Here is a list compiled by Billboard.com enumerating the singers/bands of this decade that were considered “one-hit wonders”–meaning, he blasted into the scene with what looked like a promising music career, only to never be heard again after their one single. The biggest one hit wonder of last
decade was Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day”. It was used as the kiss-off song for the 5th season of “American Idol,” which gave the song enough juice to become the biggest single of 2006. The song went to No. 1 in April and stayed at the top for five weeks. But Powter’s good fortune didn’t last long; he hasn’t visited the Hot 100 since.
