recommend me: angry girly music!

Hi,

So I need some new tunes to listen to, and I'm sick of four white guys moaning about their girlfriends and existential angst. I want something big and angry but TUNEFUL and also ROCKTASTIC with female singers.

I'm not fond of the wailing angsty types like Within Temptation, I'm talking more in the vein of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, etc

Other music I like:

Muse
The Arcade Fire
Kasabian (sort of)
Death Cab for Cutie
NIN
Rasputina (major props to ANYONE knows who that is haha)
Disturbed
Foo Fighters
RHCP

And a fair bit of 90s music, Counting Crows, The Cure, early blink 182...etc.

So, who is awesome?

    Mine seem obvious, but someone's got to say them! If you've already considered them, just ignore.

    Patti Smith. (Especially her version of Gloria, which genuinely offended my auntie. Yay!).

    PJ Harvey. Try listening to 50ft Queenie, Rid of Me and Mansize - not her best, IMO, but they're the ones that came to mind reading your specification.

    Probably not what you're looking for, but I wouldn't get in a fight with Nina Simone. She could knock me over just by singing at me.

    Siouxie. I think it's fun, not angsty. Juju is a great album.

    The Breeders. Don't know them well, but I like what I've heard.

    Bjork isn't rock and usually isn't angry, but she's loud, playful, she's in your face and she isn't the joke people seem to think she is. Then again, she's pretty much the definition of wailing so your mileage may vary. ;)

    And I'm following a personl mission here, but I heart The Knife. The female singer has a loveable voice. They also did Heartbeats.

    Second for Veruca Salt, particularly the second album, "Eight Arms to Hold You". Their first album "American Thighs" is also good. There are additional records released under the band name, but one of the two founders left the band after the second album, and I haven't been that impressed with what I've heard since then.

    I was coming into this thread just to recommend Lacuna Coil but it looks like others have beaten me to it. Maybe you should give The Gathering a try?

    Before I clicked that link I thought the name of the band was actually "But I Heart The Knife" which would possibly be the best band name ever. I just had to listen to their song after seeing a name like that.

    Ah, angry girly music. Rock on.

    PJ Harvey is the queen, as far as I'm concerned. Check out Dry and Rid of Me, two of her earlier albums. Veruca Salt is awesome, Tori Amos can have some of that quiet, seething anger going on, and some of Amy Winehouse's stuff is pretty angry albeit with a bluesy feel.

    If you're willing to listen to foreign music, check out Natalia y la Forquetina and Bebe. Especially Bebe. Spanish lyrics, but the emotions come across pretty well even if you don't understand the words.

    Also, OP, good call on the Rasputina. How We Quit the Forest is one of my all time favorite albums.

    Le Tigre and Sleater-Kinney are required listening for angry women.

    Especially the former. Nothing says "I hate men" like actually hating men.

    Some Sonic Youth songs showcase Kim Deal being pretty mean. You might like The Duke Spirit as well.

    Beyond that, um... Four Non-Blondes? The Cranberries?

    And their guns, and their bombs, in our heads, IN OUR HEADS THEY ARE FIGHTING!
