Paragraph
Girl groups are the DistaffCounterpart of {{boy band}}s. These ladies will generally be attractive and may sing in suitably {{Stripperiffic}} outfits. While girl groups have a predominantly female fan base, they do have a sizable number of male fans, a sharp contrast to a boy band's almost all-female fan base. In other words, girls want to be them, boys want to sleep with them. Although girls groups typically aren't as massive as {{boy band}}s, they have stayed relatively popular over the years outside of the US. However, boy bands have made a comeback and, although One Direction are far ahead of any girl group, the rest of the market is mostly on an equal level to the girls.

* The RiotGrrrl movement in TheNineties was an offshoot of PunkRock that was defined by its staunch feminist messages and lyrics. Bands included Music/BikiniKill, Sleater-Kinney, Heavens to Betsy, Huggy Bear and Bratmobile. Only Sleater-Kinney survived the scene, and they did so by drastically changing their sound around the 1997 release of ''Dig Me Out'' and arguably [[GrowTheBeard got better because of it]].

* Music/FifthHarmony, akin to Little Mix, but on the American version of X Factor. Like the British 4-piece, this 5 member girl group was formed by producers, encountered name changes (originally [=LYLAS=] and 1432), and also love doing acoustic covers like Cimorelli above. Unlike LM, however, 5H faced the bottom 2 twice on their way to the final, and finished 3rd. Their debut album (the EP titled ''Better Together'') debuted at #6 on the Billboard charts, becoming the highest charting debut by an act from the X Factor US. They're easily the most successful act produced by the US version of that show.

* Music/AtomicKitten.
to:
* Music/AtomicKitten. A British trio who weren't exactly stars but were reasonably successful - with three number one singles in the UK.
