Nostalgia for the 1990s is becoming big business. The Summerland Tour is on the road currently with the Gin Blossoms, Everclear, Sugar Ray, Lit and Marcy Playground all sharing one stage. If that's not enough, the Barenaked Ladies are out there with Blues Traveler, Cracker and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Also, consider the fact that the Stone Temple Pilots and the Backstreet Boys are both planning 20th anniversary tours. (Not together, of course.)
The group that stands out to us in that long list is Marcy Playground. They only had a single hit, 1997's "Sex and Candy," but that was enough to keep them raking in money 15 years later. They were just one of many great one-hit wonders of the decade.
Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite one-hit wonder of the 1990s? Are you down with Los Del Rio and the "Macarena?" Maybe you're an Onyx fan still grooving to "Slam" or you're one of the few remaining fans of Five still dancing to "When the Lights Go Out." There are a lot of songs to pick from here.
