10 and 1 - Women Who Rock (Australian Edition)

Chrissy Amphlett

Women Who Rock (Australian Edition)

A lady who knows how to rock is a pretty swell kinda lady in my book. I know 'swell' isn't the most rock-savvy term to use, but gosh-darn it, I'm saying it's swell. Australia saw a steady increase in the numbers of female rockers flying our flag in the 90s, with many emerging amongst the post-grunge music landscape in the middle of the decade. There might not have been dozens (or even a dozen) gaining notoriety, but it was still a huge increase from the miniscule sisterhood rockin' the stage in the 70s and 80s. In today's 10 and 1, I salute ten Aussie women who can rock a stage with the best of them. Secretly, I'm doing this because if just one young girl reads this and finds herself inspired to pick up a guitar instead of enrolling in Havana Brown and Ricki-Lee's 'Dance School 4 Ho's,' the world will be a better place. And isn't that why we bloggers blog in the first place? To make the world a better place? Haha... no. No it's not. Ten of the greatest Australian female rockers of all-time and one lady from down under who's only association with 'rock' is via The Grateful Dead t-shirt she wears, thinking it's that super popular television show everyone's talking about. Enjoy!

It was either her or Ricki-Lee, so I guess I sorta-spoiled it during the intro. Anyway, nothing says 'I ROCK' more than buying heaps of shoes and luring the man of your dreams (who works in a shoe store?) to a roof top party through some sort of weird shoe map so you can dance for his pleasure. Nothing at all.
