The Spice Girls’ "Wannabe" Turns 20 Today: 20 Ways It Changed Pop Culture Forever

Get ready to feel really old. “Wannabe,” that pivotal and venerable song from the Spice Girls was released 20 years ago today.
20.
The jam that still occupies hearts and minds today was the girl band’s very first single. They swooped onto the scene in July 1996 in all their platformed and eyeshadowed glory, singing about getting with their future, forgetting their past and everything in between.
“Wannabe” was an instant hit, debuting at number three on the UK charts before hitting the top spot the following week and staying there for another seven. The song also went on to hit number one in almost 40 countries, and it became the biggest-selling debut single by a female group.
