Who were some popular female rock-and-roll singers of the 1980s?

Answer

Some popular female rock-and-roll singers of the 1980s were Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Tina Turner and Chrissie Hynde. Madonna, Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston also topped the list.

Stevie Nicks rose to fame as a vocalist for Fleetwood Mac before branching off into a successful solo career. Joan Jett was a member of the ensemble band The Runaways before taking taking the lead over her backup band The Blackhearts.

Chrissie Hynde was the lead vocalist for The Pretenders, one of the decade's most popular punk/new wave bands. Tina Turner already had a successful career as an R&B performer before transitioning to rock and roll in the '80s, an unusual shift for an African-American performer to make at the time.
