How many of these do you remember fondly? (or not!)

September 25th isn't just your average Tuesday. No way. It's the day we've all been waiting for...

Today is One-Hit Wonder Day (like you didn't know)!

Established back in 1990 to pay tribute to those who've had their five minutes (or less) of fame and subsequently vanished, leaving us only a catchy  tune (debatable at times) to remember them by.

Here's a look back in time of some of the best, and of course worst, one hit wonders.
