Biography by Steve Huey

The quirky post-grunge quartet Dynamite Hack was formed in Austin, TX, in 1997, taking their name from a line in the film Caddyshack. Vocalist/guitarist Mark Morris, vocalist/bassist Chad Robinson, guitarist Mike Vlahakis, and drummer Chase Scott took their cues from bands like Weezer, Pavement, Jawbreaker, and the Barenaked Ladies. The latter influence was especially apparent on Dynamite Hack's acoustic folk-rock cover of N.W.A.'s "Boyz 'N tha Hood," which became a local radio hit in the Austin/Dallas area in 1999. In its wake, the group recorded a full-length album, titled Superfast, which was released locally in January 2000 and remixed for national distribution by Universal that summer.

“Black Velvet” - Alannah Myles (1990)

Canadian Alannah Myles burst onto the scene in 1989 with her sultry and bluesy song that made men around the world swoon. This song was a number one hit in the States in 1990 and took over the airwaves for months on end before it and her career disappeared into the spring night. She even won a Grammy that year for “Best Rock Female Performance.” At least she has something to show for it.

I understand your point, Mr. Logical. And, it's a good one.

And, although I am not one whose opinion should be considered in any Planet matters whatsoever, I have to say that it would be interesting to see what would happen if the mods decided to do away with DC for a trial period to see what overall effect it would have on the main forum.

I know that I rarely post there because the hated and mutual reviling are almost palpable. It is often an extremely unpleasant place. Perhaps you're right. Maybe political subjects would be less strident and more interesting if those threads were posted here.

Candlebox sold over 4 million copies of their debut record and more than 2 million of their followup. That's definitely NOT a one hit wonder.

I found an obscure song I used to love 10 years ago. It got me thinkin, I wonder how many people can actually remember old songs from 1 hit wonder bands in yesteryear. I'll start it off.



Dynamite Hack- Boyz in the Hood





Edit: I posted this here because I figured more people would see it and would find it interesting. Not many frequent other forums. Mods use your discretion if you'd rather it be in Musicplanet.


"Speedo" THE CADILLACS.

Haha... they played Rolla on their downward slide. They were the St. Pat's concert when I was on Court in 2000. Two weeks later they were doing a free show in Padre while I was there.

I am not so sure I would call Mountain a 1 hit wonder. I have the super hits album and its actually pretty good. Mississippi Queen is definately there biggest hit. But I think Yasgurs Farm and Nantuckett Sleigh Ride were pretty good as well.

Perhaps one of the greatest 80's songs of all time if not the greatest...

"Kyrie" by Mr. Mister

“Black Velvet” - Alannah Myles (1990)

Canadian Alannah Myles burst onto the scene in 1989 with her sultry and bluesy song that made men around the world swoon. This song was a number one hit in the States in 1990 and took over the airwaves for months on end before it and her career disappeared into the spring night. She even won a Grammy that year for “Best Rock Female Performance.” At least she has something to show for it.

First time poster here, and this is an interesting thread. "Black Velvet" is a great choice, along with "My Maria" and quite a few others.

It was before my time so I don't know if this qualifies, but one of my all-time favorites was "In A Gadda Da Vida" by Iron Butterfly.

I agree with that. I'd also like to throw in "Theme From an Imaginary Western".

I guess that'd be more accurate. But I don't know if we are counting people's time with other projects, ie The Runaways.

How about 'Come on Eileen' from Dexley's Midnight Runners?

They had a completely different sound but it didn't seem to catch on.

I dated a girl whose middle name is Eileen. She loved the song.

It was nice to live out the title of the song too.

Detachable Penis - King Missile
We're The Kids In America - Kim Wilde
Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil
What I Like About You - The Romantics
Never Say Never - Romeo Void

500 Miles - The Proclaimers
867-5309 (Jenny) - Tommy Tutone
Every Step Of The Way - Steve Walsh

I'm not sure if all of these are 1 hit wonders but I don't think many of them had multiple radio hits. I think The Romantics probably did, but I don't remember them.

Actually, the Romantics had another hit in the early to mid 80s. I think it was called "Talking in your Sleep" Not that it really matters... :p
