'''Atomic Kitten''', dubbed "The Kittens" by their fans, were an English GirlGroup that formed towards the end of the 90s as an obvious attempt to cash in on the growing Girl Group craze. They had three members to start off with - Natasha Hamilton, Liz [=McClarnon=] and Kerry Katona. Initially Heidi Range was set to be in the band in Natasha's place but left due to artistic differences and later joined the Music/{{Sugababes}}. Katona also left the band in 2000 and was replaced by Jenny Frost who stayed with the band until the split.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first three singles are very at odds with their later image. Sexually suggestive lyrics, aggressively upbeat songs and an overall sound that was very 90s and bubblegum. With the success of "Whole Again" they tweaked their image to become less SpiceGirls and more mellow overall.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: A notable aversion for a GirlGroup. The girls were always dressed modestly enough and even when they wore revealing outfits in their videos, they weren't that exposed. Though they certainly blurred the line with the video for "If You Come To Me".

* AmazonBrigade/ GirlyBruiser: They took up kick-boxing as a way of keeping fit for their Greatest Hits Tour.

Added DiffLines:

* HufflepuffHouse: Ironically, although Natasha was pushed as the lead singer early on, she was the one most likely to miss public events or gigs. Jenny and Liz were usually always there, whereas they have said that Natasha's commitments slipped when she became a mother for the first time.

* ActorAllusion: In a "Behind The Scenes" feature on the tour which Jenny hosted, she could be seen drawing a moustache on a picture of Natasha. A rather sly allusion to the tension between them at the time.



* DyeHard: Natasha, a natural redhead dyed her hair both blonde and later black before allowing her natural red to come through just before the split. Liz, a natural brunette, became blonde at the end of ''Right Now''.



* ThePeteBest: Kerry. Then subverted when she's the most well-known these days, though it's more due to scandal than anything else.



* RetroactiveRecognition: Jenny became more well-known as the presenter of ''Series/SnogMarryAvoid'' after the band split.

* ImportantHaircut: Natasha dyed her hair black after she gave birth to her first son. Jenny cutting her hair into a bob was also to distinguish her from the other two as she feared they all looked too similar. Putting extensions in before their Greatest Hits Tour was also a last minute one. See SuspiciouslySimilarOutfit below.

* SuspiciouslySimilarOutfit: At a photoshoot in 2004, Natasha showed up with a new hairstyle - a blonde bob nearly identical to Jenny's. As a result Jenny had to rapidly have extensions put in so they wouldn't look the same.

* SexySoakedShirt: Subverted. The "If You Come To Me" video has a section with the Kittens in the rain so viewers might expect them to get wet but it doesn't affect their outfits.

* TheThreeFacesOfEve: Liz was the Child, Natasha the Mother and Jenny the Seductress.

* NoHitWonder: The girls were successful but they certainly wouldn't be as remembered as The Spice Girls, Girls Aloud or The Sugababes.

Added DiffLines:

* ReTool: "Whole Again" gave the girls more success than their previous singles so they gave themselves a GirlinessUpgrade and shifted away from power ballads and disco dance music towards softer SweetDreamsFuel style songs.
