Alison is perhaps best known by the stage name of “VV” in the garage punk outfit The Kills, where she lent her talents as a seductively brash vocalist, and more recently with The Dead Weather, an indie rock supergroup formed earlier this year by Jack White.
Mosshart’s charisma behind the microphone is without a doubt top-shelf material, and her ability to pull you in with every sultry croon and physically emotive strange presence is undeniable.

As the bassist and co-vocalist for the incredibly influential alt rock group, Sonic Youth, Kim Gordon commands a massive amount of respect from all corners of the rock n' roll community. Her distinct sense of style also helped play a role in what would define the look of punk and indie rock throughout the '90s.

Better known as Karen O, the fiery singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen’s command of the stage is undeniable. Karen’s vocal delivery will often jump from angelic hums to caterwauling screams and back before you even have a chance to realize what just happened.
Her ostentatious fashion sense also helps set her apart from the rest of the pack, and her tendency to use microphones in very suggestive manners during live shows is legendary.
Playboy recently approached her about being on the cover, which Karen refused. But she was quick to add that she might "do it in the future" so we can still at least hold on to hope for the time being.
7. Brody Dalle

The Australian native made a name for herself as the rough-n-ready frontwoman of the punk band The Distillers. Rising to fame in the early 2000s on the success of songs like "Drain the Blood" and her howling vocal delivery:
Brody embodies a lot of what traditional punk rock is all about: tough attitude, tattoos, piercings, and beauty on one’s own terms. She became part of punk rock royalty when she married Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong in 1997. The two would later split, and Dalle is now hitched to Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

Grace rose to fame as the lovely, talented, and slightly crazy singer for Jefferson Airplane. Hitting their stride right alongside the Haight-Ashbury San Francisco psychedelic movement of the 1960s, Jefferson Airplane embodied a lot of what hippie culture was all about. Grace’s contribution to that end seemed to be mostly in the department of run-ins with “The Man.”
Many of these incidents fell under Grace’s own self-made category of “TUI” (Talking Under the Influence) and she was notorious for mouthing off to cops. She also crashed a car on the Golden Gate Bridge while drag racing, allegedly attempted to spike Richard Nixon’s drink with LSD, and as recently as 1994 was arrested for waving a gun around at cops who came onto her property illegally. Now that’s our kind of girl.
