    In that case have a look on YouTube for mr rock and roll and this is the life. They're her two biggest singles.

    It's not my type of music but I really like both her albums. She's the sole songwriter and main guitarist, considering she wrote the first album at 17 I think it's a great achievement. I love it when an independent songwriter makes it big without having the label dictate the songs, style and fashion.

    Here's a great rock tune by Verucla Salt:



    This Letters To Cleo song is another good rock tune:



    Elastica (my liking of the song does not condone the use of a bunch of naked dudes sitting around in the video):



    Garbage (and Shirley Manson is gorgeous):



    This one from The Primitives is more Pop, but still fun:

    Why stick to "female" songs?


    Neither of these are, but the women doing them make them work--

    I remember seeing a band with a female singer cover Mudhoney's Touch Me Im Sick. It was brilliant and has always stuck with me. Sometimes it can be good to go for something unexpected.

    I think you should check out Portions for Foxes by Rilo Kiley and then the ten zillion other cools songs Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett recorded.
