The Best Female Rock Singers

List Criteria: Female rock vocalists only!

Best female rock vocalists of all time include some of the greatest girl rock singers ever. This list includes some of the most memorable rock goddesses ever -- women whose voices ring out powerfully in every single song. Who deserves the top spot? That's up to you to decide, with your votes. Be sure to vote up the female rock vocalists you like the most, and vote down any that you just don't like. You can also make your own unique list by reranking, and you can add women to the list as well.

Any list about the best female rock singers should include iconic names like Stevie Nicks, Melissa Etheridge, Pat Benatar and Joan Jett. These women have been belting out amazing tunes for decades, and none show any signs of slowing down. And of course, anyone who appreciates great rock music knows that Heart's Ann Wilson has one of the most stunning, awe-inspiring voices in rock history. Amy Lee, the lead singer of Evanescence, is a huge favorite as well. Her vocal prowess is astounding.

Those choices are pretty obvious, but there are others who might not be. This list includes the best female rock vocalists from all types of rock music: Glam punk, hard rock, pop rock and more. Nothing is off limits, so vote away and enjoy.
