18 Years Ago Spice Girls Told Us What They Really Really Want

Today marks the 18th anniversary of Spice Girls “Wannabe” which launched the careers of arguably…scratch arguably…THE greatest girl group of all time. The single was released July 8, 1996, back when cassettes were still a thing, so try to not let that make you feel old. As soon as you hear the infamous Scary Spice laugh you know what is about to go down: a full-blown sing-along and pretending to understand what “zig-zig-ah” is all about. So slam your body down and wind it all around with this classic video and take a trip down memory lane with our favorite Spice Girls moments.

The Spice Dolls
No 90’s or early 2000’s pop group was complete without their own custom dolls. The question always remained, do you buy the whole set or are you forced to choose your favorite?
