11 Anthems To Remind Us That Girls Rule And Boys Drool
If you’re a 90s baby like myself, you’ll remember that our decade gave birth to some kick-ass jams that showed us girls that we actually rule the world. To this day, I still pump up these tunes on the regular, especially when a fuckboy gets me down. In case you wanted to spruce up your weekly playlist with some new (but actually old) bangers, check out our 10 favs below:
1. “Don’t Call Me Baby” – Madison Avenue
This goes out to all the men who catcall as they walk down the street. No, I am not your baby! Please take a seat and let me through.
2. “Crush” – Jennifer Paige
One of my most favorite songs and reminder to all fuckboys that just because we’re interested doesn’t mean we’re obsessed.
3. “Short Dick Man” – 20 Fingers ft. Gillette
I mean, who does?
4. “No Scrubs” – TLC
No explanation needed. Do you want a scrub?? Cuz I definitely don’t. You tell ’em, TLC.
5. “Just A Girl” – No Doubt
Of course Gwen Stefani has to be on this list. The songs talks about being belittled as a woman and not taken seriously, something I can definitely relate to.
6. “Bitch” – Meredith Brooks
Megababe Meredith Brooks croons that it’s okay to not always be pleasant as a woman and that it’s natural to feels the ups and downs of daily life. Everyone has emotions, okay?
7. “He Wasn’t Man Enough” – Toni Braxton
Toni gets serious as she sings about not worrying about a dude she already dumped. Once you’re gone, you’re gone! Don’t ever forget that.
8. “None Of Your Business” – Salt n’ Pepa
We can do whatever we want whenever we want so mind your own business.
9. “I’m Every Woman” – Whitney Houston
Whitney pays homage to how brilliant woman are. We can literally accomplish anything we set our eyes on accomplishing, don’t even think of trying to hold us back.
10. “No More” – 3LW
What ever happened to 3LW? I was obsessed with this girl group growing up and to this day know all the rap verses to their self-titled album. This song, in particular, is about being fed up with your bae’s shit.
11. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” – Shania Twain
Shania tells it like it is. All she wants to do is go out and have fun with her gal pals and forget about conforming to a sometimes misogynist society.
