Best Female Fronted Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blondie Blondie Blondie is an American rock band founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s.

Blondie and Debbie Harry set the bar high very early on and I think you'd find that everyone else who is on this list would agree that great deference is owed to her.

In my oplnion great band and Debbie Harry and Blondie should be on the top of your list because the new groups are definite runner ups. And they are popular for awhile until the next fad group comes along. Check out how long Blondie was in the top place with super music and concerts.

Are you guys serious #49, absolutely insane! Top 10 for sure, maybe even top 5!

Blonde is slowly coming up but nowhere near high enough yet, they gotta be in at least top 10

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!

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!

24 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!

29 Amaranthe Amaranthe Amaranthe is a Swedish heavy metal band notable for having three lead vocalists: Elize Ryd, Jake E. Lundberg, and Henrik Englund Wilhemsson, each presenting a different vocal style. Their second album, The Nexus, reached 6th on Swedish charts, 4th on Finnish charts, and reached a peak of 12th on the more.

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

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

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...

36 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 Skillet Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

They aren't female fronted. But their drummer is a backup singer, so... whatever, I guess.

Their lead singer is male but one of the singers is female so I guess this technically counts.
