INCORRECT STATEMENT. "Cum on Feel The Noize" and others from them. Learn your metal roots.

Now, for my contribution:
Gorillaz - "Feel Good, Inc."

Gorillaz were pretty big in the uk, off the radar now.

Stacy's Mom, dont even remember the band name

"Butterfly" from Crazytown. The radio raped that already not so good song until it was in the fetal position dying a slow, painful death. Never heard anything from them again.

Two platinum albums disagree with you there.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Yeah gotta say Gorillaz have loads of hits in the UK - Dirty Harry, Feel Good Inc., Rock The House to name a few...

And I swear 'Cum on Feel The Noize' is Slade? and they are DEFINATELY not one hit wonders. I may be 16 but i still know about them
#21
Cum On Feel the Noize is Slade, Noddy Holder wrote it. It has been covered by numerous bands including Quiet Riot and Oasis. And tbh, Gorillaz are a pretty big band in the UK.
#23
Devo - Whip it

Also, a bit of trivia. Jimi Hendrix is technically a one-hit wonder since he only had 1 top-40 hit, All Along the Watchtower. And even that was a cover of a Dylan song.

They merely ripped Frusciante's guitar riff on Pretty Little Ditty, wouldn't even classify them as a band.

I like "Two Princes" by The Spin Doctors

Here's a list.

Alive - I alone
Tonic - If you could only see
Blind Melon - No rain (amazing band btw)
The Darkness - I believe in a thing called love
Fuel - Shimmer & Hemmorhage (two hit wonder)
Collective Soul - Shine & The World I know

There's a lot more all from the 90s but right now I can't think.

This is wrong

Live had more hits than that. They had "I Alone", "Lightning Crashes", and that one song about the river, or whatever.

And Collective Soul also has more hits, "December" and "Reunion" being some of them.

Side note: Collective Soul's self-titled deserves to be considered one of the greatest albums ever created.
