Top 100 Girl Groups/Bands: 81-100

Dear Poptastic Readers,

I thought it would be fun to make a Top 20 list of my favourite all-girl groups/bands. But then I thought it would be fun to ask the other writers/contributors and before I knew it I had 15 people (besides me) sending in their lists. Everyone's #1 choice got 20 points, and their #20 choice got 1 point. If there were any ties (not many), I broke them. Before I knew it, we had over 100 girl groups listed. Now we have the Top 100 Girl Group/Band list. Today, we will give you the bottom 20 — #81-100, plus an honorable mention. Enjoy the list!

Special thanks to Raoni, Nick, Ally, Jason, Ted, Denny, Norm, Craig, Anthony, JT, Jef, Nico, Pascal, Mike, and Arturo.

Honorable Mention — Lananeeneenoonoo: This British trio was made up of comedians Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, and Kathy Burke in 1989. They were a parody group of Bananarama. They sang a cover of "Jimmy Mack" and were even featured on Bananarama's remake of "Help!" — which went to #2 in UK and all proceeds went to Comedy Relief.

100. Strawberry Switchblade: This Scottish duo is best known for their 1985 UK hit "Since Yesterday."
