Best Two Hit Wonders


The Top Ten

1 A-ha A-ha A-ha is a Norwegian band formed in Oslo in 1982. The band was founded by Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy.

Ummm they had more than 2 hits.

I know what your saying if you live in america your saying they only had one hit but if you live in Europe your saying they had multiple hits and in Europe they did have multiple hits but here (USA) they had 2 Take on me and The Sun Always Shines on T.V. - Thecyanryan

If you think they only had two hits WOW that is one of the dumbest things I have heard all year

Sun Always Shines On T.V. was a top twenty hit in the US too. - ProPanda

2 Nirvana Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. more.

Despite being considered one of the greatest bands of all time they only had 2 hits Smells like teen spirit and come as you are - Thecyanryan

So I guess Heart Shaped Box, All Apologies and Lithium are out of the picture then. - cjWriter1997

Cjwriter1997 those were great songs to but they didn't hit at least the top 40 in the main charts so they weren't technically hits even though they were great songs and everybody knows them now in fact lithium is my favourite nirvana song - Thecyanryan

Just checked actually, About a Girl, Heart Shaped Box and All Apologies were all #1 hits on Billboard. - cjWriter1997

Cjwriter1997 I see your confusion all those number 1 hits were on the alternative charts I'm talking about the main charts not the alternative so yes those were hits just not on the one main chart - Thecyanryan

They have LOTS of famous songs.

This list seems virtually the same as the list of bands only known for 2 songs. But anyway, Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark. Obviously they had other great songs, but those are the two songs they're best known for. - Element119
