    I wouldn't call Soul Asylum a one hit wonder band, they had a few minor hits as well, Black Gold, Without a Trace, Somebody to Shove, Summer of Drugs, Can't Even Tell, Misery etc.

    Not sure. I hear it all the time on the radio even today and it's still the only song I know from Blur.

    I see your location is Ireland, so to you, maybe not. But over here in the states, they definitely qualify. Their only hit was Song 2 and it was a mild one at that.

    Hell, Oasis only really had one big hit here with wonderwall.

    Left Behind-Candlebox probably my fav from the 90's. Radio here plays a one hit 90's wonder everyday.

    Ahh right, didnt realise that. Kinda like how Pearl Jam are seen as one hit wonders by people where I live.... :lol: I live in a messed up place. :roll: Either way, Song 2 is great.
