Subject: One Album wonders.

Written By: holicman on 10/03/07 at 2:26 am

Maybe we should start a list of bands who were leashed upon us in a hail of commercial hype, had 2 or 3 big songs on one album and then were literally never heard from again.

I am struggling to think of certain bands but I know there are a few from the nineties that I have pretty much never heard of again.


One off the top of my head would be soul Asylum.

Arrested Development's debut album had three hits (1992/1993) and they basically faded from popularity

One of the BEST examples of a one album wonder came from Canada.  Sometimes you can start off with unbelievable success, and then you fall pretty hard ...

World on Edge was a Canadian pop group whose 1990 self-titled debut album sent 7 singles (6 Top 40) into the Canadian chart spanning 1990-1992.  A follow-up album failed to chart, and produced no hit singles, so the group called it quits.  Because they were a Canadian group, not many Canadians will remember them by name, but their songs are definately remembered to hear them

I think they did 2 albums: 1 album was their 1988 or 1989 album but the other was their comeback album which failed so they were a 1 album wonder I believe.
