Name That One-Hit Wonder

Post#1 » Mon Jun 27, 2011 3:02 am

Edit: I think we should set some ground rules for this game. From here on out, when you submit your guess, let's wait until it's confirmed before you post a new one-hit wonder, unless you are 100% sure you know who it is. Also, if the person that submitted the one-hit wonder confirms your guess, then that person should include the YouTube video, if it's available.

The term "one-hit wonder" is defined as a song that listed in the top ten (or at the very least, somewhere close to it) on the US Billboard charts.

This Canadian band found success in the early 80's with a top ten hit that was later featured in a mid-90's comedy.

Who are they? That's it? No background info? Damn, good thing I use to be a DJ.

That's 4 Non Blondes and their song was What's Up from somewhere around the early to mid-90's, if I remember correctly. Their lead singer has quite the huge mouth.

It's the clash! But the clash are by no means a one hit wonder. In fact there are of the most famous British punk band ever. They had 3 commercially very successful albums, multiple hits (London calling, Should I stay or should I go, Train in Vain, Rock the Casbah...) and are in the rock and roll hall of fame. Definitely not a one hit wonder.
