The Contenders: Page 3

41 Eurythmics Eurythmics Eurythmics were a British music duo consisting of members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart. Stewart and Lennox were both previously in the band The Tourists, who split up in 1980; Eurythmics were formed that year in London.

Sweet dreams are made of this...

42 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.

43 Tokyo Jihen
44 New Years Day

Ashley is so beautiful in both singing and personalities that she makes Jennifer Lawrence look like a member of Hollywood Undead.

49 are you kidding me, Ash constellation is so amazing and beautiful and nikki shreds awesome guitar solos

Why the crap isn't this higher on the list? They're super popular so I'm so confused. And they are so good.

Why aren't they higher on this list? They are so amazing, they are one of my top five favourite bands

46 Guano Apes

This should be on top 10
They ruled in the 90's and her voice is pretty damn powerful

47 Girlschool Girlschool Girlschool are a British heavy metal band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978 and frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead.

This band should definitely be number one, better than all of the acts above and below it on this list

These girls have been everywhere playing their traditional NWBHM. They have even performed on several occasions with Motörhead.

48 Dead Sara

This is the best newer female fronted band I have heard in a while. Should be and probably will be soon top 5 on this list in a year or two.

Surprised they're this low on the list. I like the way they sound, and I enjoy the second album, not counting airport sessions, just because it feels a bit different, as well as sounds good.

They are my new favourite band EVER. They should be much higher up the list!

I picked up on Dead Sara from the T.V. show Banshee, their track Weatherman was played over the end credits and that's all it took to have me hooked. Armstrong's belting lyrics coupled with the bands note perfect performances even when live should have this band in the top ten all time.

PVRIS is such an amazing band and deserves to be much higher on the list! They do a great job of blending together some really cool and unique types of music and I Lynn is actually an amazing singer and really really talented. They're all so sweet too and is one of the most genuine bands I've had the opportunity of meeting.

PVRIS has more of an alternative rock sound but still should be AT LEAST top 10. Their music is just perfect and all the band members are so sweet. Definitely give them a chance if you haven't already.

They're so good! Someone needs to make a new list because this list obviously hasn't been updated in A WHILE.

I absolutely love this band, not sure why they’re so low on this list!

50 The Animal In Me

Album stuff is fairly heavy, check out the covers they do though, these are amazing! Female singer has an amazing voice.

My goto band now. I just newly discovered them. Along the same lines of skillet, but harder and improved.

51 Bikini Kill

Kathleen Hanna is seriously bad ass!

Kathleen Hanna is the coolest women on the face of the earth.

I have more than one favorite but they have such a low rank! Badass band basically any Riot grl band is though.

53 September Mourning

I saw them in concert, at a small, local venue. Fantastic!

September Mourning makes great music that matches up with her comic book persona.
The cross-media work is great, and great fun, especially in concert. - Strikh

56 Sister Sin Sister Sin Sister Sin was an "old-school metal" band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band released four full-length albums, with the most recent Black Lotus released October 27, 2014. Sister Sin toured in Europe and North America with bands such as Slayer, King Diamond, Lordi and In This Moment before splitting in more.

They're not as hard rocking as Little Mix but they can rock just enough to pass as a rock band so there's at least that.

57 L7

Guitar riffs to die for and depth in their work that's not given the credit it deserves. Surely top 5?.

Without a doubt, a top 5 band of all-time. They have come back in 2015 and still kick everyone's asses.

58 Hands Held Hi

This is my best friend/brothers ( for life ) band I'm really ecstatic on where they are going to be in the next couple years they're all very talented young individuals I've heard every song so far and all is excellent from vocals to the instrumental and audio control. Best of luck to all in this band and the most important thing Have fun!

Awesome voice. Allison's voice comes from down legs into her body and trebles its way out of her vocal cords- you may never know how much power she invokes into her music until you sit back and watch them all perform. Great stage presence and a really good group of young artists.

This band is awesome they really know how to rock out their singer Allison Reno can sing her heart out the whole band knows how to bring a crowd in not only can she sing her heart out but she also screams like a beast

Love the way this girl sings

59 Scandal

Scandal so underrated, this band should be on top 10! 4 of them got superb talent on rock music!

The best rock girl band in the universe!

60 Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine are an English indie rock band that formed in London in 2007, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch, Isabella Summers, and a collaboration of other artists.

Florence + The Machine should be ON THE TOP FIVE! Just listen to Howl and Girl With One Eye. Hell, just listen to ANY of their songs!

One of the best modern female fronted bands. Should definitely be in the top 5. Brilliant band

Why are they so low. They are the best (or maybe Paramore). At least top 5.

Best instrumental work out there, not to mention AMAZING vocals
