So who's everyones favourite Female rocker/musician? Avril? Ashlee? Chantel? Sheryl? etc...

My favourite is definetlely Sherly Crow. She's a really great singer! She can strum the acoustic good enough for her needs. And she actually has some nice sounding lead guitar in some of her songs. Also her songs are catchy, but also have a little bit of a rock edge to them. And again with her voice she can sing soft and sweetly, or she can get loud and more rockish. Also she writes her songs :)

And you have to sing along with some of her songs (Soak Up The Sun, If it makes you happy). And her cover of Sweet Child Of Mine is better than the original! (I don't care for Axl's singing).

I forgot there's no such thing as women with talent in the music industry. Im ..Im sorry.

I would actually put Sherly Crow under Alternative Rock. I didnt talk about Avril I just suggested her name...it wasnt very seriously either. Did you know there's actually women who write there own music and play there own instruments.

Ah..just thought of another girl I like, and I may be the only one. But I like Courtney Love...I like her voice, she's one of the few Women who really have a hard rock voice.

Tori Amos. I've come to the conclusion that Little Earthquakes is one of the best albums I've ever heard by a singer/songwriter, and although she's been quite erratic over her career, overall she still wins. Other than that, Tarja Turunen from Nightwish, purely because I'm really digging them at the moment and her voice goes really well with power metal.

Amos is definitly an unsung genious. Her voice is just beautiful. Tarja is amazing, too. Grace Slick and Janis Joplin are a step above the rest, though.

Tori Amos is amazing.

Not really rock/metal really, but I also am a huge fan of Norah Jones.

As far as I know, Floor and Mark are not related, they just happen to share the same last name. However, Mark Jansen WAS originally in After Forever, before leaving to form Epica.

Highvoltage, people are not flaming you because you're arguing for female rockers. This thread has actually been done to death, and there are plenty of us who like female musicians. It's the fact that you picked such BAD ones.

Sheryl Crow isn't horrible, but she isn't spectacular, either.

Anyways, my pick is Anneke Van Giersbergen from the Gathering. They're my all-time favorite band, and she is really incredible.

In what way is Amos erratic? I know that she's experimented alot, but thus far I've been pretty consistently impressed with what she's done.

Little Earthquakes is overdone, though. It's a phenomenal album, but it seems like it's the only one that anyone ever talks about around here. IMO Boys for Pele is as good if not better in certain aspects. It's alot more daring and ballsy, and almost completely uncommercial, which is great...I absolutely love "Blood Roses," "Professional Widow," and "Father Lucifer."

Not really a hard rocker voice but one of the few female vocalists I can stand. She's a pretty good song writer too. I like her work in Fleetwood Mac the best.

As soon as you have a girl in your band it's a gimmick or something. Baarrhg. The only bands I listen to that have female instrumentalists only got in because they married the keyboardist

Angela Gassow (Arch Enemy) - better than many of her male counterparts IMO, great enunciation and her style varies to fit the song
Tarja Turunen (Nightwish) - incredible operatic voice, and she sings very artistically
Floor Jensen (After Forever) - awesome classical vocals, and can belt out a Bruce Dickinson line dead on.
Kim Goss (Sinergy) - instead of using classical vocals like many metal female singers, she uses a powerful vocal style that fits in well with the energy of the music.

I guess this would be a good time to ask,does anyone have the Tori Amos cover of Raining Blood?

Det_Nosnip
10-19-2005, 10:17 PM
I thought that The Beekeeper wasn't anywhere near as interesting as some of her earlier work. It was an OK album, but nothing better than average, when she's capable of so much more than that. Strange Little Girls was a bloody amazing concept, but I'm not sure if it worked over the whole album. Bits of it were completely incredible, but other songs on there really didn't do anything for me. Boys for Pele is the only other album by her that really rivals Little Earthquakes. The way that she brought in loads of other instruments really advanced her sound, and I'd say that's another 4.5/5 album. Other than though, I'd say her albums are average to good, without being great.

Eh, fair enough.

Kim Gordon. Her material for Sonic Youth isn't quite as good as Lee Ranaldo's or Thurston Moore's, but when she does kind of 'lighter stuff' ("Cross the Breeze", "Star Power") it's still really good.

Janis Joplin I guess. To tell you the truth, I really don't listen to a lot of female artists/bands/bands with females in them. As far as female vocalists go, well, I don't like female vocalists. And none of the female instrumentalists (as talented as some of them are) impress me that much either. Rock and metal is a man's world, I guess.

Sharon den Adel from Within Temptation. Not only does see have a great voice, but she is the most amazingly beautiful of all female rockers. She is hands down the hottest of all females. Another notable female singer is
Ally French from Bloodlined Calligraphy. She sounds like the chick from Walls of Jericho but more clear.

Staying within the 'rocker' boundary;

- Wata (guitarist for Boris), because she's a really good guitarist (all around). Great in a 'traditional' kind of playing, and she also has great control over drone, feedback and silence.

- Tina Weymouth (bassist for the Talking Heads) because the bass is a big enough part of them to be considered great, and they're an excellent band.
