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

43 Ruby Starr
44 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

56 Annie Lennox Annie Lennox

Iconic, beautiful voice, captivating presence, expressive face, and some of the best music videos I have ever seen. - MegBaX

57 Nina Hagen Nina Hagen Catharina Hagen, better known by her stage name Nina Hagen, is a German singer-songwriter and actress born on March 11, 1955 in former East Berlin. more.

She is bold and wild (her voice, her look, her presence. ) She mixes punk and rock with operaic vocals, and has a distinctive and unique sound. She is known as the Mother of Punk. Her voice can do anything. - MegBaX

A real vocal monster.
Fearless, outstanding and totally true to herself; everything a great rocker needs.
Nunsexmonkrock is by far one of the most unique and best albums ever recorded

Her musical styles are as wide ranged as her voice. From the first 2 albums with the Nina Hagen Band (later known as Spliff Radio Show, then just Spliff), a mixture of rock and punk (with occasionally some reggae), to the totally mind-blowing, experimental first solo-album 'Nunsexmonkrock', to an array of albums, featuring Indian folk music, Big Band- Jazz/Swing, Dance and Techno and Gospel (Personal Jesus), she is one of the most unique artists on this planet. Also check out her incredible collaborations with Apocalyptica, Lene Lovich, Rosenstolz, Adamski, S.U.N. project and many others, even with Lemmy. And, last not least, dozens of excellent covers, E.G. white punks on dope, Good Vibrations, Sunday Morning, Lucky Number, My Way, Knockin' on heaven's door, Giant Step, Born to die in Berlin, Viva Las Vegas, Spirit in the sky and many more. Should be in Top 10.

58 Johnette Napolitano
59 Lyn-Z Lyn-Z

She's in the band Mindless Self Indulgence, and she's married to Gerard Way aka the best, hottest rock star ever!

60 Lene Lovich

Ignoring her debut-single 'I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus'('76), her debut-album incl. A version of 'I think we're alone now', far better than Tiffany's number 1 hit, the UK-No.3-hit 'Lucky Number' and great tracks 'Home' and 'Too tender to touch'. 2nd album 'Flex' had the brilliant 'Bird Song', 'Angels', 'The Night' and 'What will I do without you'. Later releases never reached the quality of the first two albums, but singles 'It's you, only you', 'The Wicked Witch' and collaboration-single with Nina Hagen 'Don't kill the animals' are still well worth listening to. A remarkable, terribly overlooked artist.
