    Defining ”One Hit Wonder” is hard - we’ve used acts commonly referrered to as one hit wonders online, and bands that had one song that garnered significantly more international recognition than the rest of their catalogue. Hope that makes sense!

      I definitely wouldn't say that Smash Mouth and Afroman are one hit wonders. Smash mouth had I'm a believer and a few other song that were pretty popular. Afroman had Colt 45 also which is super popular.

    500 miles was originally released in 1988, to the glasses would have been 80's. I think they just added Benny and Joon footage into the video for the 1993 re-release.

    The Proclaimers a one hit wonder? I don’t think so, you’re un-educated. Sunshine on Leith, Angry Cyclist etc.. we won’t mention the musical based film “Sunshine on Leith” used a whole album of their music....

    AQUA one hit wonders??? That whole album was a hit and the second album had some hits, same with Smash mouth they had other hits, they made top 20 at least 4 times in AUS and CANADA.

    More one hit wonders: Eiffle 65’s I’m Blue, Jane’s Addiction’s Janie Says, Bel, Biv, Devoe’s Poison, and Martika’s Toy Soldier. Though I’m not sure if Toy Soldier was that incredible hit. Also I remember Afroman’s song came just before the world trade centers on 9/11, thinking how could we go from a song like that to terrorist attack.
