Sexiest Girls in Rock
 There’s something cool – and sexy – about a chick who can show a guitar who’s boss, belt out soul-stirring lyrics or own a stage with jaw-dropping dance moves. Here are some of the hottest women who have rocked our world.

Alison Mosshart

She has a tattoo etched in black ink on the heel of her left hand. Factor in life with The Kills and The Dead Weather, and add in her knockout good looks, and it’s clear why she rocks.

Jenny Lewis

Initially an actress who made her professional debut in a Jell-O commercial, she’s known for her work with the bands Rilo Kiley and Jenny and Johnny — oh, and those legs!

Kim Gordon

This musician, vocalist, visual artist, record producer, video director and actress sings and plays bass and guitar in the alternative rock band Sonic Youth, and in Free Kitten with Julia Cafritz

Hayley Williams

Even though it’s spelled differently, her band’s name suggests something sexy. She won Sexiest Female in one poll two years running and we’re in no position to argue.

Katie White

Maybe her sexiness comes from the fact that she grew up on a farm in England. She’s doing something right. The Ting Tings are sometimes associated with this band.

Shirley Manson

This Scottish siren is best known for her work with the band Garbage, but did you know she played a liquid-metal Terminator on this TV show? HOT!

Karen O

Born in South Korea to a Korean mother and Polish father, she was offered the chance to pose nude for this famous magazine, but declined. She was voted WHAT?! by this music magazine.

Gwen Stefani

Voted one of this magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 2002, this rocker is known for showing off her sculpted abs. And now she’s the new face of L’Oreal Cosmetics.

Tal Wilkenfeld

A phenom from Down Under, her bass guitar skill has landed her gigs with this jazz pianist, this Southern rock band and rock legend Jeff Beck.

Emily Haines

This Canadian indie rocker is the daughter of a poet and jazz lyricist. She’s a thinking person’s sexy rock star who was born in a faraway place.

Fiona Apple

She comes from a showbiz family and does not go by her real name. She started playing and writing music at age 12, ditched high school for L.A. four years later, and got the music world’s attention with her first album and a controversial video. She went on to sing with this late country legend.

Grace Slick

She used her good looks as a model before becoming the lead singer of Jefferson Airplane. She became a sex symbol in the ’60s and ranks among the most popular female rock musicians of all time. 

Leslie Feist

This sexy Canadian singer-songwriter has been nominated for five Grammys, is a part of this well-known band, and has recorded with a lot of other musicians, including this Jeff Tweedy band and this singer of “Loser” fame.


She started her career as a lingerie model before becoming a famous ingénue of this artist.  A bona fide sex symbol in the late ’60s and early ’70s, she released several albums, including “Chelsea Girl” and “The Marble Index.”

Ginger Reyes

Best known as the former bassist of the Smashing Pumpkins, this sexy rocker girl who goes by this stage name is off the market. In 2008, she married a keyboardist who played for this sexy rock maven.

Amy Lee

With a style that’s been described as gothic, and killer vocal and musical abilities, it’s no wonder that the music and culture magazine Blender named her one of the sexiest women in rock in 2006.
