Top greatest female rock bands in history according to Fuzz Music Magazine

Fortunately, talented women were eventually able to gain recognition and prove their right to exist and develop in "native male territory".

Cult female-fronted rock bands that deserve attention

Rock - the favourite music genre of millions of people all over the world! And the best part is that every listener will definitely find something to his or her liking in this genre. Tender ballads, rocking anthems, dynamic dance songs, sad lyrics... Rock is also not limited to performers - it's the most popular genre in the world. woman on vocals has been nonsense for a long time. But it wasn't always that way.

Today, this is no surprise to anyone, but in the 70s-80s In the last century, a woman in rock was something extraordinary, unacceptable, ridiculous and ridiculous. In any case, that's what the industry's dominant executives thought (and many male rockers, too, actually). And when girl rock bands burst on to the scene, they were just scoffedand it was very rough. As she told me Joan Jettwho started out as a rhythm guitarist. The Runaways:

"At concerts we were spat at. I would leave the stage and spit would literally drip off me... I would cover my face with my hands and cry - I didn't understand why people were so aggressive against us girls? We can play rock too!"

Joan Jett

Such a reaction was due to the fact that the press was constantly "swaying" the audience negative articles and reviews that make rocker girls look like "talentless fools." And there are plenty of such examples! If you read the interviews of any woman who paved her way to the Olympus of rock in the 70's - 80's, you will see how unfair the industry was to them. So, for example, the guitarist Jennifer Batten constantly listened to inappropriate comments and suggestions about racy photo shoots and the like, and Belinda Carlislewho pushed away from rock and went into popular music, felt like a "puppet" in the hands of producers:

"They were saying, 'Be sexy. You have to be as sexy as you can be!' Only then will they want to listen to you."

And in the days The Go-Go's Fortunately, in the end, talented women were able to gain recognition and prove their right to exist and develop in the world. "ancestral male territory".

The Runaways

The Runaways

One of the most legendary female-fronted rock bands in history is without exaggeration The Runaways. Most likely, you have encountered these daring beauties more than once. Yes, in our country their popularity passed by somehow, mostly they were loved in Japan. But their importance is hard to overestimate, for they opened the gates of rock 'n' roll for the next generations of girls....

Underage, brash, dependent, but talented - The Runaways showed the powers that be in the industry that girls, too. can play rock. Their polished performances were largely a credit to their manager, Kima FoleyHe was the one who literally kept them "on a short leash", forcing them to spend all their free time in the studio. Sometimes he threw objects at them, which only hardened their character. Most importantly, The Runaways' mark on rock history is so deep, at least because some of the members have gone on to become international solo stars.

The Go-Go's

One of the most important groups on our list The Go-Go's also had to face harsh criticism in the pursuit of recognition. The press wrote all sorts of nasty things about them, and - on purpose, of course - tried to "prick" each participant as much as possible. The hardest hit Belinda Carlislewho was singled out as "the chubbiest and most overrated of all the girls."

Amidst the stress, Carlisle began to sink more and more into the into the world of substances. It took her 30 years! She later said that only substances helped her. lose weightthat's why it took her so long to give up on them.

The Bangles

The band has travelled a long way from its origins to the charts, during which time the members have had to come face to face with the caustic attacks. That's what broke them up, though. At the height of their fame, the girls began to have conflictsthat were caused by the press. In particular, only Suzanne Hoffs Hoffs was perceived as a soloist, while the responsibility for the vocals lay with all the members. Of course, nobody liked this reaction of the audience (except Hoffs herself, perhaps).

Formed in the early 80s, it was not until the middle of the decade that the band managed to make a name for themselves. Their biggest hit to this day remains the ballad "Eternal Flame."and subsequently re-recorded by many artists.

Fanny

Well, what's not to be without Fanny?! These are the real ones rock pioneerswho broke down barriers and paved the way for generations of women to follow... It's the greatest women's group ever, at least because it has been first eversigned to a major label.

It was also the first band of its kind to wow audiences on both sides of the Atlantic! It was Fanny who showed industry executives that women in rock were the quite realistically. And that it can really sell. You could say (in modern terms) - they launched a "trend", showed an empty niche that could bring in a very large income. After they achieved global success, a significant part of the managers began an active search for talented girls.
