re: Favorite "One hit wonder" Rock song of the 90's?(Posted by Baloo on 2/13/13 at 10:21 am to LSUballs)
It's just that when I think one hit wonder, I tend to think of a guy like Afroman and "I Got High". Someone whom you are hard pressed to think of another song they ever did. Lou Reed only had one chart single, but it's hard to call him a one hit wonder, because he's sort of famous. He doesn't exactly fit the mold of a one hit wonder even if he only had "one hit".
I just think the term excludes critically acclaimed artists who bubbled up to the mainstream real briefly, but still have a rabid following. I mean, Sleater-Kinney only had one chart hit ("You're No Rock n Roll Fun"). But I don't think of them as a one hit wonder at all.
