A one-hit wonder is a music industry term to describe an artist generally known for only one hit single.
By Wikipedia

They are enigmas of the music world.

Jet right on scene, soar to great heights,
achieve lots of success, a single that plays constantly
on the radio, then they fall off the radar.....
never to be heard from again.

One Hit Wonders


It's a shame that their success wasn't consistent,
for they had talent.

But they still acheived their 15 minutes of fame.

And contributed to the music world in their own
unique and fab starting ways.

Some examples of One Hit Wonders....

“Tubthumper” - Chumbawumba (1997)
“MMMBop” - Hanson (1997) -------Marvman hates that damn song
“I’d Walk (500 Miles) - Proclaimers (1993)
“Nothing Compares 2 U” - Sinead O’Connor (1990)
"Achy Breaky Heart" - Billy Ray Cyrus (1992)

Other notable "one hit wonders"....

Baha Men
Crash Test Dummies
Tina Arena
Jet
Vertical Horizon
Smashmouth
50 Cent....yeah a One Hit Wonder....

Who else do you think should
be included?

Rockn.

The hamster song, Boy George, and some other person who made a song I heard, but never found out who made it.

Off Topic, Soulja*, no he doesn't.

One Hit Wonders is also a low life Youtube channel.

50 cent is no way a one hit wonder; he continues to sell albums like crazy, even though hes not near as popular as he once was

but thats what he gets for selling out


the New Radicals are a good one-hit wonder. they released one album in the later 90s, with one very memorable single, "You Get What You Give"
