Before we get too entrenched in the Rock genre of girl bands, I want to give a quick nod to some of the Women of Jazz. These ladies really paved the way for the girl bands of the early Motown era and all girl bands to come.
I can't even begin to do these ladies justice so I suggest you do some research on your own. In my opinion these women are essential in understanding women in modern music, and I have included some of my favorite songs by each.
Billie Holiday (she always has the coolest hairdos)
