The term “one-hit wonder” refers to an artist who enjoys a hit on the national US chart — most specifically the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 40. Other factors such as hits on Billboard’s genre-specific charts, success in other regions or countries, or membership in more prominent acts won’t affect an artist’s status as a one-hit wonder. The 80s had lots of one-hit wonders, but we only picked the few who we think made remarkable, albeit quite brief, musical moments in that decade.
