My favourite one hit wonders of the 1990s were a group called Gay Dad. They had a song that I can't remember the name of. But it was pretty cool. Yes indeedy!

I should mention also the Ironic song - aka 'How Ironic' by that group whose name I can't remember. About 1996 or so.

Calling The Verve one hit wonders is a bit unfair!

Ahhhhh, I know they only had the one real hit, but The Cardigans are a really, really good band. Check out their two most recent albums. Good stuff.

Great song, and now she's producing and writing for Pink and Cristina...

One of my faves was the The New Radicals - I think it was called Get What You Give.

Their new album "Long Gone Before Daylight" is hands down their best!

Awesome album. My fave too. Although Gran Turismo was also quite good.
