It's been over two decades since the Spice Girls made their debut, but almost every 90s kid still has at least one of the group's tracks on their playlist. Even if you don't, you can't help but belt out "Tell me what you want, what you really really want" every single time "Wannabe" comes on.

The iconic British girl group embodied everything that the decade was about, and released songs that were quintessential 90s. Their success and charm a.k.a Spice Mania saw no limit, with critics even comparing them to The Beatles.

Following the success of their debut album, Spice, the pop group released a movie and their second album, Spiceworld, in 1997, and it sold over 20 million copies worldwide. It spawned plenty of singles that proved the girls weren't just one-hit wonders and they were here to stay.

Spiceworld also gave us the gem that is the wild and catchy "Spice Up Your Life," an anthem for 90s kids all over the world. The song, which the girls wanted to be a "song for the world," incorporated dance pop and Latin influenced beats, and drew influences from Bollywood films. It didn't receive critical acclaim like the group's previous singles did, but fans (who are the ones that really matter) couldn't get enough of it.

The futuristic music video was inspired by the 1982 Blade Runner movie, and it perfectly complemented the charmingly chaotic tune, which was recorded as quickly as possible in between filming scenes for the group's movie, Spice World.

However, there's one thing about the song that even the most loyal fans may not know.

Turns out the lyrics we've been singing this whole time allegedly mean something entirely different than we thought.
