About This Quiz

The Spice Girls were (or are, depending on how you look at it) an English girl group that started up back in the mid-nineties. The group was formed by a family management duo who wanted to see the girls be just as or more successful than the boys who were ruling the charts back then. So along came Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Victoria Beckham, then Adams (Posh Spice) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice). Together, those five women became one of the most famous pop bands in the world—their debut album captured the title of best-selling album by a female group in the history of humankind!

Even though they don't make music together anymore (unless they're on tour), their songs are still sung all the time, all over the world. So, you can understand why a quiz about them and their songs is totally necessary. We want to test not only if you remember the hit songs they sang, but the lines that were in some of those songs. Can you prove that you're a true Spice Girls fan and finish the lyrics to some of their songs? Take our Spice Girls lyrics quiz to find out!
