i'm thinking Alison Mosshart, as i'm currently enjoying The Dead Weather
or Kim Deal, or Kim Gordon or Dolly Parton
Shes amazing <3
no competition. Sexiest women in Rock and the most stylish too.
No, no room for La Roux on the list sorry.
Dead singers are cooler than La Roux.
In the not-so-knowingly-cool category
apparently she's absolutely lost it nowadays. a member of dead prez said, 'you will have a better chance of seeing Osama Bin Laden and Bush in Starbucks having a latte, discussing foreign policies, before there will be a Fugees reunion '
she looks like a blow up doll there
dunno if any of them counts as a singer though, or even music.
they cover up their shiteness with an illusion of 'cool' and 'hip'
from the noisettes. Feisty.
Linda from Prolapse
and i really love her, in a probably quite unhealthy way, I'm not sure she's that cool. i think my vote would go to Kim Deal
Lil Kim? ;-)
People only seem to think I mean Gordon or Deal when I say that. There's so many good Kims in popular music
is the only possible answer !
that it's anyone other than Kriegtalith, vocalist with Kyrgyzstan's legendary black metal titans, Darkestrah
except she has a cock drawn on her head
the 5 coolest women in music
Honey is Cool, The Knife, Fever Ray
Fucking love her
she's cold! saw fever ray live the other night, she was hypnotic and amazing between the lasers.
1960's Nina Simone
1970's Debbie Harry
1980's Exene Cervenka
1990's Jennifer Herrema/PJ Harvey
I was laid up for weeks, so I was.
I'd also add Patti Smith to that list and possibly even Caithlin De Marrais
Karin Andersson is pretty cool too
oh yes it is
from Life Without Buildings
she seems pretty lovely.
lovely-EST female singer?.. J Newsom
on both counts. good effort.
Cool. Ice cold.
Contemporary-wise, I'd have to think about it. Natasha Kahn comes to mind, but maybe that's just cos I was listening to 2 Suns. Cat Power, maybe. Not Karen O. I like her, but no.
or Martha Wainwright. I love them both a little.
Meg White < pretty genuine, is her 'coolness'
I forget her real name.
Also - Keeks from PRE. She's my hero.
Great name, great voice
the knife, au revoir simone, portisheadlady
Apart from her:
Debbie Harry in her day was supercool
Karen O, saw her at the barrowlands a few years ago and fell in love
Patience from The Grates see above.
from forget cassettes.
the girl from metric, i forget her name. both amazing voices and very cool without trying.
from yesteryear Blondie
Lindsay Lohan for me.
Serious answer. She rocks man.
kathleen hanna wins all.
just the way I like it.
But Sarah Negahdari from The Happy Hollows is a close second. Emily Haines, Bjork, Charlotte Hatherley are all great and there is STILL love for 90's Louise Wener. Ahhh, fuck off.
Alison Mosshart, Sarah Negahdari from The Happy Hollows, Bjork..
Telling me I hadn't posted when I had. Now I look slightly silly.
Bjork, Cat Power, Natasha Khan, Josephine Foster, Emmy The Great, Alessi's Ark and PJ Harvey are all very cool ladies too.
though I agree with lots of the names above I would have to say Karen O, because with her it seems natural, absolutely effortless.
that kid is cool.
and debbie harry
its even in the name!
beautiful voice.billie holliday is also amazing
Erykah Badu, Eleanor Friedberger and M.I.A. for runner-ups.
based on tonight, i'd say the tiny blonde one in dirty projectors. her voice is AWESOME.
Kathleen Hanna otherwise.
...to all these answers. quite obvious answers (kim gordon, pj harvey, bjork, etc.)
only one mention of cat power? she rules.
andrea zollo (pretty girls make graves, r.i.p.)
shara worden (my brightest diamond)
amy millan (stars)
annie clark (st. vincent)
victoria legrand (beach house)
corin tucker (sleater-kinney)
Glacial NY Cool goes to Idano from Glass Candy
Punk As Fuck Cool goes to Kathleen Hanna
Mad as a bag of Frogs Cool goes to Bjork
I could go on, but I won’t.
Ritzy from The Joy Formidable
the laydeez of school of seven bells are declared the winners, as they scored double on the looks front which made up for them being good, but not as good musically as some of the other bands mentioned above.
mentioned jenny lewis?
Regina Spektor. She's so cool it hurts.
Jody Holland is good too
i forgot Jenny Lewis, deliberately so.. she just isn't that cool anymore.. si she?
Also i forgot Justine Frischmann
She's still Number 1 in my 'People to marry' list.
I'd marry her too and I'm a straight girl! What a fox...
JENNIFER HERREMA is the coooooolest singer of the1990's -2000's hands down! Alison Mosshart is a poseur! chk. where she rips all her moves from in the NY Times! http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/16/arts/music/16dead.html?_r=1
Kate Jackson formerly of Longon Blondes.
