Not Even Ten

My friend and I were trying to brainstorm a list of rock bands that have been mostly male but with a female lead singer. We couldn't even come up with ten. This came up because she was watching the new season of Rock Star on CBS where singers compete to be the lead singer for Supernova, a band of alpha male rockers like Tommy Lee and a few others that I can't remember. So, this is what we came up with...
  • The Pretenders
  • No Doubt
  • Heart
  • Jefferson Airplane
  • Fleetwood Mac (they are debatable since two of the three singers were women)
  • Blondie
Can you think of any more?

Garbage (Shirley Manson)
The Cranberries (Delores O'Riordan)
10,000 Maniacs (Natalie Merchant)

Would any of those work?

Hole with Courtney Love
I am pretty sure that the band was male when I was at their concert, although not positive!
