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

24 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?

25 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 :(

26 Chibi Chibi

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!

27 Jen Ledger Jen Ledger

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

Jen is the best.
First, she Sings and plays the drums, no one else on this list does that.
Plus she is such an awesome person and a great role-model. She probably head bangs more then any of these other people on the list.

29 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.

30 Shirley Manson Shirley Manson Shirley Ann Manson is a Scottish-born singer, songwriter and actress. She is the lead vocalist of the alternative rock band Garbage.

How can you pass over her? First in Silverfish then in Garbage with Butch Vig, they made a whole new sound that we haven't heard again since. A perfect mix of style, passion, and talent.

31 Wendy O'Williams

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.

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

32 Kelly Osbourne Kelly Osbourne Kelly Lee Osbourne is a British singer-songwriter, actress, television presenter and fashion designer.

The daughter of the guy who practically created heavy metal; Ozzy Osbourne!

I love her dad, the great, the amazing, OZZY OSBOURNE!

33 Doro
34 Ellen Foley
35 Christina Scabbia

Lacuna Coil Lead Singer!

36 Sheryl Crow Sheryl Crow Sheryl Suzanne Crow is an American singer-songwriter and actress. Her music incorporates elements of pop, rock, folk, country and blues.

Really, no Sheryl Crow? I think Sheryl Crow's got it going on over Kelly Osbourne, Demi Lovato, or even Kim Carnes. Thanks for adding Nina Hagen, even though I wouldn't call her a rocker. Bonnie Raitt is a fantastic guitarist, but I hesitate to call her a rocker... maybe Blues-inspired rock. Thanks for the list.

37 Mika Nakashima

she rocks. she starred NANA and its great - ronluna

38 Melissa Etheridge Melissa Etheridge
39 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato
40 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.
