The 15 Most Iconic Girl Jams of the 90's

If you were a young girl in the 90’s, we guarantee you jammed out to these ~amazing~ songs. Let’s take a step back in time to remember these iconic hits:

Sk8er Boi - Avril Lavigne

Girls all around the world were wearing hats backwards and spiked bracelets because Avril so understand our pop punk, angsty hearts.

Don’t Cha - The Pussycat Dolls

Admit it, we all wanted to be as hot and as perfect as Nicole Scherzinger. When our heartthrob dated the popular girl and we were all like, “as if!” *cue Clueless hair flip*

I’m Like A Bird - Nelly Furtado

When our mom sent us to our room and we would blast this because, “ugh mom, you just don’t understand. I’m practically an adult”

Milkshake - Kelis

We ALL knew what “milkshake” really meant and thought it was this amazing inside joke between us teens. But tbh, none of us had the “milkshake” to back it up, even if we thought we did.

My Humps - The Black Eyed Peas

On that note, we really wished our Abercrombie jeans would look like Fergie’s butt in them. Fergie was God’s gift to us. End of story. Like who else was even in the Black Eyed Peas?

Soak Up The Sun - Sheryl Crow

The beach. The guitar. The wind softly flowing through her hair. We were obsessed. Also, Hilary Duff’s new song totally copied it. Can you not?

Crazy In Love - Beyonce & Jay-Z

Can we say power couple? Seriously, when this song came out, we knew love was real and eternal. Everyone wanted a Jay-Z to her Beyonce.

Wannabe - Spice Girls

AHHH TELL ME WHATCHA YOU WHATCHA REALLY REALLY WANT. But, seriously, once we eventually found out this was about sex, we thought about it a lot differently.

Say My Name - Destiny’s Child

Before Beyonce was our Queen B, she was part of the *fiercest* girl group and we definitely belted this song out in our weird, pubescent voices every time we heard it.

No Scrubs - TLC

Speaking of iconic girl groups, TLC is a national treasure and so was this song. Every time a jerk would come up to our #girlsquad (before we knew what that was) back in the day we’d be all like “we don’t want no scrubs” * snaps in Z-formation *

...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears

Oh Britney. Every girl wanted to be her and every girl definitely wore this outfit for Halloween to piss off her parents because, obviously.

Come Clean - Hilary Duff

Metamorphosis was on repeat in every girl’s portable CD player. Hilary Duff was no longer Lizzie McGuire and she just understood us and our angst.

Don’t Speak - No Doubt

Oh Gwen, back in your glory days. Every girl wanted to be as ska and as cool as Gwen effortlessly was. We need that queen in our life again. COME BACK.

Waterfalls - TLC

Who doesn’t remember this iconic video?! TLC never disappointed and even boys knew every word to this song.

Genie In a Bottle - Christina Aguilera

Helllllllo sexuality. This was when we first started seeing ourselves as sexual beings and Christina was our girl power HERO.


Obviously, this is not a complete list, but we think we got pretty close.
