As for me, I wouldn't consider Tina Turner "rock," but I would pick her over Benetar as the second choice. The first choice is obvious to all.

Wilson and Benatar (I only voted for Wilson since the poll wasn't set up properly).

I'm also quite fond of Amy Lee, although not a fan of Evanescence's post-Open Door releases.

Best of that list would probably be Ann.  Favorite would be Stevie.  I would list others not on the list, but I'm not sure where you are drawing the rather arbitrary line between rock and metal (not to mention that I find it thoroughly confusing that you are trying to rigidly adhere to the "rock" genre, but then listed Tina Turner), so I'll just stick with what is there.

Just women in rock, metal is excluded.

Who, in your opinion? Pick two.

Id think Barto should be the one to determine. His poll, his rules.

If these rules stand, then I have to change the vote. Started as Ann Wilson and other (Floor Jansen easily my favorite female vocalist), but since After Forever and Nightwish are likely considered more metal, Ill change it if its rock only.

Ann Wilson and Pat Benatar if its only rock.


EDIT wait... the original post says edited by Bosk. Im so confused... haha. DTF is going all Bryan Colangelo on us...

Ann Wilson is a hands down no 1,as I'm sure a lot of us will agree. I'll leave choosing a second for a bit.

Beth Hart her stuff with Joe Bonamassa is awesome, especially live

Wait.... where did my post go? I said only Tina Turner, and possibly Benatar from that list. Oops forgot Ann too. I wouldn't consider anyone else an elite vocalist, though acknowledge they all have their place in rock history.

If this gal is indeed a singer she is in the wrong business.

Ann, duh.

Second is either Johnette Napolitano or Anneke van Giersbergen.

Thank you to the OP for including Joan Jett and Shirley Manson on there, though.   Both excellent and amazing at what they do, just not at Ann's level.   

I am also gleefully elated that there are no votes for Janis Joplin.  Can't stand her singing.

I went with Ann Wilson in the listed, but I got to give a shout out to Lzzy Hale.  Sure, her lyrics are sometimes juvenile at times, but she's got a powerful voice and seeing her and Halestorm live, she can belt those notes effortlessly.  By far, the best modern female rock vocalist going, I feel.

Floor Jansen, Lzzy Hale.  Not all their songs are metal, so I figured what the heck..  :biggrin:
Otherwise, Nancy Wilson and Lita Ford are my two favs on the list..

Funny how that works...I have no idea who PJ Harvey is (other than what I gleaned by quickly googling her to make sure I didn't know who she is).
