For the past several decadesβ€”female artists have declared their independence, dismantled double standards and empowered women with their music. Enter the "Girl Power Anthem." What better way to celebrate Women's History Month than to honor the women in music who influenced feminist movements, and ultimately pick the greatest girl power anthem of all time.Β 

"No Scrubs" and "Wannabe" are both classics about not settling for less, but one of these songs might be crowned the greatest of the girl power anthems. Which should it be?

Spice Girls are all about girl power and friendship on their iconic debut hit.

Notable lyrics:

If you wanna be my lover
you gotta get with my friends (gotta get with my friends)
Make it last forever friendship never ends
If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.Β 

TLC recorded an anthem for women constantly dealing with "men" who have nothing going for them, and declaring they deserved better than what these "men" could ever offer.Β 

Notable lyrics:

I don't want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me
I don't want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger sideOf his best friend's rideTrying to holla at me
