    Struck a nerve it appears. I wrote the guitars, bass, and lyrics to a song and arranged it, and recorded it with me singing and playing the bass, and after I submitted our band’s song and got it featured on a commercial compilation CD, and then left the band, the publisher decided to swap my name out in the credits for the name of the new singer “to more accurately reflect the current line-up”. They didn’t ask at all if it was okay before releasing the CD. Imagine my surprise at the local CD shop reading the sleeve and still hearing my voice. So, I know how it goes…

    You really should re-do your list of one hit wonders. Its has more then one artist on the list that have written more hit and some that have hit higher on the billboard chart. Ted nugent being the biggest culprit. Frank zappa, and queensrique and rainbow also have have numerous hits that have hit the radio. Its just a bother that someone would take the time to create a site so inaccurate.

    Kevin,

    Thanks for your comment. I use the Billboard Top 40 as the criteria and explain my reasons here: http://toponehitwonders.com/whats-a-one-hit-wonder/

    By that criteria (which applies to the United States and NOT other countries), Ted Nugent, Frank Zappa, Queensryche and Rainbow are all one-hit wonders. So are Rush, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and many other artists who may have radio hits but only a single Top 40 hit.

    You may dispute the criteria but not the facts. All artists mentioned are Billboard Top 40 one-hit wonders.

    Here is Frank Zappa’s discography: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Zappa_discography#Singles

    Here is Ted Nugent’s discography: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Nugent_discography#Singles

    Here is Queensryche’s discography: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queensr%C3%BFche_discography#Singles

    Hey Waterman, I renew my suggestion that you require anyone who wants to post a comment to actually read the definition of a one hit wonder. It seems you have more than a few folks wandering through your website that are quick to criticize and slow to find out what you are trying to do here.

    We still need to do lunch sometime. Have a nice day!

    Oh, and I like the Mmm mmm mmm mmm song.

    Does anyone know the name of the artist or the song from way back when…the artist was a young female with long blonde hair wearing a hat, and in the video was an old man whistling into a magnifying glass…anyone know the song or artist? Thanks 🙂
