Counting Blue Cars and Banditos have shown up quite a bit in peep's 1-hit wonders list. I actually like Silverchair, and they did have a couple of songs on the radio, but they will forever be known for Tomorrow. Did you know that they were in high school when that song came out? Crazy.

    You realize that Silverchair is still playing, and still making great songs?

    Since the release of Young Modern (2007)
    "Straight Lines". "Reflections of a Sound", "If You Keep Losing Sleep", and "Mind Reader", were subsequently released as singles.
    Young Modern became the fifth Silverchair album to top the ARIA Albums chart. "Straight Lines" also became the band's third #1 single in Australia.
    The album and song each won three awards at the 2007 ARIA Awards.

    Aww, Australia's so cute. Btw, Dishawalla's still around, too.

    Add "Mother Mother" by Tracy Bonham to the list.

    Sorry to bring this up again, but I totally forgot about Anthem For The Year 2000. That song got pretty big, too. Silverchair should probably be taken off this list. But I'm lazy. ;)

    The Refreshments had many fantastic songs on their albums. Roger Clyne and PH Nafa started a new band with Scott Johnson from the Gin Blossoms,in the late 90's called Roger Clyne and the Peace Makers. Tired of the treatment they got from their label, Clyne started his own indie label Ema Java Records. The Peacemakers have released 4 studio albums with a 5th releasing on 4/29, and 2 live albums. If you get a chance to see them live they will not disappoint. I am going to attempt to put some youtube vids in my post.

    Silverchair has other good songs and they're not one hit wonders.

    Abuse Me was also a hit for Silverchair,in fact I don't even remember hearing Tomorrow,I remember Abuse Me,Cemetary and Anthem for 2000 though I see Tomorrow is their only #1 in the US. Volcano Girls was a hit for Veruca Salt.

    Except that Tonic's biggest hit was If You Could Only See, not Open Up Your Eyes. They also had You Wanted More. They'd be a prime candidate for a "Better To Burn Out Than Fade Away" Pack.

    I already covered Low in another pack.

    Flagpole Sitta...how could I forget that song!?

    I love you.

    Since you're 24, obviously you were around in the 90s and would've heard these bands. I've already recanted Silverchair. Tell me what Dishwala's and The Refreshments' other hits were.

    I'd love to get Flagpole Sitta for RB, and as already disputed, Tonic has had a few singles released so they don't belong as 1 hit wonders. Almost like a Seven Mary Three (which I'm a big fan of, I'd happily play "Cumbersome" in RB) or Soul Asylum. I almost want to add bands like The Verve and The Wallflowers to the list, but I know of a couple of other songs they released as singles as well. Can't think of anything in 2000 that I've heard from either of them though.

    I'm not aware of any other hits by the following bands/singles (but I could always be wrong):

    Monster Magnet - "Space Lord"
    Sandbox - "Curious"
    The Flys - "Got You Where I Want You"
