7. Danity Kane
Diddy-created, US reality show winners Danity Kane reigned in girl group divadom across the pond as the subjects of the third series of the music mogul's show, Making the Band.
Show Stopper was their 2006 debut single but the ladies only lasted until 2008 when all manner of scandal led to their disbandment before their third album could be completed.
The band became the first female group in Billboard history to have their first two albums debut at the top of the charts and Welcome to the Dollhouse is one of writer Tina's favourite sassy, girly pop LPs ever.

Sorry to say the best girl band to date. Was in fact Bananarama. Whilst they did not have a UK number 1, they have had the most hit singles for an original line up and are in the Guinness book of records beating the legendary Supremes!
They was the original Girl Power and marketed themselves, managed themselves, and was not a put together group like all the acts listed above.
Just did a quick check on the net !!!
Do all you UK guys realise that if you go to MSN USA they are allowed to comment on EVERY STORY !!!
Not just the tittle tattle bubble gum crap that we get stuffed with ???
SEEMS WE ARE NOT ALLOWED THE SAME FREEDOM OF SPEECH AS AMERICAN'S
What a load of crap..! Little Mix. LOL.. Girl bands. LOL ..Just a load of talentless wonders or as they say in chav land " Ma liddle moofins" as we all know bands play instruments, plastic girl groups mime to cover songs . What a legacy for any young person to look up to , the year of the girl band ..! More like the day the music died..!
To everyone questioning why Little Mix are on the list - they're not. The intro text quite clearly says "Little Mix and co will have a long way to go before they emulate the top girl bands of the last two decades"
They are heading up the piece because MSN predicted that 2012 will be the year of the girl band based on their X Factor success.
To people complaining about the absence of the Supremes, Shangrilas etc..., this is a list of girl bands of the last 20 years. Although you could make an argument that Bananarama should be here (and many people have), their first single was 30 years ago.
And finally, to all the complaints about these all being 'manufactured' bands, so what? The phrase 'girl band', in the sense that it's the female equivalent of 'boy band', refers to a genre made up largely (although not entirely) of groups put together by managers.
You don't have to have written, produced, or indeed played a note to make good pop music. Ask Elvis Presley.
Hi MSN, I completely have to disagree with your list .... next time just run a poll to actually capture the MSN's user views and then research the top 10 in those results.
Also, please get someone to monitor these comments - i feel sorry for those under 18 who read these things getting sex shoved into their faces because someone cant be bothered to remove inappropriate comments.
Finally, Little Mix ... Honestly, how can you make the top twenty when they have only existed 2 months!!!!
How many of these 'Girl Bands' actually wrote their own music, played the instruments or produced the track.....umm none.
What a load of sh.te. Tina Hart, you're an idiot with a desperation for good journalism but still couldn't find your own head with two hands.
Well done to all those who have commented about the severe lack of Bananarama in this article. I would also like to add The Supremes and The Shangri-Las.
I’d like to think that the excellent L7, Babes In Toyland, The Runaways, Girlschool, The Slits and The Donnas would be a little insulted to be thrown in to a list dominated by manufactured drivel. What’s that you say? Women. Playing guitars and writing their own songs? Whatever next?!
