hey, does anyone else like chick rock? my cousin asked me to play guitar in her band so I decided to check it out and she gave me a list of stuff that she wanted to sing. IMO it kicks ass!

Examples:

Cranberries
Song Originally Written by Toronto
Toronto

theres some obvious ones like Heart and Pat Benetar but there are some real gems like The Cranberries and Toronto. Post your favourite chick rock bands and such here!

PS: Girl singers also rock because you can play alot of Rush and Led Zepp

EDIT: like the band heavily features chicks

When I first read the title I read it as chink rock. But I'm not wearing my glasses so ...

I am loving the song "I Shot John Lennon" by the Cranberries right now. Actually most music I've been listening to lately is I guess you could call 'chick rock'

none of the bands above are all female, but they heavily feature chicks which is close enough

Every Chris Rock joke:"I'm black!"...

Just because a band has girls in it doesn't necessarily make it chick rock IMO.

e.g the donnas are chick rock, but er... can't think of an example. Why is the music industry dominated by males?!

because girls stay in the kitchen?


sorry, had to do it lol

but really, its because most of the bands that last are good rock bands like Black Sabbath and AC/DC which are male dominant.

girls are usually featured in pop bands like... black eyed peas or something? pop bands get old fast, die out = more males

I thought it about it actually, and I think it's because women's voices are usually in the higher register, which isn't as appealing to us aurally.

I hate answering my own questions...

isnt there this band called like Letterbombs to chleo or something like that, my sister was real into them and theyre pretty damn good. theyre a punk band kind of.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Bikini Kill

no no reason why it's male dominated is because women don't have chesthair, russian Olypic competitors do, but they don't make music though.

Chest hair = metal

chicks = soft containers of milk

Chick rock? That's not even a genre of music. You don't call Led Zepplin or AC/DC "dude rock", so why do you call a band that has a chick "chick rock"?
