This week we asked for your top 10 female fronted bands ever. It's a tough contest, since there's so many great options. But as usual, UG readers delivered the goods - so who made the final top 10?
Elizabeth "Lzzy" Hale started performing with her brother Arejay when they were just 13 and 10 years old; they went on to sign Halestorm to Atlantic Records in 2005 and continue their hard-touring lifestyle with up to 250 shows per year. Good effort.
Debbie Harry is surely the template for all punk rock rock vixens to come after her. The band might have been a big hit in countries like the UK and Australia, but were relatively unknown in the US where they toured as jut another underground band - until the release of "Parallel Lines" which flung them into music history.
8. Jefferson Airplane
San Fransisco wasn't even on the radar of music fanatics in the '60s until this band landed. They've had a huge roster of musicians in their line up and various singers, but it was Grace Slick whose sweet soaring vocals made them a household name.
Another band who have been through the motions with various singers, which started with soprano Tarja Turunen. Last year Anette Olzen wasn't happy when her illness led to the band quickly finding replacement singers for a tour only days later. "I don't think it's a good decision they made and I'm sorry for those of you who came to see the whole band but got something else," she said at the time.
6. Lacuna Coil
Christina Scabbia front this Italian metal act who play with harmonies between Christina and fellow vocalist Andrea Derro. The formula proves to be a big international hit - they're sold over 2 million records worldwide.
5. Fleetwood Mac
Stevie Nicks continues to be heralded as one of the greatest voices in rock history. She recently collaborated with Dave Grohl and friends as part of the Sound City documentary and soundtrack, and every generation of female singers since have cited her as an influence.
4. Arch Enemy
Swedish bands know death metal more than most, and weed-loving singer Angela Gossow who joined the lineup in late 2000 is no exception. Their aggressive sound is almost tame compared to her occasionally devastating vocal work.
3. No Doubt
Gwen Stefani is more than just a rock icon. She's carved a career in fashion, pop and even the media, but it's with her breakthrough act No Doubt that she and her fellow bandmates made their name. It's a shame their comeback in 2012 flopped - let's hope their next effort hits the mark.
2. The Cranberries
The Irsih sure know about classic songwriting. Singer Dolores O'Riordan and the rest of the Cranberries lineup are a shining arm of '90s music, and despite a split in 2003 they regrouped six years later and continue to perform.
Singer Ann Wilson and her sister Nancy are the only stable figures in the Heart lineup. Even though their career has swayed over the years, included a near disappearance in the '80s, their influence is undeniable; 30 million worldwide sales is a surefire way to put a stamp on history. And this week they're your winners!
That's the end of our results. What do you think? How would you tweak it? Let us know in the comments.
