7 Girl Groups That Could've Been Destiny's Child...But Weren't

Hey guys, remember the '90s? They were a simpler time, when our outfits (and our socks!) never had to match; our Friday nights were best spent with the Tanners, the Winslows, and the Lambert/Fosters; and Beyoncé actually was a single lady. Besides the totally mind-blowing yet probably cancer-causing snacks (Gogurt! Kudos! Lunchables!), our most precious memories of the decade consist of none other than pop music. No matter how cool we all claim to be today, we can't deny there was at least one group/song/lead singer that moved us to tears as we belted the lyrics in our overly-postered bedrooms.
While most '90s children (both literal and spiritual identifiers) solidly belong to one boy-band camp or another, here at R29 we're all about the girl power — so, we're taking a trip down memory lane with our favorite girl groups. And, no, we're not talking Destiny's Child or TLC, here — we're reminiscing about those one-hit wonders who never made it past their 15 minutes. So, ladies leave your men at home and come on this journey with us.
