To me, there’s nothing hotter than a chick who rocks out.  Here are my all-time favorite rock babes.


Pat Benatar:  One of the best of the late 70’s and 80’s.  Started a unique look that I can’t say was all bad.

Exene Cervenka (X):  Hasn’t aged too well over the years, but she was ubercool in the 80’s.

Kim Deal (The Pixies, The Breeders):  Not classically beautiful by any means, but she’s in the goddammed Pixies, fer crissake.

Tammy Ealom (Dressy Bessy):  Cute retro look.

Yoshiko Fujiyama (The’s):  Anyone who knows me at all knows I have to include a token hot Asian chick.

Debbie Harry (Blondie):  Ah, the hours spent fantasizing over the Parallel Lines album cover…

P.J. Harvey:  This woman is pure sexuality.

Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles):  Grrr.  What a babe.  But why did she always look away from the camera in the videos?

Mary Huff (Southern Culture on the Skids):  A sexy southern belle.  And anyone who can keep a heavy wig on in a 98-degree room is a-okay in my book.

Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders):  The epitome of cool.  And what a voice.

Joan Jett (The Runaways, The Blackhearts):  Leather and attitude go a long way.

Janis Joplin:  A drunken slut, to be sure, but the woman had some unbelievable pipes.

Manda Marble (Manda & The Marbles):  Another pop-punk cutie.

Bif Naked:  Weird-looking, but ass-kicking vocals.

Kelly Ogden (The Dollyrots):  Perfect voice and chops for pop-punk.  What Avril Lavigne wishes she were.

Liz Phair:  More a talented songwriter than a balls-out rocker.  Still, she’s a super-hot Chicago gal.

Kate Pierson (The B-52s):  A knockout with that 60’s look.

Kim Shattuck (The Pandoras, The Muffs):  Probably my favorite.  Snotty, raucous and cute…and can scream like a banshee.  Sadly, I only got to see her perform once.

Patty Smith:  Unshaved body hair aside, she was weird before weird was fashionable.

Gwen Stefani (No Doubt):  If you don’t think Gwen is hot you need a swift kick upside the head.

Poly Styrene (X-Ray Spex):  Great early punker. I love it when she screams, “up yours!”

Ruyter Suys (Nashville Pussy):  Blonde, big boobs, crunching guitar, and never stops moving onstage.  What more could you ask for?

Meg White (White Stripes):  The very definition of “ugly hot,” but man, she can pound the skins.

Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Gos):  I’d take a vacation with her anyday…and I wouldn’t keep my lips sealed.

Nancy Wilson (Heart):  Fantastic guitar player.  She’s now pushing 60 and is still hot.
