I don't know when FfF released "America Town", but I do know that it was doing quite well before the 9/11 attacks. It might have gotten a boost from some people taking solace in it somehow afterwards, but it was well on its way to being a hit here. It had been on VH-1 constantly, and on a lot of the radio here beforehand.



There, I feel better now.

Gotta go with Crazytown on this topic. I like Lifehouse's new song. I know Train has had another hit with "Meet Virginia". Did Crazytown even release another single?

To Keith Myath (way off topic... about your sig):

>>"As she fell face down into the black muck of the mud-wrestling pit, her sweaty, 300-pound opponent muttering soft curses in Latin on top of her, Sister Marie thought, "There is no doubt about it; the Pope has betrayed me."<<

>>--Open challenge for anyone to tell me where this came from<<

It was an entry in San Jose State's annual Bad Writing Contest about 15 years ago.

Good work on the sig identification, although, I have to say Stephanie got it a while back. But good work anyway

Question: If the current SevenDust song gets over enough, do they get credit for one hit or do they have two because of their involvement in that "Angel's Son" song that was big over the summer?

I believe "Black" and "Bitch" off their first album were a decent sized rock radio hits. People just forgot about Sevendust cause their second album sucked.

Such an obscure hit, you've never even heard of it! Kicked some serious ass, though.

They had two "hits", but regardless, I think they count: Three Doors Down. Lord knows what Alex Lifeson was thinking.

If you guys think guys think tha Alicia Keys, Jagged Edge and Bubba Sparxx are one hit wonders then you need to listen to more black radio stations. Jagged Edge is on their third platinum CD. I know you guys heard the song "Lets get married" in 1999. Everybody I know who has gotten married since then has played THAT song at their wedding. And everybody should give Jill Scott a listen, shes amazing. People say music is shitty but R&B is putting out some good stuff right now.

"Loser" was a big enough hit to remove them from the list. It was #1 on the Modern Rock charts for a number of weeks, something like 5 or so.

Afroman: "Because I got high, because I got high, because I got hiiiigh. La da da-da da-da-da..."

I completely forgot this song even existed until I watched Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back the other day.

Y'all weren't afraid to write off some hit makers.

Thankfully I was right about Afroman :-P
