Great One Hit Wonder Artists of the '90s

Ranked in order of preference for their one big hit song. Clearly, there are going to be a lot of artists who had big singles in the '90s and didn't make my list. Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments, but I'm not putting "How Bizarre" on the list...so don't bother asking...

NOTE: I'm considering an artist a "one-hit wonder" if they had a big breakout single, and then basically faded from mainstream public view. Many of the artists listed below went on to release other singles (even if only from the album that also featured their big breakthrough hit) and other albums, particularly if you include their respective native countries. Some of them have even built up a devoted or cult following over the years. Many of them are still together. But for the purposes of this list, these are all artists who popped up on pop culture's radar between 1990 and 2000 and haven't really been heard from since.

Who is the greatest one-hit wonder of the 1990s? It's up to you to decide.

    Everything about Blind Melon's 1993 single "No Rain" has remained infamous to this day, from the opening guitar riff to Shannon Hoon's distinctive whine to, of course, the video's tap-dancing bee girl. The song came off the band's self-titled debut album, and turned that album into a quadruple-platinum hit. Nevertheless, the band wouldn't release another memorable single. While touring in support of their second release, "Soup," in 1995, Hoon was found dead of a cocaine overdose. The group disbanded in 1999 after failing to find a suitable replacement singer.
