Ace for kids.
Three female shop assistants from the South Bronx.
Les Calamités - ripped off by The Primitives allegedly.
Girls that rock. Well you did ask and seeing as they have not yet been mentioned:
Girls can rock, I played for some years in a rock/heavy metal band, playing bass and doing vocals, also the lead guitarist was female (we as a band didn't care what gender people were, so it was never a 'thing' that the band was half female, that was just how it was, you want people who can play well and can turn up for gigs and enjoy playing, not based on having a particular set of genitalia - it doesn't need to be a 'girl' band, or a 'boy' band, you can just be a group of people of whatever gender who like to play music together). We never got famous or anything, but we had a bit of a local following and earned money doing gigs.
Misty Miller FTW
Escaping from bands with just vocalists, creative duos, vehicles and so on...
Rebel Girl for sure. Number one. Just play her that - it's all in that one song.
I would have chosen Decaptacon, but it's got a swear word right in the middle, so not really ideal.
Often not considered as being really rockin', but Stutter was full on fantastic:
If you want something from right now, then there's No Ditching.
Betty Davis - None more funk.
Lucy Bogan - none more rude. Very very rude. In 1935.
I don't think anyone's mentioned very-old-school punks Vice Squad on this thread yet. Becky Bondage still going strong
Oh my, if you're looking for a rockin' Betty...
This lot really rocked when I saw them
not sure if a band fronted by three men is really the evidence of rocking women that the thread is looking for tbh.
All of this was my immediate thought when I saw this, but also:
(Edit: Missed that when I scanned the thread. But so good it's worth putting in twice. <3 Kathleen Hannah.)
and latterly, Chvrches (which isn't 'rock', but does kinda rock, and Lauren's amazing all round)
I also missed Kittie:
Le Tigre were an amazing band
No one appears to have said Peaches yet?
Or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
and Joan Armatrading.
I know you don't need me to say this, Bees, but she deserves a mention on the thread: Bjork.
Ill are brilliant. I think they're my Band Of The Year.
