I recently had a conversation with a male friend in which he insisted that the hottest rocker chick would beat out the hottest female model any day, even bodacious Kate Upton. Whether you agree with that statement or not, you have to agree that there is something magnetic about seeing a beautiful confident woman in charge on stage.

Rolling Stone
magazine recognizes this, and is dedicating an entire upcoming issue to "Women Who Rock." To go along with the issue, they created a playlist of their favorite female musicians including a wide range of ladies, from classics like Janis Joplin to newcomers like Florence Welch. Check out their list and tell us who your favorite rocker chick is... I know you have one!

ROLLINGSTONE.COM reports:
Rolling Stone readers will decide whether Delta Rae, Dev, Karmin, Rita Ora, Rye Rye or Sleeper Agent will be featured as part of the upcoming Women Who Rock issue.

    As far old school Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Blondie, then Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne,. More current Otep, Lady Gaga, Amy Lee from Evanscence and Definitely Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil.

    Lady Gaga isn't rock she's dance/pop. But I can agree with the awesome rocking of Otep, Amy Lee and Cristina Scabbia.

    I don't understand how she didn't make the list, She rocks a lot harder then then some of the others on the list. But that could be the problem, they might consider her metal more then rock.
  • Zombie ... Chancy9... 2012/07/19 15:50:20

    Well, she is metal, but she does rock hard and almost all of her songs have a deep message in them, that should count for something.

    I have always liked Pat Benetar. She will always be the best. My runner up is Ann Wilson of Heart. Ann should have made your list I guess she is just an other to you.

    Seriously? Are trying to put Lady Gaga in the same vicinity as Janis Joplin, Joan Jett and etc? Mate, what did you smoke/snort/shoot? I want some too.

    Lady Gaga is Dance/Pop, so she doesn't belong on a Rock list.

    Half the women on this list don't even belong on a rocker chick list. Where is Chrissie Hynde? If you don't rock a guitar, you are not a chick rocker. Plain and simple (IMO.)

    There are only a few on this list who rock (Jett, Joplin, Benatar and Nicks) the rest are pretenders and not worth my time but I have to ask, WHERE THE HELL IS THE WILSON SISTERS!!! Good God Rolling Stone, you must be Stoned to leave them out.

    My Favorites in this Order.
    Jett
    Benatar
    Heart
    Nicks
    Joplin

    Blondie, a rocker. Gloria, she's awesome, I've been on the same stage with her but she's not a rocker. She's good people too.

    How can Gwen or Pink be in a catagory of "Rocker Chicks" (even tho I think Pink is ok)? Do they mean chicks who "rock" (as in cool) or chicks who are considered "Rockstars"? I'm so confused. I hate hearing of people like Rihanna or Lady Gaga being labeled Rockstars when they are in fact NOT!! They are pop singers. Nothing about them actually rocks. I just don't get the word. Definition of rockstar is: a famous singer of rock music. Not Rap, R'n'B, Pop or Soul singers. I notice a lot of rappers saying they're Rockstars too.... NO!

    I should have chose Joan Jett tho. She's legit... Courtney too even tho I don't like her.

    Sorry for the rant everyone =)

    It didn't say "Rocker Chicks". It was "Women who Rock" (using rock as a verb).

    I don't see why Gwen can't be? She grew up through the LA punk scene around the time of dub/reggae influence. She did work with bands like Sublime, and early work with No Doubt has a very punk/reggae feel. Only in the later years of her career did she go poppier.

    I think they are reffering to the No Doubt period of Gwen Stefani.
