List of 1980s one-hit wonders in the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the music industry, the term one-hit wonder is used to describe an artist primarily known for a sole hit single. While no singular established criterion exists to classify an artist as a one-hit wonder, the frequently-cited technical description of a one-hit wonder in the United States defines a hit single as one which hits the top 40 of the national singles chart, the Billboard Hot 100.[1] Accordingly, Billboard journalist Wayne Jancik defines a United States one-hit wonder as "an act that has won a position on Billboard '​s national, pop, Top 40 just once."[2] Using this definition, artists are therefore classified as one-hit wonders based solely on Billboard Hot 100 chart performance—other factors such as success in other territories, additional hits on other Billboard genre-specific charts, membership in more prominent bands or musical groups, critical acclaim, and influence are not accounted for.[1]

Notes[edit]

Several artists in the list (marked in italics on the main tables) are worth noting for achieving success or popularity outside of the Billboard Hot 100:

A. ^ "Into the Night" was re-issued in 1989 and peaked at number 20 on the Hot 100 for the week ending July 1.[25]

Gnotes[edit]
