Your favorite ALTERNATIVE female music act

Who is your favorite chick who gets loosely term as alternative by the media? Again the poll allows only for 10 options so sorry if your fave ain't on the list.

Sarah McLachlan

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin
