10. Brody Dalle The vocalist and guitarist of the Distillers and Spinnerette might not go down in the history books as one of the most famous frontwomen of all-time, but anyone who's listened to her work can't doubt how hard she rocks. The woman who started off as Tim Armstrong's Australian girlfriend (and is now Josh Homme's wife) has proven herself to be an awesome frontwoman and a powerful punk rock talent. Dalle opened up being a badass punk rocker to a whole new generation of frontwomen, which was particularly important in the time right before today's feminist movement.

9. Stevie Nicks Although Nicks' career garners mixed reactions from fans and critics alike, there's no doubt about her importance in the music scene of the 1970s. Her heartfelt vocal stylings and songwriting brought Fleetwood Mac to a level of fame, popularity and historical significance they'd never before reached. Plus, how can we not include Nicks after her amazing cameo on the third season of American Horror Story?
