It's National One Hit Wonder Day! Sometimes what an actual "One Hit Wonder" is, can be confusing. A band gets labeled as such, but you're like they have so many other great songs!

So here it is, this is what a "One Hit Wonder" is defined as:

A musical act that has only has one Top-40 hit.

You might like 4-5 other songs from a band, and those songs could have had "success" but if they never reached that level, they are a "One Hit Wonder."
