Most of the time any band with a female singer will be known for her only. But that's just because most of one's focus in a rock song goes to the words. Rock and roll is so sexual, and the female voice is generally very sexy. Listen to "Wilderness" by Sleater-Kinney, and you'll hear an example. The Pretenders obviously come to mind, but Chrissie Hynde was the main songwriter, too. In my opinion the best female rock singers are those whose voices ooze sexuality... like Janis, Patti Smith, Ann Wilson, etc. But that's what rock is all about, nasty sex. There's just something so hot about a woman getting up there and screaming. Oof.

BTW - Don't say it's sexist to think this way... not all of Robert Plant's appeal to the ladies was his voice (nods towards croch).






If anyone thinks I'm sexist, I'm gonna' go listen to "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders and cry.

I myself, the girl, have to confess that I can't take serious the most rockbands with female leadsingers. Or rather: I just don't listen to them.
Like No Doubt or something like that...(Is No Doubt ROCK??? No. Not really... You see my point?)
There are a few female singers I like, but they're soloartists like PJ Harvey or Melissa auf der Maur.

Rock bands are predominantly male, so i think its just more out of lack of choice than quality. But I adore PJ Harvey (adore as in "obsess about"), and Charlotte Hatherley (adore as in *explodes in joy*), but almost all women exploit their sexuality in music, e.g the Subways (quote: "I only wear mini-skirts all the time for ventilation, hee hee"). But you have bands like Von Bondies and White Stripes (i know i know they shouldnt be that close together what with the restraining order and all) and Autolux where the women aren't distinguished as an opposite sex, but just as much a part of the band, and that works well.

Ha ha and anybody remember "Bitch Alert!!!!"...Priceless band!

I spent the last 15 minutes compiling some good artists and good bands that include female vocals to further prove my original point:
Blondie, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Portishead, Doreen Shaffer, Metric, Dry and Heavy, Bessie Smith, Tilly and the Will, Natacha Atlas, New Pornographers, Vice Squad, Veruca Salt, X, Deerhoof, Mercury Rev, Tori Amos, The Slits, Fiery Furnaces, Ladytron, Wolfbrigade, Magneta Lane, The No No's, Frou Frou, Architecture in Helsinki, Figurine, Freezepop, Call and Response, The Pixies, The Breeders, Fugu, Magnetic Fields, Cibo Matto, Hang on the Box, The Raincoats, Cowboy Junkies, The Evens, The Rondelles, Meet the Virus, Le Tigre, Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin, The Runaways, Melt Banana, F-Minus, Sonic Youth, Peaches, The Avengers, Nausea, The Devotchkas, Witch Hunt, Katie Melua, KMFDM, Antischism, .f*ckingcom, old Sneaker Pimps, Mirah, Elysian Fields, Bratmobile, Rilo Kiley, The Alley Cats, Blatz, The Crabs, Saraha Hotnights. (if you know any of these bands and like them, then clap your hands)

Yes yes, thats why I like her...Her musical prowess...

Ah no really I do think shes quite the talent, but she did dilute Ash slightly.
