Top 40 right here!

40. Shampoo: This UK duo is best known for their song "Trouble." It is worth mentioning that their 1995 album (and song) was called "Girl Power" ... and that was before the Spice Girls came along!

39. Solid HarmoniE: This British group had some moderate success with songs like "I'll Be There For You" and "I Want You To Want Me" in the late 90s.

38. The Honeyz: This group from the UK had hits in the late 90s like "Finally Found", "End Of The Line", and "Love Of A Lifetime."

35. Pussycat Dolls: This American group had massive hit with "Don't Cha" in 2005. Other hits included "Stickwitu" and "Buttons." Although a group, it seemed like a vehicle for main vocalist Nicole Scherzinger to launch her solo career.

34. Shillelagh Sisters: This English Rockabilly group released two singles in 1984 called "Give Me My Freedom" and "Passion Fruit." They were even on TV performing "These Boots Were Made For Walking." Lead singer Jacquie O'Sullivan would go on to be a member of Bananarama, as well as a little disco duo with Paul Simper called Slippry Feet. Read Davearama's interview with Jacquie here.

33. Martha and the Vandellas: This iconic group released music in the 60s and 70s, but most of their hits were in the 60s like "(Love Is Like A) Heatwave""Dancing In The Street""Nowhere To Run", and "I'm Ready For Love."
