* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Music/TheWiggles current line up: Simon, Lachy, Anthony and the only girl, Emma. Sure, she wears a bow in her hair, loves dancing and that stuff, ([[ThatRemindsMeOfASong they even wrote songs about these aspects]]) but being a preschool band/show, it's not that extreme. Plus, Dorothy is the only girl of the Wiggly friends, so it's even on both sides.

* In the banter for the Arrogant Worms song ''Mounted Animal Nature Trail'' they talk about Northern Ontario: "There are thirteen people who live there, all of whom are named Frank. Even the girl."
* In Music/TheProtomen's ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' RockOpera (also known as ''The Protomen''), Dr. Light's girlfriend Emily is the only female character to have lines.
* Bands where male musicians are fronted by a female lead singer: Babe Ruth, for instance, fronted by lion-lunged Jenna Haan.
* Unlike other genres, it is still rare for a hip-hop label to have more than one female rapper at the same time, especially for solo acts. These women generally wind up falling into two roles: hyper-sexualized [[MsFanservice Ms. Fanservices]] (TropeCodifier Music/LilKim, Music/NickiMinaj, Trina, Shawnna, and Olivia for Bad Boy Entertainment, YMCMB, Slip-n-Slide, Disturbing tha Peace, and G-Unit, respectively) or projecting a less sexual OneOfTheBoys image (TropeCodifier MC Lyte, Lady of Rage, Yo-Yo and Da Brat for First Priority, Death Row, Lench Mob and So So Def, respectively). Post-Lil Kim, the former category has become more prominent, though, since the late 90s, more female emcees have found a happy medium between emphasizing their vocal prowess ''and'' sexual expression (former Flipmode artist Rah Digga and Eve, from Ruff Ryders). The one-girl-to-a-team rule has notably been averted by Murder Inc. (who featured Charli Baltimore, Lil' Mo and Vita), and Def Jam which, for a short period during the 2000s hosted Foxy Brown, Lady Sovereign, Unladylike, Shareefa, and Shawnna, simultaneously.
* The Music/JeffersonAirplane, an all-male band fronted by singer GraceSlick.
* The Music/PattiSmith Group: Patti sang and played guitar.
* Rock bands are mostly all men, or have just one female member, who is usually the lead singer. Or the bass player. Subverted with the Christian Rock quartet Music/{{Skillet}} which features two women (the rhythm guitarist and the drummer, respectively).
** Also Music/{{Heart}}, fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson.
* Charlotte Hatherley, ex-guitarist/backing vocalist of Music/{{Ash}} and Kim Gordon, guitarist/bassist/vocalist of Music/SonicYouth, are notable examples of female guitarists in otherwise male bands. In an inverse example, Jim Corr is the only male member of The Corrs, the other members being his sisters.
