The Contenders: Page 3

41 U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

What is he doing on this list? Hammer had five top 10 hits!

42 A**hole - Dennis Leary
43 Broken - Seether

Seether... really Seether has made so many hits, to say they are a one hit wonder is flat out ridiculous. like remedy, fake it, fine again, rise above this, break down. They actually are a great band!

44 Me & Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin V 2 Comments
45 All Along The WatchTower - Jimi Hendrix

Right, because Voodoo Child and Hey Joe don't exist. - SoldierOfFortune

How could this not be on the list as always is considered one of the most awesome 1 hit wonders - cranfan4ever

49 Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus
50 Tubthumping - Chumbawamba

Yes, this song is VERY repetitive, and all over the place, but it's a good motivational song, and a fantastic song to work out to... I just can't believe it's so low on the list, and I am astounded that Kung Fu Fighting is even lower. I expected that song to at least be in the top ten!

51 California - Phantom Planet
52 Romeo's Tune - Steve Forbert
53 Torn Between Two Lovers - Mary MacGregor
54 Closing Time - Semisonic
55 Gangnam Style - PSY

Nope. He's also known for his other song Gentleman.

Made this song, it became a hit, the he disappeared for the longest.
