Female rock bands

I'm loving evarose (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRHBYeTlIyU) and Haim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dtIjyG9gTg) at the moment. Has anyone else got any suggestions for good all female (or female fronted rock bands)?

I love Die So Fluid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=561xjnfadWs . I also love the Nymphs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5GcHoeQb8U but they're not together anymore and Feline http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBKqYoQ1nRU (Grog from Die So Fluids earlier band) and I'm also a big Siouxsie and the Banshees fan.

All-female: The Two Funerals. They're more punk though.
Female-fronted: Thalarion... if you like gothic metal. Tongue
I don't listen to regular rock so I can't really suggest anything particularly helpful, sorry.

I'm going classic with the Go-Go's!

Girl bands are my Favorite!
Female fronted - Yeah Yeah Yeahs (My #1 favorite band ever), No Doubt, Starfucker (Not the techno band, you have to search a little closer for them), Santigold.
All girls - Escala (This wonderful rock string quartet), Tegan and Sarah, My band: Dragons Blood,

Some of my favorite female-fronted rock bands are Evanescence, Paramore (closer to alternative but still really good), Flyleaf, Fireflight, and Halestorm. All of these bands have great music and amazing female lead singers. Hope I helped!

The Plasticines, The Runaways, The Blackhearts. I don't listen to many female rock bands actually.

All these suggestions are great! I have heard of a couple of them. I do listen to a lot of paramore but I'm not so keen on their new stuff as well as Kenotia (not together anymore) and circa survive. Evanescence of course are classic. I stumbled onto Halestorm on spotify the otherday, by accident, I'll have to give them another listen.

@Hella I watched the runways film a couple of months ago and thought it was really cool. My cousin has Joan Jett's I love rock and roll on vinyl, from when she was a teen : )

@Mel I do quite like the yeah yeah yeahs. Do you ever listen to the subways? (Theres a girl in the band although I think the male frontman does quite a bit of the singing too). The joy formidable are also good, I saw them live in Jan. Defo will check out the rock string quartet.

I listen to so many male bands and singers I sometimes like get sick of boys moaning about girls or showing off, I just want listen to kick-ass female singers instead.

My favourite female single is Janis Joplin. She has an incredible voice and songs as well!

More?? Doro Peach, the frontwoman of Warlock, Crucified Barbara, Vixen, Patti Smith, Susan Tedeschi (great guitarrist), and of course the women already mentioned.

Women Rock!

Hole, The Horrorpops, The Dresden Dolls and Amanda Palmer.

Oh and No Doubt of course.

Libby: I totally agree with you on the new Paramore music. Their old style was so much more unique, and now they're losing their originality. I feel the same way about Evanescence, too. Of course, both bands have a few really good songs on their newer albums, but it's just not the same as their older stuff.

Sammantha - I've been meaning to listen to Amanda Palmer as I've heard about her and so glad I did Happy I've just been watching her TED talk and felt so inspired that I then started listening to her.

There's one band called Cherri Bomb. They used to be all-girls, but their frontwoman recently quit. The bassist filled in and they got a male guitarist. They're pretty good.

Emilie Autumn is a solo artist, but her music is incredible. She is a singer, violinist, and song-writer with amazing talent. Definitely give her a try if you haven't already heard of her.
