    Fact of the matter is, I'm always going to vote for the underdogs.

    So I guess I don't really care who the popular choices for "Queen of Rock" are.... :eek: gack... blasphemy.

    In times past....

    Back when Rock and Roll was actually worth listening too. I admit that I'm a homophobe, but Freddy Mercury could bust out some mean songs ! Miss you Freddy !

    I vote Ann Wilson. She's the most rock n roll, and arguably the best vocalist too.

    That walk-Those Legs-That voice:wavespin:
    Pat Benetar had/has the "The Walk" that could/still can stop traffic and that video was the second seen on opening night of MTV in 81'

    IMO she is the Queen but she has some great company

    Stevie Nicks
    Ann Wilson
    Lita Ford
    Martha Davis (The Motels)
    Joan Jett
    Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders)
    Shirley Bassey( she sang a lot of the Bond movie opening songs and has one helluva voice)
    Almost forgot Blondie "Call me"
    Tina Turner Didn't hurt that she did Mad Max either

    OK. I didn't consider Freddy. Let's leave her out of this. I'm talking the true first pioneer of lady rock.

    I'd have to say Ann at this point.

    Let's talk time lines.

    Turned 15 in 1980, met my wife in '89. This thread has been a great walk through the years between. Whenever I see this stuff though, I always have to ask myself; "did we really dress like that?"

    +1 on Grace Slick, finally. But I wouldn't disagree with Janis, Joan Jett or Patti Smith.

    Since this thread has gone so far off the rails I'll just post this really cool Gretchen Wilson cover of Heart's Barracuda.



    Hope you enjoy.
