will be awesome.

38 Plasmatics

I would have loved to seem them live
And they deserve a way higher rank, they're not my only favorite band on here but they're just ranked so low. Plasmatics are awesome, and Wendy is/was an amazing front woman and is forever a legend

39 Orchard Hill
40 Stitched Up Heart

Saw them live, opening for One-Eyed Doll - very impressed! They rocked hard! Met them after the show & they were very cool people as well. Definitely check them out.

Can't believe it took me that long too find this on the list. This band rocks by far better that In This Moment

Hey this band is every bit as good if not better than In This Moment

GREAT band! give them a listen!
