One Hit Wonder Day

To bring you up to speed, a one hit wonder is an act that's made it to the top of the charts just once.

I'm gonna toast your strudel with some knowledge here. HERE WE GO.

  1. Michael Buble is a one hit wonder. His song "Haven't Met You Yet" is his only chart topping number.

  2. Same goes for Florence + the Machine. "Dog Days Are Over" made it big in 2010.
  3. Foster the People's kind of messed up (okay really messed up) tune "Pumped Up Kicks" is their only golden nugget to date.
  4. Remember Gotye? ♫Now you're just somebody that I used to knowwwwww♫
  5. Amy Winehouse is sadly a one hit wonder. "Rehab" was her only big single.
  6. OK Go's "Here It Goes Again" (THE VIDEO WITH THE COOL TREADMILL CHOREOGRAPHY) is a one hit wonder. It'd be tough to beat that really. They peaked too soon :(
  7. I bet these are all the lyrics you know from t.A.T.u.'s one hit wonder "All The Things She Said" ♫All the things she said all the things she said running through my head running through my head running through my read running through my head♫
  8. Afroman's insanely quotable "Because I Got High" is still a favorite of mine. ♫I was gonna clean my room, until I got high♫
  9. I'M A MILLENNIAL AND WAS OBSESSED WITH S CLUB 7 FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
  10. It comes as no surprise that Baja Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" is a one hit wonder. (Woof woof woof woof).
  11. BLINK 182 IS A ONE HIT WONDER. Wut.
  12. I'll end this list with a one hit wonder that's had some serious staying power at parties and weddings. Rednex "Cotteon Eyed Joe". Don't lie, you still know the dance...

So, what do you think?
