Top 10 Best Girl Groups of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Girls' Generation Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, was formed in South Korea, in 2007. The current members are Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. Jessica left in 2014. They are known as the second best selling girl group of all time, Korea’s National Girl Group, and one of the best girl groups of all time.

They've seriously won a lot of awards, being the first girl group to conquer a male-dominated industry. They became one of the top groups, garnering a massive fan base. It's unbelievable. They even know Katy Perry. Whenever they release a new song, it always tops the iTunes charts. Their fans span across the globe, in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, France, LA, America, and many others. They're just perfect. They have the best personalities. Us fans know them inside out, and they love us as much as we love them. Their concerts are always packed with fans. They are just perfect in so many ways. I recommend you guys find out more about them.

The beauty, style, fashion, and performance of Girls' Generation are remarkable, though they have made some mistakes too. I can still remember the first time I saw their newly released CD, "Genie". At that time, I didn't pay much attention to them because I wasn't into K-pop back then. However, when a friend of mine mentioned that I resembled Yoona a little, I became curious and Googled them. That was the moment I decided to listen to their songs, and I thought, "Why the heck did I just listen to these songs now?!" They've improved in looks, fashion, and overall performance. So, I must admit, SNSD is the best for me! Their down-to-earth and funny personalities are a big plus!

2 Destiny's Child Destiny's Child was an American girl group whose final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.

They have a variety of songs from meaninglessly catchy to very deep. For example, "Check On It" is super catchy and just makes you want to get up and dance! Yet, "Say My Name" is powerful. Their voices sound incredible together, and they have awesome lyrics! "AUTOMOBILLS"

How can Destiny's Child be ranked below Little Mix? Are you MAD?!

I love the group.

3 TLC TLC is an American girl group whose original recording line-up consisted of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas.

I have so much love for TLC. The reason being is that they were unique with their sound, style, and music, but they were also relatable. The songs they make always had a message or story behind them, whether it was from their personal life or someone else's (e.g., Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg, Waterfalls, No Scrubs, American Gold (from their latest self-titled album in case you didn't know)).

Whenever girl groups or sometimes artists are asked about who inspired them, TLC would be one of a few names that would always pop up regarding originality. These responses are not only from groups/artists in the US but also from other countries such as Japan, South Korea, and the UK. From what they have achieved and overcome, TLC has been the blueprint which other groups after them take and follow.

Despite the fact that Left Eye isn't here anymore, T-Boz and Chilli are keeping the legacy alive as well as her presence through their live performances. Though they released their final studio album last year, TLC are not splitting up and are performing for fun and for their fans. As they always say, TLC is FOREVER!

4 Spice Girls The Spice Girls are an English pop girl group formed in 1994. The group consists of Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Mel B (Scary Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice).

I don't understand why everyone is voting for K-pop girl groups when most can't even comprehend the language. This is about the best of all time, not just the 21st century. Before there was SNSD or K-pop in general, there were groups like the Spice Girls and Destiny's Child.

English is the most spoken language in the world, so almost everyone can actually understand what we're saying. I know some people enjoy listening to languages they can't understand because it sounds awesome, even though the song might be silly if you knew the lyrics.

Besides, Spice Girls and Destiny's Child were number one before we even knew K-pop existed.

Yes, I like some K-pop groups, but let's be real. Can they create history worldwide if people don't understand what they're saying? Unless obsessed fans try to learn Korean to comprehend the lyrics.

5 4th Impact

Where can you find another set of four biological sisters who can sing, dance, rap, execute a whistle note, and harmonize perfectly anywhere on the planet? Aside from their amazing talent, professionalism, and unbreakable bond, they are rare gems. Their faith and love of family are as big as their dreams. Dreamers admire them not only for their talent but also for their devotion to their Christian faith, to their family, and to their craft. Their mentality of excellence, hard work, and perseverance in pursuing their dreams is admirable. They don't just entertain. They inspire people. They are the embodiment of the phrase "Never give up on your dreams."

I haven't been a fan of any girl group since the Spice Girls over two decades ago. So, it's safe to say that it takes an incredibly outstanding group of girls to capture my attention. Over two decades' worth of girl groups, and none have captured my heart, until now. The 4th Impact girls are incredibly entertaining. These four pint-sized pop stars produce a sound and perform with a stage presence, swagger, and attitude that you simply cannot imagine, especially coming from such diminutive girls. They are incredibly explosive and an absolute joy to watch perform. Words simply cannot describe their abilities. Take a minute of your day to watch these girls on YouTube. You will not regret it.

6 Little Mix Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Little Mix are my role models. In all their songs, they don't use autotune, and when they sing live, they sound exactly like they do in the studio. Their performances are always on point, and these amazing, beautiful women stun everyone by singing and dancing simultaneously. Moreover, they are extremely kind and down-to-earth. They care about their fans, like me, and definitely put effort into their songs.

Every one of their songs has a meaningful message that really touches the heart. Through their music, they send an overall message to find love, but especially to love and accept your amazing, weird self. Little Mix definitely deserves a lot more credit because they give their best, and it shows to all of their fans.

Little Mix represents the absolute best in the four fundamental aspects of a girl group: vocals, quality, choreography, and chemistry. Each member has a uniquely strong voice, and they all shine through. There is no lead singer, no matter what critics might argue, and that is evident in their songs. They embody top-notch pop music, offering a song for every mood, feeling, and event. Little Mix will literally take you everywhere.

They'll have you wishing you had an ex to flip off in "Shout Out To My Ex". Their performances are no less exemplary: their vocals are as good as, sometimes better than, the studio versions. The synchronized choreography is just the cherry on top of the cake. Although they are not professionally trained dancers, this does not detract from their energy and performance at all. They have the ability to empower an entire crowd.

Lastly, their image is as clean and positive as can be. They serve as role models for young girls and continue to expand their demographic as they mature as artists. They are prominent inspirations for life, love, music, and fashion. These are just some of the reasons why Little Mix is the best girl group of our generation.

7 The Supremes The Supremes were an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s.

The Supremes are the gold standard by which all groups have been measured since the 1960s and '70s. Their music is timeless.

I totally agree that the Jean Terrell years were some of the best - this girl can sing, not just sing, but really sing!

8 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony was an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

Fifth Harmony is the best girl group in the world. They sing and dance during their performances on concert tours and events across the country, but they also perform in other places around the world. Their singing voices are so beautiful and melodious, complemented by their dance moves that entertain audiences on stage.

In addition to their performances, they express their self-esteem and share their thoughts on exterior appearances. They advocate for beliefs like being real, free, brave, and confident within themselves, offering inspiring perspectives. They are beautiful and natural, with their hot exotic looks.

They are the most unique and far better than any other girl groups like them. Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home" became the girl group's first top 10 single. I'm proud of these five girls, and they should be at the top of the list as the #1 best girl group. Proud to be a Harmonizer, and I'm going to keep listening to their songs forever in my heart.

9 The Saturdays The Saturdays are a British girl group who had a massive number 1 single called "What About Us". The group's members are Una, Mollie, Rochelle, Frankie & Vanessa. They have released more than 20 singles and are one of the most popular girl bands on the planet.

The Saturdays are the best girl group because they embody the entire package. They are all gorgeous, full of spunk and character. Besides, they are incredibly talented. They can sing, dance, and write their own tunes. They're also credible musicians, with two members, Una and Mollie, even playing their own instruments. Some of the B-sides they wrote, like I Can't Wait, Not That Kinda Girl, and So Stupid, are, in my opinion, actually better than some of the tracks that made it onto their albums but weren't written by them. May we continue to hear more from The Saturdays for years to come!

The Saturdays are, in my opinion, the five prettiest and most talented girls on earth! They are my all-time favorite girl group. They are such lovely and pleasant girls, having achieved so much in the past four years and still remaining at the top. No offense to other bands, but compared to groups like One Direction and Little Mix, The Saturdays are way ahead in terms of musical talent and looks. This must be true because I'm a Directioner too, but in my opinion, The Saturdays surpass these groups by a thousand times.

10 Pussycat Dolls The Pussycat Dolls are an American girl group formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1995. Originally a burlesque troupe, they transitioned into a music act and gained fame in the mid-2000s with hits like "Don't Cha" and "Buttons." Their music is primarily R&B and pop-oriented, often featuring themes of female empowerment and independence. The Pussycat Dolls have experienced multiple lineup changes... read more

They accomplished so much in so little time! They sold 15 million albums and 40 million singles in just a few years. Love them!

Needs to be Number 1.

I think that they are the best because even though they only made two albums, they are still considered one of the best of all time. They accomplished so much in so little time! 15 million albums and 40 million singles sold in just a few years. Love them!

The Contenders
11 Girls Aloud Girls Aloud was an English-Irish pop girl group, which was created through the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The group comprised singers Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh.

I think they should easily be 1st! To be perfectly honest, Girls Aloud were the band of the decade and still are. It doesn't matter if they have broken up because one thing remains: dedicated Alouders who continue to spread love, support, and unite together to celebrate the success, the drive, and the love from these five gorgeous girls.

How on earth are they below The Saturdays, who are good but not special? Nadine is awesome. They have loads of talent and top ten singles. I know they have split, but they will always be remembered.

They are the best girl group ever! Girls Aloud are not only my cup of tea but everybody's cup of tea! Their first single, Sound of the Underground, hit number 1 in the UK charts! Well done!

12 Atomic Kitten Atomic Kitten are an English pop girl group formed in Liverpool in 1998 whose current members are Liz McClarnon, Natasha Hamilton, and Kerry Katona.

They look so amazing! Love the talented ones!

13 En Vogue

En Vogue - good songs, great harmonies, beautiful talented ladies. Enough said!

14 Bananarama

They are so much better than the others.

15 Salt-N-Pepa Salt-N-Pepa is an American hip hop trio from Queens, New York. The group, consisting of Cheryl James, Sandra Denton and originally Latoya Hanson, who was replaced by Deidra Roper, was formed in 1985 and was one of the first all-female rap groups.

Salt-N-Pepa...wow...they were and still are the most powerful female rap group ever to demand respect, especially in the beginning when rap was such a male-dominated game. Hands down for the queens from Queens.

16 Sugababes The Sugababes are an English girl group, formed in 1998 with founding members Siobhán Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan.

Even though over the years each of the original members left until the final album had three entirely different members, they were ironically more of a group and less of a product than most other girl groups. Ever since, girl groups and boy bands have been seen as the ultimate product of the pop industry, and often rightfully so: a bunch of attractive people who sing songs that were specifically written for them by a bunch of producers, have nice and easy listenable voices, and don't show much personality. But the Sugababes were different.

Not only did they write all their songs themselves, but they also stood for more aware lyrics and often even had a twist in there. They were feminist, sang that they could live a fulfilled life even without a man ("Hole in the Head"), they embraced their own "flaws" ("Ugly"), and even if they made more sexual songs, it's always about how the guys have to make sure that THEY are pleased as women, not the other way around ("Easy") - it always feels as if they are ahead of the game. What I mean is: they had personality, and ultimately, it was THEIR music.

I am stunned they are not higher considering the many big hits and relevance they had before breaking up.

17 2NE1 2NE1 was a South Korean girl group consisting of Bom, Dara, CL, and formerly Minzy. The group was formed by YG Entertainment in 2009.

2NE1 had the best and most memorable debut. They broke the mold set by K-pop for girl groups, emerging as the most badass group that sings about women's empowerment and setting the bar high. Their voices and styles are so unique that no one else can compare to them. This distinctiveness works for them because it made people take notice, and now other girl groups are following in 2NE1's footsteps (or trying to, anyway).

Their songs consistently topped the charts, and I believe they are still the number one girl group with the most digital sales in K-pop. And their live performances? Absolutely sickening. Flawless. Besides BIGBANG, no other group can put on a show like 2NE1. It's magical. They are the best.

They debuted only a few years ago but have accomplished so much in such a short time. Not to mention that they sing mostly in Korean or Japanese, but they are now being recognized all over the world. These four amazing girls don't need revealing clothes or controversial songs. Their vocals, dancing skills, live performances, stage presence, and incredible songs speak for themselves.

18 The Runaways

They're better than the girl-power-pop that's up above them. I think that's all I really need to say. If you're not voting for them because you haven't heard them, go listen to "Cherry Bomb" on YouTube. I'm sure it'll change your opinion.

The Runaways is undoubtedly the best female band ever! Maybe they didn't last too long, but "Cherry Bomb" and "I Love Playing With Fire" are my favorite songs. Vote for them!

The creators of female punk! Love them. They deserve to be in the top ten because they started girl bands. The Saturdays are ranked higher than The Runaways. What is happening?

19 Xscape
20 t.A.T.u.

Lifesavers, I've heard them called. I know their unique music makes me happy, and their accents are adorable. Lena Katina is just about the sweetest angel, trying to help children in Japan affected by the Tsunami.

They are so awesome. It's really cool that they are a couple. It's the first time I've seen a lesbian couple become so successful in the music industry.

Awesome voices. They proved it's cool to be different.

21 SWV
22 The Pointer Sisters

The Pointer Sisters should be ranked either #1 or #2. Their voices are incredible, both together and solo. The harmonies are unbelievable, and the leads are very strong. They have covered many different types of music - pop, dance, R&B, jazz, country - and all have been done extremely well. They also sound great live, as someone who has seen them six times can attest! Both critically and commercially successful (just check out the multi-platinum Break Out from 1984), in my opinion, The Pointer Sisters just cannot be beaten.

Hands down the most vocally talented and diverse female group ever. Their harmonies were incredible. They basically had four lead singers and had gold and platinum hits with each sister singing lead. They could sing jazz, funk, country, pop, or rock. YouTube them. Their rehearsal videos are better than most of today's female vocalists.

They should be much higher on this list!

23 The Ronettes
24 Martha and the Vandellas
25 Dixie Chicks The Chicks, formerly known as the Dixie Chicks, is an American country and folk band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1989. The group gained prominence in the late '90s with a series of chart-topping albums and singles. Known for their strong vocal harmonies and socially conscious lyrics, they became one of the best-selling female bands of all time. The Chicks gained renewed attention in the 2000s for their... read more
