When people think back to the music of the 1990s, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins often come to mind. But if you were to turn on the radio back then, you'd be just as likely to hear "Sex and Candy" or "Closing Time" as you would "Jeremy" or "Come As You Are." It was a great time for one-hit wonders.

The story is as old as the music industry – some bands just have one perfect moment. Here are your selections for the top 10 One-Hit Wonders of the 1990s.
