    Best "One Hit Wonder" band and their signature song

    I'm sure everyone has one. A song so great that you figured the band was destined for stardom. Instead they ended up the answer to a trivia question.
    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    I'm guessing you are using it in the sense of an obscure group, band, or person having a song that charted (made it into the Top 100). One source I read narrowed it down even further to the Top 40.

    Bearing that in mind, Janis, Jimi, Devo, and a bunch of others were technically "one-hit wonders," since they made the Top 40 only once each in their careers.


    There are many earlier one-hit wonders, but this is the earliest one I can remember right now. Norman Greenbaum, "Spirit in the Sky."

    Well, it's been in your mouth for like, three hours. It feels like it's full of water.
