She is gorgeous! She is the truly metal queen with amazing voice! No one can compete her passion in music..

She is a diva.. Her talents, her passions and her voice absolutely awesome.. She is better with nightwish but she is doing well lately.. No one can beat her headbanging

23 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.

Are you kidding me?
A list of female rockers and no Suzi Quatro, this is sacrilege, How in God's name did you forget Suzi?

24 Tina Turner Tina Turner Tina Turner, née Anna Mae Bullock, is a singer, dancer, actress and author, whose career has spanned more than half a century, earning her widespread recognition and numerous awards.

With a comeback that would become known around the world, Ms. Turner has dominated almost ever genre there is but she is known to many as the "Queen Of Rock & Roll". - israel08

She owned it like no other. The heart of Rock is in struggle. She has evolved over her life to embody the heart of rock.

She sang "River Deep - Mountain High, " for pete's sake. She clearly should be number one, it makes no sense to see her all the way down at 35 :(

Chibi from The Birthday Massacre is an absolutely amazing singer and an extremely sweet person! She hits beautiful high notes and is great at growling. And she's pretty sexy too!

She's sexy, a good drummer, and a good singer. Anything more to say?

Jen rocks. That's all you need to know.

Everything about her is awesome

27 Chrissie Hynde

Chrissie is such a badass. Not to mention one of the best singer/songwriters in rock, with some genuine guitar chops as well.

For over all Rock 'n Roll attitude this woman is the best. She looked like she could kick your butt and then sing about it. - mgenet

For overall rocker chops, I think Chrissie has it all: good singer/songwriter/can handle an ax.

29 Ellen Foley
30 Shirley Manson
31 Wendy O'Williams

Is most likely the most raunchy performer this world has seen. She puts Lady Gaga to shame, even though she is no longer with us. As the lead singer of The Plasmatics, she stormed the stage with a chainsaw and wore whipped cream for a shirt. - MegBaX

Sadly Wendy, 'The Queen of Shock Rock', never got the success and recognition she deserved. Mostly, as singer of the Plasmatics (check out Butcher Baby, Sex Junkie, A Pig is a Pig, The Damned, etc.), as well as a solo-artist. Also worth mentioning is her duet with Lemmy (Stand by your man) and the hilarious concept-album 'Maggots: The Record'. She was also in several films, plus in a stage-production of the 'Rocky Horror Show'. Shame, she took her own life far too early.

32 Gwen Stefani Gwen Stefani

She's not rock and she sucks

33 Doro
34 Mika Nakashima

she rocks. she starred NANA and its great - ronluna

35 Lita Ford Lita Ford Lita Rossana Ford is an English-born American rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, who was the lead guitarist for The Runaways in the late 1970s, an all-female rock band formed by Joan Jett and Sandy West. In the 1980s Lita Ford embarked on a solo career.

Lita Ford belongs in the top 5... period. She may not have had as many hits as some of these other female rockers, but that doesn't mean she wasn't fantastic!

Lita was rocking before avril and all these other gals. Lita had a much marvelous career than joan also.

Not Only A Great Songstress But Really Hot

36 Christina Scabbia

Lacuna Coil Lead Singer!

37 Patty Smyth

The underrated singer that first lead Scandal to fame and then had some success on her own. Listen to Goodbye To You, Love's Got A Line On You, Beat Of A Heart, Warrior, Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough, Downtown Train. The woman has an amazing voice!!!

Come on, not only is she awesome, she spawned R.E.M.!
She also has a very unique voice and did not conform to any sort of gender role.

39 Linda Ronstadt Linda Ronstadt Linda Maria Ronstadt is an American popular music singer. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award, and numerous United States and internationally certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums.
40 Brody Dalle

Brody Dalle inspires me so much, I started playing guitar because of her and Courtney Love, Brody Dalle is definitely a better musician than Hayley Williams or Amy Lee (I don't mention others on top ten because either I don't know them or they are legends). In my opinion Brody should be number 1. The Distillers were amazing! - dianajorge2
