Throughout the history of American music, as well as music history in general, there have been countless notable groovy musical artists and bands. Thinking back to the time of peace, love and rock n’ roll, many epic musicians and groups come to mind including, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix… the list literally goes on and on.

The list of “one-hit wonders” is also quite lengthy throughout American music history!

What we commonly refer to as a one-hit (music) wonder is a music group or solo artist that has accomplished popularity, however, only once! Typically, one-hit wonders will strike it lucky with a song that appeals to music fans, but only briefly.

Many one-hit wonders will accomplish a spot on the Top 40 Singles Chart, but do nothing else as especially notable in their career.
