I am a big fan of music and Rolling Stone knows their music as well. I tend to prefer the generic pop music and and don’t normally care for much that was famous before my time. That doesn’t mean I can’t (or don’t) appreciate great music, even if it’s not what I would typically be into.
There are some songs that you just can’t beat — like Respect by Aretha Franklin or You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette that you know will be rocked out to no matter how old the song gets.
Rolling stone but together their “Women Who Rock” list of the top 50 women albums of all time. There were some on there I was surprised to see and others that totally made sense. A great collection of awesome music that are all done by women!
Click through for a highlight of 10 moms who made the list of “women who rock”:
Alanis Morissette 1 of 10Album: Jagged Little Pill, 1995

She came screaming into the scene with her rocker voice and sensual lyrics.
Salt ‘n Pepa 2 of 10Album: Hot, Cool & Vicious, 1986

I still sing one of the hit songs from this album out loud every time I hear someone say 'push it'.

She left the Fugees to do her own thing and this album proved even more how much talent she has.
