There's a growing popularity of female rock and metal bands and among this uprising of female musicians we also find a group of gals who wanted to pay tribute to their those musicians they see as their heroes.
The best known of these bands: The Iron Maidens, they sound great, they look great…and yes…are they amazing…you bet!
Here is a brief description of a few all-female tribute bands. Enjoy and catch them live for a fun experience.

Girls, Girls, Girls (New York/USA)—The world's first all female Motley Crue cover band. How can I possibly not add this;) Motley Crue being an old favorite, I was surprised and happy to see some girls paying tribute to the Crue and keeping the sleaziness in their style.
