Rock 'n' Roll's Seven Baddest Chicks

Rock 'n' roll is dirty business. It's made of spit and blood and piss and drugs, smeared lipstick and dirty laundry and stale beer. When you're a rock 'n' roller, your hair gets sticky, you smell bad, and you can't remember what day it is.

Some would say it's no place for girls, but some would be sexist idiots. The ladies like to get down and dirty too. And that doesn't mean hiding in the green room, just waiting for a chance to touch a star. Sometimes, in rare and glorious instances, the women break free and take control of the whole tour.

Not enough ladies get the chance to prove they're tough. But these fine women did. Check out Crossfade's seven baddest chicks in rock 'n' roll, and get inspired girlies.
