These are the best rock bands fronted by women. The band must have a female singer.  Bonus points for multiple women musicians.  From Blondie to The Bangles to the Go-gos, these are the best girl bands, or bands that have female musicians in them. Specifically these bands have to have female vocalists, and some of these women are the best female vocalists of all time!

There's just something about a female rock band. I'm not talking about sex appeal, I'm talking about the music. When rock music is allowed to soar to it's highest heights with a female vocal range, magic can happen. Only women can really belt out rock the way that it is meant to be belted out That is certainly the case with all of these bands!
