Susie Quattro, Suzanne Vega

Come on guys, don’t make me beg ya

Brittany Howard’s voice like earthquakes

Whatever happened to Alabama Shakes

Where’s Ann & Nancy Wilson

Have a Heart, you’re not very smart excluding them

Joan Jett rocks and shreds guitars

What a woman, she’s gone so far

Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin

Women’s top voices will always win

Egyptian walk sure does jangle

How ‘bout those guitarists from The Bangles

On your poster of male rock legends,

Thanks for Amy Winehouse, but she’s alone

She’d love to share the spotlight

With her sisters of XX chromosomes

So many women, where are they all

Cher and Diana Ross.

Joan Baez and Sister Roseta Tharpe

Tina Turner, Joni Mitchell,

Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks,

Linda Ronstadt, Patti Smith,

Carole King and Christine McVie

Fantastic musicians and so I ask

What more can I say…?
