There were so many great names to pick from. I selected recognizable women who have made significant footprints in the "rock music" world (be that alternative, folk, hard, metal, new wave, punk...). I was on the fence about Aretha Franklin... she was in. She was out. She was in. She was out.
What do you think? Discuss amongst yourselves.
I'm off to dig up my Runaways album.

Can't believe I didn't recognise Stevie Nicks. Very nice quiz, though I'm sure there'll be some people who'll balk at the inclusion of Avril Lavigne.
Jul 17th, 2012 at 21:23 GMT
Enjoyed it! As you said, many great names to pick from. If you need an alternate, I suggest Kim Deal.
Jul 17th, 2012 at 22:02 GMT
If you're not going to accept Heart, you should at least have an answer come up saying 'you need the actual names' when 'Heart' is typed in - or just get a photo of one of them to avoid confusion. Good quiz outside of that.

Avril Lavigne but no Dusty Springfield?
Jul 17th, 2012 at 22:14 GMT
Shirley Manson would have been an excellent choice too.
Jul 18th, 2012 at 02:46 GMT
Thanks for the input. I was blinded by my love for Canadian women. While Avril has contributed substantially to modern female rock trends, she hasn't been around long enough to be fair to the others on this list. And she's been a little "poppy" recently. Sold out? Not yet, but time will tell.
I've swapped her out for a glaring oversight! (thanks Nikkidemas!)
@leviper, both excellent suggestions, but I only have so much room. Perhaps a sequel is in order, depending on how this one does.

I cannot resist a quiz with beamed eighth notes in the title.
Jul 18th, 2012 at 15:35 GMT
Alannah Myles ? meh... As she done anything beside her one hit ? Same more or less for Crow, but she seems more known at least. Bjork should be in there, maybe Fiona Apple and Cat Power too. Good quiz anyway !
Jul 18th, 2012 at 15:37 GMT
@Perhaps a sequel is in order: Tracy Chapman and/or Siouxsie Sioux would fit in quite nicely :)
Jul 18th, 2012 at 17:17 GMT
@Nassim: Sheryl Crow's had 10 Top 40 hits in the US. Hardly a one-hit wonder. But I'm with you on Alannah Myles.
Jul 18th, 2012 at 17:44 GMT
I bow to the power of the people (and fully agree). Sorry Alannah. But "I've still got this thing for you".
@rockgolf: ♫ Thanks for the pick ♫ I'll remember that tip! ♫

Some of these are a stretch to call "Rock n' Roll" IMO - Tori Amos? Ani Difranco? Carly Simon? More pop than rock though I guess it's a slight distinction. I'd suggest Liz Phair, Fiona Apple, Kathleen Hanna, Karen O, Shirley Manson, the Sleater-Kinnery girls (Corin Tucker & Carrie Brownstein), Brody Dalle, Paz Lenchantin, and the biggest omission of all - KIM GORDON!
Jul 18th, 2012 at 21:46 GMT
Agree Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell, Marianne Faithful not properly 'Rock'. Certainly not at the expense of Bonnie Tyler, Suzi Quatro, Kim McAuliffe, the Millington sisters, even Toyah.
Jul 18th, 2012 at 22:42 GMT
Personally I think people like Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Lyn Collins, Marva Whitney, and so forth totally rock but I understand they get labelled with other genres and genre wars are silly. The people here are all good.
Jul 19th, 2012 at 00:00 GMT
I think you should put Alannah Myles back. While she may not be as well known as some, she is definitely a rocker, which Joni Mitchell is not.

Hi im new Sporcle could somebdy please tell me how to make a picture quiz?
Jul 23rd, 2012 at 13:12 GMT
Surprised no one has mentioned Karen O.

@Hacksawm - I did, about 4 comments above yours.
