In the case of rock music, there were actually a few girl rock bands in the 80s; for example, Vixen and Girlschool. But rock and metal is pretty much male; some people group girl bands and singers that aren't actually rock in the genre, which gets on my nerves. Avril Lavigne is not rock, and neither is Amy Winehouse. Both started off as pop, but changed their images to make more money; plus their music isn't rock music.
