A one-hit that should have went on to have more. Sadly, they're a Mid/Late 90's reference. Strangely, they were dropped from the label shortly after their time in the sun.

Oddly, the album Women in Technology did not do well in The UK while it slightly did OK in The US in that Alternative Hit kind of way.

In fairness I think a lot of the so called one hit wonders had other songs or even albums that they put out. They just never got the notoriety of the one that made them big in some instances.

Just read your post as right as I posted the statment above slappy. Thats some pretty good research you did and I'm actually impressed cause I had no idea. I should wiki a lil more intensley next time before making an assumption. Nice work and actually is a catchy tune none the less

Around my area of SE Michigan, they had a small following thanks to "You're Gonna Miss Me" being a big Top 10 hit on WKNR, which introduced the Metro area to a lot of great bands that had a tough time in many other areas as well as a lot of the area's Garage Punk bands long before CKLW turned into the hit station.
Ok, gotcha. & I used to spend summers in Ann Arbor with my cousins but I don't remember that radio station but I'm guessing it changed way long before then. There was a station like that where I grew up though, it was basically 90s rock and alternative and played a lot of great obscure stuff that didn't get much airplay elsewhere. But by the time I graduated from high school they weren't getting as many listeners and became an 80s "rewind" pop station... That didn't last long and now they play country. But I get what you're saying - great radio stations can leave an impact on the area.

Back to one hit wonders....this song was da bomb a few years ago.

edit; well upon doing a quick google search supposedly MIA had other songs that charted in countries other than the US. ahah whatever. Guess I didn't get my music facts right this time xP

WKNR went off the air around 1972. It had both AM and FM stations, but sadly CK was the big game by then and it's FM was shadowed by WRIF (part of the ABC Radio network) and the more interesting WWWW and WABX.

The point is to share good music and we are doing that and having fun.
LOL yep. This thread made me remember songs I totally forgot about xP
