What are some 1 hit wonders of 2001?

The only one that comes to my mind is Lifehouse "Hanging by a Moment". I can't remember whether or not they came out with another single or what.

Nickelbacks "How You Remind Me" is an a argumental one, even though they have another single out.

Nickelback's been around for awhile here, and had a hit before.

I'd say Train, but you USAians might not of heard of them.
I'll also add a vote for any new boy or girl groups that came out this year.

Okay, off the top of my head.

Crazytown: Was that this year? I know they were at Ozzfest '00 and '01 but I don't think "Butterfly" hit the BIG big time until this y...er, last yea...2001.

Lifehouse: Agreed there.

Coldplay: That was this year, right?

Gorillaz: I know they released something else, but c'mon.

Dido: Shoulda said Thank You to Eminem for making her a one hit wonder (yeah, I bet I'm real original with that line)

Uncle Kracker: No, not the X-Pac song.

Dream: I dunno this genre very well, but I'm told this is all they did, but who knows.

Man, its hard to remember which of these were this year and which weren't. I probably screwed up something. There definately was a few more I would have liked to have seen become one hit wonders, but no such luck.

Crazy Town - Butterfly...THAT is a 1-hit wonder of 2001.

Lifehouse are on their 3rd single. So are the far-superior Coldplay.

Train had a hit song a few years ago. Nickleback had gotten a bit of airplay too.

Anyone else think the singer from Nickleback slightly resembles Jerry Lynn?

I'm not saying Coldplay and Lifehouse aren't good, nor am I saying they haven't released another single. But these other singles aren't what I'd call hits.

Train had that song "Meet Virginia"

And sure he looks like Jerry Lynn, but the lead singer of Puddle of Mudd looks like Edge.

But not nearly as much as Jani Lane of Warrant, couldn't find a good pic of him, though.

I would have to agree that Lifehouse is a one-hit wonder,but I think Coldplay and Nelly Furtado have had at least two singles that have done fairly well.

Train had "Meet Virginia" and "I am" off their 98 album. Then they had "Drops of Jupiter" and "Something More" off the current album. So that disqualifies them.

Lifehouse's new song which I think is called "Breathing" is getting airplay now so that might be considered another hit

I heard at least 3 songs of Coldplay's on the radio and the latest one had the video that was "Buzzworthy" on MTV (take that for what it is worth).

Dream had at least two hits (which I am ashamed to know). Plus, they even had that remake song with P. Diddy.

Of the ones that I can think of, you guys already said Crazy Town.

I would also say (off the top of my head)
- Afroman
- Blu Cantrell
- If Shakira didn't look like she was about to get nekkid all the time, I would say she was a candidate but I don't think the media would let that happen.

Gorillaz are pretty much destined to be a one-hit wonder, what with being animated characters and all that

Train is destined to be light-rock heroes for years to come.

Nelly Furtado will likely never have as big a hit, but she'll be on VH-1 for a long time to come.

Nickelback, Lifehouse, Crazy Town...I'd like you to meet Marcy Playground, Days of the New, and Verve Pipe...they will be your guides through one-hit wonderland.

Dream doesn't count to me, since they are created solely to be a short-term thing, as all boy/girl groups are. Plus they'll have 5-6 hits, all in a 4 or so year span, and then 5 years later, no one will remember them.

I pray Shakira is around for years to come....she doesn't necessarily have to sing mind you, just that she's on tv for years to come.



There, I feel better now.

Shakira has had a LONG and storied career before her English-Language debut "Laundry Service." She is HUGE in the Hispanic/Latin music industry -- a superstar, if you will. Her performance at the 2000 Latin Grammys brought down the house and caused MANY people unfamiliar with her talents to sit up and take notice. She may be a one-hit wonder in terms of U.S. Pop Radio (which means NOTHING any more and accounts for very little when it comes to credibilty), but she's basically the equivalent of Madonna elsewhere. She also had a Grammy-Winning MTV Unplugged special a couple of years back that sadly flew under a lot of people's radar.

She's not going anywhere, MTV and U.S. pop radio notwithstanding.

See it all comes down to what you consider to be hits. There is tons of bands who are huge all over the world but can't click in the States, or only have the one hit.
Nelly has already had two hits here and is on her third now maybe, I wasn't paying much attention because music generally sucks now.
Even your beloved Backstreetboys (ha) were big all over the world before the States.
I think it's pretty narrow minded to call some of these one hit wonders just because of the one hit in the states. Nickelback, the Verve pipe, and the like have all had hits elsewhere.

Mind you I don't particularly like any of the groups I mentioned.

I think there's a certain implication that the description one hit wonder on a board like this is applied to the American music scene, regardless of whether or not that's a closed-minded attitude to have. I'm sure many of us have bands/singers we like who are huge elsewhere but not that big here. I personally love the Tea Party, but the next time they're on US radio will be the first. So if Shakira takes her booty back down south after Laundry Service, she's a one-hit wonder in that sense...a very missed one-hit wonder though

Even with all the hype, did Alicia Keys have more than one hit last year?

I've seen two videos of hers, don't know if the second was a hit.

I can assure the you the Dual MTVs play "A Woman's Worth" A WHOLE FRIGGIN LOT. Keys got her second, and supposedly there's still more stuff to come from the album.

And Dream had two major ones, "He Loves U Not" and "This is Me", plus the Diddy-infused remix of the latter. I think He Loves U Not is in that pool with Drowning Pool's "Bodies" where the song is Really, Really Terrible, but fun to turn up real loud and sing in your car, should you be so inclined.

Shakira might not do so well in America just because she's a much better singer in Spanish. Her Spanish-language Unplugged show was really really good. And she was wearing leather pants. But the difference between Suerte and Whenever, Wherever is pretty stark, as far her voice goes. The video is still Frigging Awesome.

Nickelback has a second video, but it both sucks and blows all at once. It's even got the requisite theme of an abusive childhood. I think I saw it twice, so I dunno how well it's doing.

Maybe I'm being a music snob, but I don't like the idea of remixes being considered a seperate hit for the same artist. Then again I hate remixes. Strike that, I think its because I hate the material used for remixes. Yeah, that sounds about right.

Uncle Kracker's "Follow Me" definitely gets the honors. I think it really depends on how you look at some of the others... Dido's "Here With Me" was pretty big as well before "Thank You" came on constantly for half the year, though definitely not as big as "Thank You." And Nelly Furtado had "I'm Like A Bird" and then "Turn Out The Light" really started rolling towards the end of the year. I guess it depends on the qualifications to be a "hit."

I think you're forgetting a little something called The X-Factor's Theme Music. I'm sure Uncle Kracker won't mind being labeled a "one-hit wonder," though. After all, he's got everything he ever wanted.
