Guys love hot rock chicks. There’s just something special about a girl that can look good while sounding mean. There are plenty of guys that play musical instruments, but when a girl hauls off and rips out a guitar solo, it’ll stop you in your tracks. It doesn’t even have to be hard rock, though. sometimes we just need to hear a girl’s voice. Girls don’t just look prettier than guys; they sound a whole lot better than dudes do, too. Let’s consider some of the finest rock chicks out there. For girls that have rocked, and are about to rock, we salute you!
Gwen Stefani made a name for herself as the leader of No Doubt. While with that band, this pretty girl mainly sang new wave and ska songs and set young alt-rock fanboy’s hearts fluttering with her wild platinum-blonde energy. But as a solo artist, she expanded to the pop and R&B realm. These days, she’s married to Bush’s singer Gavin Rossdale and raises kids. However, she’s still one of the prettiest girls around.
Zooey Deschanel of She & Him
Sure, Zooey Deschanel is cute girl on TV and in movies. But have you heard her sing? Her indie rock credibility gets a boost from her geek chic style, and that’s on top of the fact that she actually has a voice. Sure, she could be auto-tuned to death, but when you look like her, does it really matter?
Emily Haines of Metric
Metric is a smart, synth-pop duo in the vein of nerd favorites like Freezepop. Emily Haines fronts the group with her intelligent cuteness, and her style harkens back to the birth of the grunge culture, when girls were still feminine with a sarcastic edge. Her smartness adds to her hotness, of that you can be sure!
Liz Phair is kind of best kept secret on this list. She’s more popular with the alternative rock crowd thanks to songs like “Supernova” although she’s ventured out into the pop realm of late. She’s tough and she’s not afraid to do whatever she wants to do. She writes smart songs, sings well and can rock on guitar.
Katie White of The Ting Tings
Katie White and The Ting Tings are stars of the British scene with her combination of dance, rock and pop. Her British accent is beyond-belief cute , and her kitschy style makes her pretty much impossible not to love.
Hayley Williams of Paramore
Hayley Williams really is Paramore these days, with much of the band leaving (or being fired), depending on who you believe. It really doesn’t matter who is behind her though, because she’s the main drawing card. Her vocal talent is formidable, but you can’t argue that Williams is very easy on the eyes.
Sharin Foo of The Ravonettes
Sharin Foo fronts this Swedish duo with power and cool. The Ravonettes have a sound that is sort of retro, and Sharin’s sharp and severe looks compliment that sound perfectly.
