Favorite Female-Fronted Bands Part 2

1. Garbage

Garbage's music is not garbage. With 7 grammy nominations and numerous hit singles such as "Special" and "Stupid Girl", the band is fronted by Shirley Manson and includes drummer/producer Butch Vig, who produced Nirvana's Nevermind and Smashing Pumpkin's Siamese Dream. They peaked shortly after their debut and kept the hit albums flowing throughout the 90s, and after a hiatus and greatest hits compilation entitled Beautiful Garbage, the band is back together.

2. Blondie

This band was probably an influence to many of the others on my lists of female-fronted bands. Fronted by Debbie Harry, Blondie reached fame and success in the late 70's with the 1978 album Parallel Lines that was driven by the hit single "Heart Of Glass". Parallel Lines was declared platinum and Blondie went on to have many more hit singles and 2 more platinum albums in the U.S.

3. Sixpence None The Richer

You have to love the late 90s sensation that performed the unforgettable hits "Kiss Me", and the covers "There She Goes" and in 2002, "Don't Dream Its Over." They play music that makes you smile, and their songs have receieved plenty of movie and television synchronization because of it. They released a greatest hits compilation in 2004.

4. The Cranberries

Wonderful band from Ireland fronted by Dolores O'Riordan. They produced many great hits, though they are mostly known for the single "Zombie". The Cranberries have been on hiatus since 2003.
