Chumbawamba Breaks Up: What's Your Favorite '90s One-Hit Wonder Song?

Despite proclaiming "You're never gonna keep me down," 1990's one-hit wonder Chumbawamba has broken up, reports Rolling Stone. You gotta hand it to them though, the British band has been together for 30 years, which is a really long time for having only one successful single ("Tubthumping.")

However, in their announcement they did add that they "reserve the right to re-emerge as Chumbawamba," so maybe we'll see them "get up again" sometime in the future. For now, I've got to ask: Is "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba your favorite 1990's one-hit wonder song? Or do you prefer another classic like "Nothing Compares 2 U" or "I'm Too Sexy"?

    "The Macarena" by Los Del Rio, no question.

    However, according to VH1, the greatest one-hit wonder of the 90s is "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot. However, Sir Mix-A-Lot isn't a one-hit wonder, so that's not exactly a fair placement.

    I love Tubthumping! When I'm feeling a bit down, I just have to think of the line "I get knocked down, I get up again" to raise my spirits!

    I like "thank you" by Natalie Merchant and I know she isn't a one hit wonder. But I have to say I drink a vodka drink I drink a whiskey drink and when I have to pee I use the kitchen sink.....bahahaha :) Go Homer!!!!

    I see RSF is number one. Its the only one I heard of in the original choices. The other one is "Nothing Compares2u. I think it was written by Prince.

    I love that song! I like "No Rain" as well, they may have been more than a 1 hit wonder if the singer hadn't died. I'm sure there are some more really good ones but I can't think of them now.

    "Yoo Hoo" by Imperial Teen. Whoever had the the idea in the movie "Jawbreaker" to place the camera at the end of a typical high school hallway and have Rose McGowan walking towards it in slow motion to this song playing. Thanks, that was pure genius.

    Nothing brings back driving around with my friends in the 90s like No Rain. That whole album is great, by the way. They are a great fusion of rock and blues.

    Natalie Imbruglia isn't a one-hit wonder unless you're only looking at the US charts, but why would you do that when she's Australian?

    Lots of good choices there! No Rain is an awesome song as is Torn.

    Tubthumping is always a good stand by.
