a "girl band" (they did not play instruments) from the United Kingdom that became popular in the mid-90's; their members were commonly called Scary, Sporty, Posh, Ginger & Baby; the Spice Girls' popularity died after Ginger quit and before their third CD dropped; responsible for that goofy movie "Spice World"
The Spice Girls invented the following "girl band" formula:
1) the only one who can actually sing (Scary);
2) the butch
3) the sexy one (Ginger);
4) the "cute 'n' bubbly" one (Baby); and
5) the stuck-up one (Posh).
