LOLOL...I was going to post the same thing.
I'd say Joan Jett...
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.... gack... blasphemy.
In times past....
Current contenders for strong female vocalists..
Jenna McDougall from Tonight Alive
Taylor Momsen from Pretty Reckless
My vote goes to Joan Jett.
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 !
As a former American Sasquatch in Germany I would say Doro...but officially I'll say Joan Jett!
One of the best.
Gonna have to go with Janis on this. What a rock n roll voice.
I vote Ann Wilson. She's the most rock n roll, and arguably the best vocalist too.
But only Nena makes me cry
70's: Joan Jett
80's: Kristen Hersh:
90's: Tanya Donelly (Kristen Hersh's half sister and also guitarist in Throwing Muses)
2000's: Tarja Turunen
2010's: Cristina Scabbia:
That walk-Those Legs-That voice
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
Martha Davis (The Motels)
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
Go ask Alice---
Grace Slick with the original Jefferson Airplane
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.
If you guys are counting Freddie, you gotta throw Elton John in there....
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.
