An American lesbian punk singer has topped the NME's annual Cool List.

Beth Ditto, lead singer for Gossip, is the first woman to reach number
one in the magazine's round-up and, compared to previous winners, is an
unknown. Last year’s leader was the Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner, while
Pete Doherty was top in 2004.

Other women making the top 10 are Lily Allen, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah
Yeahs, The Long Blondes' Kate Jackson and Lovefoxxx, of CSS.

Conor McNicholas, NME editor, said: "This year's Cool List is a
testament to the raft of hugely talented women who have taken hold of
the music scene in 2006.

"From Beth to Lily to Karen, they've brought new energy to a scene
dominated by men. They're also living proof that you can still rock a
crowd when you're wearing stilettos."

While Turner has now dropped to 32nd place, old-timers Jarvis Cocker
and Thom Yorke have bagged top 10 spots.

The Cool List's top 10:

1. Beth Ditto (The Gossip)
2. Faris Rotter (The Horrors)
3. Lily Allen
4. Jarvis Cocker
5. Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
6. Kieren Webster (The View)
7. Kate Jackson (The Long Blondes)
8. Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)
9. Thom Yorke (Radiohead)
10. Lovefoxxx (CSS)
