List Rules High school cliques from TV shows only (sorry, Plastics from Mean Girls!). Vote up the groups you would most want to be part of.

When it comes to choosing the best TV cliques, the competition is tough. Add high school angst into the mix and things get even crazier. The trademark of a successful hangout show is a group of friends who everyone would love to chill with, even if "chilling" sometimes involves fighting monsters, dealing with gossip, or handling so much drama you’ll have to put your therapist on speed dial. Their lives are generally way more interesting than those of regular teens, so there’s no wonder you’d like a seat at their table. No offense to your current friend group.

The best high school TV cliques allow you to live vicariously through their crazy adventures until you feel like you’re actually part of the gang. The members are relatable, flawed, silly; and their coming of age stories are usually so epic you can’t help but feel just a tiny bit jealous. So which group would you most want to hang out with? Here are the best high school cliques from television. Vote up the ones from your favorite shows!

Not a clique per se, but befriending these two badass chicks would guarantee you’d become fluent in sarcasm by graduation. Lawndale High School may have been a dysfunctional place, but hanging out with Daria and Jane would have at least made those awful teen years more bearable.
