Boys say, Girls say.....

[color=royal blue]The other day I was thinkin'

WORLD: o no.

And I said to myself, 'self......why is it that the majority of bands are either fronted by or composed mainly of Men?' If there are girls, most of them are in the pop scene or something. What is it? Do boys just form bands more?

I am not one of those extreme feminists....I was just lookin at my CD collection the other day and wonderin' this.

Most female singers perform by themselves and then there are just lots of male bands.......most pop bands have both male and female singers tho...who knows why there are more males in bands....im not complainin

Your thread titles has got no doubt in my head "hey baby hey baby hey"

That's a good question.

Many men don't mind a woman frontperson or an all-girl band and enjoy listening to it.

Many men find a woman frontperson or all-girl bands to be the musical equivalent of a "Chick Flick."

Thus, the all-girl bands quite often have to develop a schtick or they get lost in the slipstream.


just my .02.

Well.... the only female bands I can think of ever having liked are Hole. And look what happened to them. I dunno. I have no answers.
I personally have always preferred male bands/singers over women, but have acquired a share of female favourites over the last ten years. It's a tough call.
We still live in a man's world.

I'm going to admit that I'm a total hypocrite and come clean with the fact that although I'm very much for girl power, I generally enjoy male voices more than female. So my personal music collection is definitely skewed.

Sure, there are lot's of female singers, just no bands.

Maybe the answer comes down to the fact that women generally don't get along as easily as men do. Maybe four powerful women can't stand being close like that.

I don't feckin know. You are talking to someone who's friends are mostly men.

[color=royal blue]Well I know they exist but I just think it's weird that the boys out number 'em o_O I don't know.

The point about voices is good; I didn't think about that.

I disagree, but that is just me. I find female lead singers in a band and female bands to be at least the equal of male bands. I look at it more on the front of do I like the music, not that it is a female so it is too chick flick like. But that is me.

i think that there are a lot of girl groups but they break up easily. think about how much more catty girls are than guys. i mean, a girl group would have to be extra tough to be around as long as u2...think about being with your friends for ever. 24 hours a day. i'd puke.

just an addition:

patty smith
blondie
the corrs
tina and the b-sides
siouxie and the banshees
the go-gos
bananarama
carole king
janis joplin
fleetwood mac
natalie merchant
jewel *shudder*

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Garbage and their dynamic frontwoman, Shirley Manson.
