If one is to name the first woman to successfully headline a major rock band in the U.S., it would have to be Queen Latifah. But since there are no official records or official information about this, we will have to depend on the stage names and performances that the band used during their time of existence. The band that made a name for themselves as Queen Latifah, or as they were then called, The Temptations, actually went by the name Back To You. When they changed their stage names, they decided to go back to their original name.
Another notable act in the all-women Los Angeles-based band lo-ball group that also had a short stage name was The Lizzie Oxenford Band.
