Need help compiling a good rock/pop mix cd with female singers.

Now i have already made one, but lets just say one look will show that my taste in female oriented rock/pop music is in the toilet. (and no i am not cottingon in disquise)

1.Hollaback Girl Gwen Stefani
2.When I Grow Up Garbage
3.Take Me Away Avril Lavigne
4.Don't Speak No Doubt
5.Why Do You Love Me Garbage
6.Since U Been Gone Kelly Clarkson
7.Push It Garbage
8.Rich Yeah Yeah Yeahs
9.Most Girls Pink
10.Sex Is Not the Enemy Garbage
11.Wake Up Hillary Duff
12.Overprotected (The Darkchild Remix) Britney Spears
13.I Think I'm Paranoid Garbage
14.Together Avril Lavigne
15.Our Lips are Sealed Hillary and Hailie Duff (I didn't even know this was a cover before somone told me it was)
16.Bad Boyfriend Garbage
17.Gigantic The Pixies
18.Special Garbage
19.Who's that Girl (accoustic) Hillary Duff
20.Allison The Pixies
21.Undernieth Your Clothes live Shakira
22.Fly Hillary Duff
23.Bleed Like Me Garbage

I made it like due to the fact that this is mainly all i have, so help getting a more variety would be helpful (hell even some female metalcore would be great.)

Check out the Donnas.

Kelly Osbourne (first album only. Everyone hates it, but I don't think they've heard it. Great poppy/garagey/guitar rock)
The Muffs

Velocity Girl could slip in there very easy.

Check out "Elevator Love Song" or "Ageless Beauty" from the Stars.

Celebrate You, Shutterbug, Shimmer Like A Girl, One Last Time, by Veruca Salt
Only When I Sleep, Rain, Confidence For Quiet, Runaway by The Corrs
Spoon by Cibo Matto
Skintight by The Donnas
I Wanna Be With You by Mandy Moore
Before I'm Dead by kidneythieves

And don't shy away from Shakira's spanish records, they are all easily better than the english record she put out. In fact, her latest, Fijacion Oral vol.1 is her best record to date. So check out Obtener Un Si and Lo Imprescindible

Here's a few random suggestions not mentioned yet (both artists and songs/albums):

Lush: "Ladykillers", "Undertow"
Alanis Morrisette: Jagged Little Pill (you can't tell me you don't have this?)
Republica: "Ready to Go"
The Go-Gos: "Our Lips are Sealed", "We Got the Beat", "Vacation" (I think the first song will sound familiar)
Evanescence: Fallen
Concrete Blonde: Bloodletting, Mexican Moon
Heather Nova: Siren
Amanda Ghost: Ghost Stories

There are tons of others, especially if you go off into "Lilith Fair"-style folk-rockers, or 80s pop, classic rock, punk. There's lots of good suggestions here -- give some of these a shot and you might like something. Who knows, some of them may even be better than Hilary Duff?

If you like pixies: Breeders, Belly.

Track down a singer called Marisa Monte and find her version of Pale Blue Eyes. It's catchy in a good way

I was going to suggest Republica as well. Rock/pop/dance mixed into one, without being annoying.

I'd suggest you pick up the best of collections of both Tori Amos and also the Cranberries, two of my favorite artists. I'm also a big fan of Chantal Kreviazuk and Natalie Imbruglia. You'll recognize Chantal's musical style since she wrote half of Avril's new album.

You might want to listen to the Go-Gos, you have a cover of one of their songs. Have you heard the original?

I think we're alone now - Tiffany (a cover of the '70s band The Rubinoos)

And give a listen to:
Ciega, Sordomunda - Shakira

Cuidate - La Oreja de Van Gogh

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) - Eurythmics

Kids in America - Kim Wilde
