  2. Patti Smith

    Patti Smith

    Patti's career spans generations. She now is one of the most highly respected female artists alive.

  3. Joan Jett

    Joan Jett

    Joan just produced a film based on her first band called, "The Runaways," which happened to be the first all girl rock band in history.

  4. Courtney Love

    Courtney Love

    Whether you Love Love or Hate Love, Courtney has led a crazy life completely saturated by rock music.

  5. Alanis Morissette

    Alanis Morissette

    Alanis's album "Jagged Little Pill" was on everyone's stereo in the 90's. Her brand of angry grunge music with a woman's touch gave her a place in rock history.

  6. Fiona Apple

    Fiona Apple

    Fiona is a crazy, piano-playing rock machine. I don't think anyone could match her intense energy when she's playing her music.

  7. Avril Lavigne

    Avril Lavigne

    Avril brought rock back to the teen girls. You've got to respect her brand of High School drama rock.

  8. Karen O

    Karen O

    Karen O is most popular in the indie rock, hipster scene. She is the front woman for the band "The Yeah Yeah Yeahs," and her original sound and fierce vocals make her an instant legend.

Like in most fields, women have had to fight their way to the top of rock and roll stardom. I made this slideshow to feature some of the best and most popular female rock stars. Tell me who you think is the greatest.

    I don't like female singers...I don't know what it is about them. BUT when Alanis Morrisette came out, I couldn't turn away. She is my favorite. I also have been partial to Avril Lavigne.
