These kinds of threads always turn into absolute shitshows with people trying to be edgy and funny.

boy people in this thread sure want to either appear as true music connoseirs that only listen to irish 60s novelty songs or post a bunch of funny "nirvana by the white stripes" posts

Charli XCX


Edit: Actually I rescind this. I just dislike the direction she has gone the past 3 years and I was being mean

A lot of salt in this thread could have been avoided if the title were simply "Bands that have only one song you enjoy"

The lead singer was a control freak, he literally fired the drummer DURING this music video shoot because he took a bath, yes you read that right, because the drummer took a BATH.
He wanted them to look "dirty" for the video and forbid them from all taking baths while they were filming the video over a few days. That's why after a certain point in the video you never see him again.

They made one more album after this song and it didn't do well and then they broke up.
I think Dexy's was a band that was constantly changing their looks & style of music (because the lead singer was a control freak) and they had a few hits (at least in the UK), but Come On Eileen and the "overalls & banjos" look and sound was their only US hit.

I feel like 90% of posts in these threads turn into people not grasping the topic and just posting shit they personally hate

has "4 non blondes" been mentioned already?

I have honestly never ever heard a single second of music not contained in the "What's going on" song from them

Ok we already have Metallica, Pink Floyd and Beethoven, I think this parade of blasphemy needs to stop in the name of decency.

Bob Dylan- Like a Rolling Stone
Wow. I mean to dismiss Dylan's catalogue like that.

How you can say that stuff like Desolation row, Love minus zero, Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis blues again, With god on our side, Its all over now baby blue, A Hard rain's a gonna fall etc aren't "all time greats" is completely beyond me!

I'll just post some typical 90s one hit wonders:

Fun Loving Criminals - Scooby Snacks

Whale - Hobo Humping Slobo Babe

King of New York, Koreon Bodega and Loco say Hi.
There's plenty more i could name. 100% Columbian and Come Find Yourself are great albums
Those didn't really do well in the charts though?

To make myself a bit more clear: I posted one hit wonders instead of bands with 'just one good song' because I don't believe there are (a lot of) bands with just one good song.

a friend of mine made a huge mistake of buying their album (we were in high school at the time, and money was scarce). never again!
