100 Greatest Women in Music

Last week on VH1, they had a weeklong special called the 100 greatest women in music. As you can see, the list sucked ass only because the public voted for those artists. I decided to create my own list. Keep in mind that this list applies to my taste in music. I cover many genres of music. Much to my surprise, creating my own list of my 100 greatest women in music proved to be a pain in the ass. After nearly a week of working on my list, I finally finished it. So enjoy!
