For the past several decades—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.


Spice Girls' "Wannabe" won over TLC's "No Scrubs" in the first round. Kelly's "Miss Independent" crushed Destiny's Child's "Independent Women." 

Now it's "Wannabe" versus "Miss Independent" in the second round of our Best Girl Power Anthem bracket. 


Notable lyrics of "Wannabe"

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.

Notable lyrics of "Miss Independent"

Miss independent
Miss self-sufficient
Miss keep your distance
Miss unafraid
Miss out of my way
Miss don't let a man interfere, no
Miss on her own
Miss almost grown
Miss never let a man help her off her throne
So, by keeping her heart protected
She'd never ever feel rejected
Little miss apprehensive
Said ooh, she fell in love
