10 One Hit Wonders From 1998 That'll Make You Go "Oh Man, I Forgot About Them"

- Page 2

Pras - "Ghetto Superstar (This Is What You Are)"

Pras from The Fugees broke free with this massive hit, bringing along his friends Mya and Ol' Dirty Bastard for the ride. The song holds up great today, but unfortunately it would end up being the man's only solo hit.

New Radicals - "You Get What You Give"

Back in the days where pop-punk talked s*** about other artists just as much as rap did, New Radicals delivered this catchy tune whose video takes place in the most 90s of malls. Good stuff.

Next - "Too Close"

Possibly one of the funniest songs ever written about dance floor erections, this song was a duet that really should have made both singers bigger than it did.

Alana Davis - "32 Flavors"

If your first successful hit as an artist is a cover song, it often doesn't indicate great things for your career. Case and point: Alana Davis's cover of the Ani DiFranco song was her only hit.

Marcy Playground - "Sex And Candy"

Probably one of the lyrically weirdest, most nonsensical songs to get big in the 90s (and trust me, that's saying something), we still have a soft spot in our hearts for this one.

The Verve - "Bitter Sweet Symphony"

If I never hear those opening strings again it'll be too soon.

What one-hit-wonders do you remember from 1998?

The Backstreet Boys Are Trying Out The Food Industry Because They Really Do Want It That Way

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips! Well now, our favorite pop group is not only filling our hearts, they are filling


20 Songs You Always Listened To On Your Discman That You Haven't Thought About Since

There really is no other way to put this, if you remember these songs you are definitely getting closer to 30+, than you are to 21. There are songs on this list that we wish we could forget, and the younger generation should be glad that they never had to live through a time where these were blasting on car radios. But some of these hits bring back memories of simpler times, handing out with our friends, doing things we enjoyed before we had to start "adulting".  1.

12 Songs You Heard At Every Party In The 80s That You're Definitely Still Obsessed With

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive. There are so many awesome songs that were played at every


11 Boy Bands You Definitely Listened To That You've Already Completely Forgotten About

Of course everyone remembers the three main boy bands that have been lifted into pop royalty. Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block and NSYNC are the indisputable champions of the pop universe, without any doubts. A few others managed to get a good foot hold, like Boyz II Men or even Hanson who had their own hits, but there were even more that have been totally left in the past. GiphyBoy bands basically grew on trees in the 90s. A new one would pop up every 45 minutes with one hit song before fading back into the world. Sometimes
