Tori Amos > Kate BushI'm shocked Pat Benatar is not more highly-regarded here. She's my obvious choice. I like PJ Harvey a lot, but Benatar stands head and shoulders above.
Not sure how Tori Amos is suggested here, and especially not with an "/thread" doohickey. You cannot possibly mention Tori Amos without talking about Kate Bush, and the only reason i don't have Bush at #1 is the matter of classifying her as "rock."
