  • In the banter for The Arrogant Worms song, "Mounted Animal Nature Trail", they imply Northern Ontario contains only one woman: "There are thirteen people who live there, all of whom are named Frank. Even the girl."
  • In The Protomen's Rock Opera album series (based on Mega Man), there's several main male characters, like Dr. Wily, Dr. Light, Mega Man, Protoman, and Joe. The first female lead, Dr. Light's girlfriend, Emily, is introduced for Act III.

  • Jefferson Airplane is a Rock band, which began with six men. While some members left and were replaced, iconic front-woman Grace Slick was introduced in time to be part of the classic line-up, with the release of their 1967 album, Surrealistic Pillow.
  • Sonic Youth is a Rock band consisting of (males) Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Steve Shelley, Mark Ibold, and (female) Kim Gordon.
  • Wolf Alice is fronted by songbird (and occasional screamer) Ellie Rowsell, with Joff Oddie (guitar), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums). Ellie often recognises the fact that she appears to sound more masculine at times, and on tracks like Moaning Lisa Smile, Fluffy, Giant Peach, and (in an extreme example) Yuk Foo, it clearly shows.
