List RulesVote up the 2000s one hit wonders that you were the most excited to remember

While some might feel sorry for one hit wonders and their short brushes with fame, we should all actually consider them a blessing. In a world where the radio plays the same handful of artists repeatedly, it’s nice to hear some new voices, however briefly. The best one hit wonders have provided the world with a break... Until the radio plays the songs into the ground and we all spend the rest of our lives with Eiffel 65's "Blue" trapped in our heads.

Although every decade has had their share of one hit wonder songs, the 2000s had some of the best. In case you don't remember, the gems on this list were some of the biggest songs in the 2000s. Unfortunately for their artists, the hits didn't spark long-lasting careers. Still, it's nice to look back and congratulate yourself on remembering all the lyrics to "Party Like a Rock Star."
