When you’re on the high there is just one solution to go, and nobody is aware of this higher than a one hit surprise. Fame is fleeting and writing a high charting hit is like catching lightning in a bottle – that shit is difficult to do twice. Immediately, I want to have a look at the one hit wonders of the noughties and their comply with up singles with my 2020 hindsight to see simply how dangerous they have been.

1. Loopy City – Butterfly

Comply with up single: Revolving Door.

If Limp Bizkit is the poor mans Rage Towards The Machine, then Loopy City is the bankrupt mans Limp Bizkit. Recognized for his or her rap / pop / punky / rock ting that was popping off within the 00’s for some time. Everyone knows and love ‘Butterfly’, it’s our collective responsible pleasure music. Right here is their comply with up, ‘Revolving Door’.

You’ll be able to see it’s a giant funds video from the get go. They remind you who they’re 5 seconds in with this scantily clad butterfly fairy, thoughtfully positioned driving this bulldogs ass.

We are actually getting into Crazytown.

Wow. This music is so braggadocios that actually nobody can relate to it, together with the inhabitants of Crazytown. The band has two frontmen (very 00’s), the verse rapped by the one who seems suspiciously just like the tattooist from Miami Ink’s verse is even worse than the verse from the blonde man. Severely unlikeable, and I’m VERY forgiving.

You can cease by child, If you wish to strive your luck.

However don’t waste my time, Except you’re all the way down to fuck – May set that as my Hinge auto reply.

Positives embody a not horrible guitar riff (the guitarist appears to be embarrassed by the video and doesn’t lookup as soon as), and a few stellar outfits by the video hoes (not derogatory, my dream is to be a video hoe). I’d wish to be on the wrap occasion for this video for certain.

Score: Gentle 2/10

2. Uncle Kracker – Comply with Me

Comply with Up Single: Drift Away

‘Comply with Me’ was the 00’s reply to me Invoice Withers’ ‘Lean On Me’. You continue to know each lyric despite the fact that you haven’t heard it in twenty years. I nonetheless shiver on the “Swim by way of your veins like a fish within the sea” lyric although.

Notice on the time of publishing: Solely re-listen to ‘Comply with Me’ in case you are completely certain you wish to as I can assure it’ll stay in your head for an ungodly period of time.

Right here is the comply with up.

I reckon it is a traditional however possibly something would sound like John Lennon’s ‘Think about’ following ‘Revolving Door’. The identical candy, nation / folky vibe as ‘Comply with Me’ simply barely much less catchy. A really humble video, he performs a mechanic who enjoys singing on the open mic on a Friday night time. I Find it irresistible. Name me Mrs Kracker to any extent further.

Score: Robust 6/10

3. Vitamin C – Mates Eternally (Commencement)

Comply with Up Single: The Itch

Let’s see what the queen of the tear jerking commencement music adopted up with.

If ‘Mates Eternally’ was commencement, ‘The Itch’ was schoolies on the Gold Coast. A really horny flip from ‘Mates Eternally’, certainly. This video finds Vitamin C so attractive that she is on a ledge of a constructing. I’ve solely lately unlocked that degree of attractive throughout iso. The constructing ledge was a preferred motif within the noughties music video however often for angsty causes, most notably Eminem and Evanescence.

The sexy constructing ledge was pioneered by Vitamin C.

This was a music that promoted a film, (once more very 00’s). It’s for the film ‘Get Over It’ so a younger Kirsten Dunst and Mila Kunis seem within the video. Music movies from the 2000’s had an actual boner for that includes know-how that had’t been invented but. This video isn’t any exception, however it does a reasonably good job in predicting what number of screens we like to stack in entrance of our face without delay in 2020.

Me watching ‘Too Scorching To Deal with’, whereas taking selfies to ship to my iso boyfriends whereas writing this text.

This music is a fucking shameless copy of Holly Valances‘s ‘Kiss Kiss’ although, can I get a witness?? The horny laughs within the intro are nice. Will get caught in your head, however the high quality of that is only a bit on the shit facet.

Score: sturdy 4/10.

4. Sisqo – The Thong Track

Comply with Up Single: Incomplete

Sisqo was preventing an uphill battle from the second he launched ‘The Thong Track’. It’s just too good, the video is without doubt one of the finest ever made and the entire operation was so profitable that it acted finally as a kiss of loss of life. For that reason, I’ll go simple on Sisqo.

Sisqo has an amazing vocal vary that he was capable of exhibit singing ‘The Thong Track’, and he does right here too. This music can be a comply with up within the sense that it acts as a sequel to his first hit. He’s saying that with all of the success and recognition singing about dump-truck ass has given him, he’s finally incomplete with out his girl. Bless.

A humble Tiger King.

The music is a bit run of the mill, not memorable. The video is a reasonably humorous watch in 2020, at one level a girl disappears from {a photograph} as if she have been Marty McFly. Like Vitamin C, he pivoted large time on his second single and I respect that. He is not only attempting to make the identical music over like Fetty Wap or Loopy City. However on the finish of the day I can see why it bombed (sorry Sisqo, Ily).

Score: Robust 4/10.

Enjoyable reality, bear in mind the ‘Get Over It’ film from Vitamin C’s music? Nicely have a gander at who’s on the film poster:

Attempt to recover from that!

5. Teriyaki Boyz –  Tokyo Drift

Comply with Up Single: I Nonetheless Love H.E.R feat. KANYE WEST.

After I awoke this morning, I had no concept that I’d be listening to a fucking Kanye West music from the Commencement period for the primary time. Kanye is the best artist of our technology so I’ve excessive hopes for this music. It was additionally on an album titled ‘Beef Or Hen’ which has solely elevated my expectations increased.

Oh my god. That is so good. Has below one million views on Youtube, a fraction of ‘Tokyo Drift’. I really cried when Kanye confirmed up within the video, actually. My boss requested me if I used to be okay and all I may say was “no”. I’m all about this. Sorry Uncle Kracker, that is taking the highest spot from you.

Score: Robust 10. Smashed it!

6. Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag

Comply with Up Single: Leroy

‘Teenage Dirtbag’ is such an amazing music. It has the flexibility to deliver that unrequited love power out that’s buried within the depths of every soul. Like ‘The Thong Track’ sadly it was too rattling profitable for its personal good and was a tough act to comply with.

Opening lyric: He’s bought the dirtiest sneakers that I’ve ever seen, chews on a blunt, wipes his butt with {a magazine}. Though this lyric can be related within the covid occasions, I can’t hold assist however assume that was a scrapped lyric from ‘Teenage Dirtbag’. It additionally has the identical DJ scratches the place the swear phrases are supposed to be. It is a traditional tour video wherein the solo goal is to indicate what a downright laff every member of the band is. It was shot in Melbourne too, would have been good publicity for Melbourne again within the day.

It’s actually not nice. Actually forgettable. “Leroy is my mojo man” is the primary refrain lyric. I’m unsure what which means, I’m unsure they do both.

Score: Gentle 3/10.

7. Alien Ant Farm – Easy Legal

Comply with Up Single: Films

Alien Ant Farm’s rendition of ‘Easy Legal’ is even higher than MJ’s and the video slaps as onerous because the singer slaps his head into the digital camera. Prime stuff. However for those who ask me, protecting a MJ music is an affordable ticket to fast success. Can they obtain the identical success with an unique? Nicely no clearly, the primary giveaway being them being on this article.

Topsaroo video, like actually good. Clearly a giant funds. Lead singer seems scorching with the reverse mohawk, unsure why it wasn’t extra in style. By no means too late @isoboyfriends.

I’m fairly certain Uncle Kracker is the guitarist for this band.

Traditional Kracker.

The music is tremendous skippable. It didn’t attain nice heights. Songs like this want actually good and distracting music movies to assist them chart, this one even has a full on skit midway by way of. I do know it feels like I’m being harsh however there’s a purpose these are all one hit wonders. It’s not Loopy City dangerous however it’s Mundane Metropolis for certain.

Score: 3/10

8. The Androids –  Do It With Madonna

Comply with Up Single: Entire Lotta Love

Do It With Madonna. A catchy smash Aussie hit. Cute video too. All for it. I don’t bear in mind their comply with up so I’m excited for this.

The lyrics are trash. They’re like if you find yourself compelled to write down a poem in 12 months two and your trainer received’t allow you to go to lunch till it’s completed. It simply has zero edge and 0 creativity. With no matter pussy ‘Do It With Madonna’ scored the band members, this music absolutely dried them proper up. This music is so shit-house that it belongs on a kind of Jeep advertisements. For positives, let’s go together with the cowboy hat the drummer wears within the video.

Score: 1/10

Higher to have one-hit-wondered that to by no means have hit in any respect although I say. All of those artists have ‘Drops Of Jupiter‘d however nonetheless have the potential to ‘Hey Soul Sister‘. You merely by no means know after they may make a comeback.
