Gender is a social construct. I happen to identify at least half of these singers as female.

Morrissey
Kurt cobain
Brett Anderson
Frank black
Sam Cooke
Jerry Garcia
Rufus wainwright
Johnny Whitney
Graham parsons
Marilyn Manson

Lots of runner ups who at a different moment could be in there like Evan dando Alex chillton etc

I forgot one.
Merle Haggard, for at least one song:
White Line Fever. :paranoid:

The typo in the name Michael Stripe reminded me. :)

Ha, ha, that's my typo for you!
But I am glad you like it for mentioning his name twice!
He deserves it!

Weird question. If a singer made a bunch of music as a male then got a sex change and started to identify as a female and continued to make music does that mean that the past albums are now considered to have been made by a female singer. What would be the right thing to say. Against me, fronted by Laura Jane grace formally Tom, came to mind when thinking of singers and it just made me curious. If I said they were made by a man since she was Tom then would that be a faux pas in lgbt circles
