Ask anybody you meet to name a one hit wonder and they'll be able to do it. We might not remember who sang it, but the melody is probably an earworm we can't forget.

Like the Kandi Burruss hit that heads off the slideshow below. Sure, she's a Grammy winner, but Porsha Williams landed more hits on Kenya Moore than Kandi landed on the charts as a solo artist.

And then there's Brooke Hogan, Chumbawumba, and American Idol alums Elliott Yamin and Kimberly Locke!

One hit wonders are so ubiquitous Tom Hanks and Liv Tyler made a movie about them. Everybody remember pulling for Tom Everett Scott to get the girl and the gig? I do.

I also remember these 20 one hit wonders which are sure to rock your morning. Or just send you fondly strolling down Nostalgia Lane.

20 One Hit Wonders
Well if this one hit wonder isn't PERFECT for 4/20, we just don't know what is.
View As List
Afroman - Because I Got High

1. Afroman - Because I Got High

Well if this one hit wonder isn't PERFECT for 4/20, we just don't know what is.


Kandi - Don't Think I'm Not

2. Kandi - Don't Think I'm Not

Before she was a Real Housewife of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss was going by Kandi and recording songs like "Don't Think I'm Not."


Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

3. Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

As an oft-featured song on movie soundtracks, it's hard to believe Spirit In The Sky was Norman Greenbaum's only hit.


D4L - Laffy Taffy

4. D4L - Laffy Taffy

Hmmm, wonder if this was the inspiration for all of Miley Cyrus' twerking? Or if maybe they were all just munching on Laffy Taffy and this is what came out of D4L's jam session.


Brooke Hogan - About Us

5. Brooke Hogan - About Us

Brooke Hogan, daughter of Hulk Hogan, tried to make it in the music business. She failed. It was epic.


Kimberly Locke - Eighth World Wonder

6. Kimberly Locke - Eighth World Wonder

Kimberly Locke, another American Idol finalist, is also another one hit wonder. But hey, she had one, right? That's more than Taylor Hicks can say, and he WON.


Asher Roth - I Love College

7. Asher Roth - I Love College

Do you know why Asher Roth loved college? Probably because he knew how to celebrate 4/20.


Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

8. Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

Don't even try to pretend like you haven't sung this song while ALSO pretending you're really Kung Fu fighting.


Aqua - Barbie Girl

9. Aqua - Barbie Girl

Barbie Girl. Because life is fantastic when you're plastic. Or living off of air and light.


Mr. Big - To Be With You

10. Mr. Big - To Be With You

Mr. Big's "To Be With You" is like many of the 80s big hair ballads: the only one the band made.


Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

11. Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

Maybe you ARE too sexy for your shirt. If so, there's a one hit wonder for that.


Nena - 99 Luftballoons

12. Nena - 99 Luftballoons

If you don't know "99 Luftballoons" you should. Watch Wedding Crashers and get educated. Or just watch this video.


Elliott Yamin - Wait For You

13. Elliott Yamin - Wait For You

Elliott Yamin, and American Idol finalist, has exactly ONE HIT under his post-Idol belt. But hey, it was a decent one?


Yael Naim - New Soul

14. Yael Naim - New Soul

After Yael Naim's "New Soul" became the apple theme song, we didn't hear anything else from her, which is too bad, because this song's fun!


Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out

15. Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out

"Who Let The Dogs Out" was another song of summer that led the Baha Men....nowhere. Oh well.


Come On Eileen

16. Come On Eileen

Come ON, Eileen! Why'd you have to go and be a one-hit wonder?


Tony Basil - Mickey

17. Tony Basil - Mickey

Oh, Tony, it's a pity, you don't understand, that this song featuring you in a cheerleading skirt in your mid-30s was destined to be your only hit.


Chumbawumba - Tubthumping

18. Chumbawumba - Tubthumping

This song probably became a one hit wonder because NO ONE KNOWS what "Tubthumping" is about! Except alcohol. We got that.


Len - Steal My Sunshine

19. Len - Steal My Sunshine

"Steal My Sunshine" was Len's ONLY hit, which all too often happens to songs of summer.


Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

20. Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" is actually ABOUT drugs. And sex. It's, like, totally rock and roll.

NBC is about to announce some news that is totally bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Bananas:

Gwen Stefani will take over for Christina Aguilera as a judge on Season 7 of The Voice.

Stefani, Gwen

The network itself is yet to confirm the switch, but sources tell TMZ that Aguilera will be too far along in her pregnancy (8-9 months) by the time the Season 7 Battle Rounds begin to effectively participate.

Enter the former No Doubt singer. She'll swoop down into a fancy red chair in June when new episodes start filming.

The bombshell sex tape starring Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta fame is already shaping up to be a huge seller, according to reports.

According to Steve Hirsch, the Mimi Faust sex tape is one of the hottest pre-sellers his company, Vivid Entertainment, has ever seen in his years at the helm.

Get 'em while they're hot, hot, HOT like Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith!


Make no mistake, this tape is big ... and things get bigger, we're told.

The CEO says the company made more than $400,000 in pre-sales this week alone simply by releasing some stills (above) and one very NSFW trailer.

Vivid has never seen pre-orders at this level, he says, amazed.

Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta is set to drop Monday in full on Vivid's website, and Hirsch says he's expecting sales to be massive. We don't disagree.

Just how high will the Mimi sex tape sales go, though?

James Franco is an American actor, director, screenwriter, producer, teacher, author and poet, according to the stirring first line of his Wikipedia page.

He is also 36 years old today, born one day before what would have been the most appropriate celebrity birthday ever. Just missed 4/20, man. So close.

When he's not making out with Seth Rogen, trying to pick up underage girls on Instagram or calling N.Y. Times critics bitches, he does actual work, and lots of it.

He's as educated and versatile as he is talented, awkward and hilarious, making for a rare combination in today's often banal, celebrity-obsessed culture.

It's hard not to think foundly of the guy. Check out the photo gallery below as we pay tribute to some of our favorite pics of Franco and the many reasons we love him ...

Looks like Gwyneth is trying to give Ellen DeGeneres a run for her money.

Gwyneth Paltrow Selfie

The newly single actress posted the above selfie to Instagram last night with a caption reading "girls' night."

Okay, so it's not as epically star-studded as Ellen's famous Oscar selfie, but it's still pretty impressive that a casual night out for Gwyneth involves hanging with Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie, Chelsea Handler, Stella McCartney, Naomi Watts and director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

In typical Gwyneth fashion no non-famous peasants were permitted to besmirch the photo with their presence.

Bryan Singer is firing back at sexual assault accuser Michael Egan, saying he was not even in the same state during the period he allegedly raped him.

Michael Egan claims in a new lawsuit that the X-Men director anally raped him and forced hard drugs on him during two separate trips to Hawaii in 1999.

Singer will reportedly file credit card bills and various other documents proving he was in Toronto during the time frame in question, shooting the first X-Men.

The 31-year-old man accusing Bryan Singer of sexual assault claims he didn't remember the incident until recently, which Singer also says should clear him.

Egan filed a lawsuit over a series of L.A. pool parties alleging sexual abuse against three other men in 2000, with a clear memory of what they alleged did.

Singer was not named in that lawsuit, despite Egan's claim that at one of these parties, Singer forced Egan to perform oral sex on him when he was just 15.

Kristen Bell and Ellen DeGeneres have a long history of making memorable television together.

Kristen's sloth meltdown of 2012 became one of the daytime show's most beloved moments, and today, Ellen made another dream come true for Bell, as she allowed the actress to re-create her favorite reality series, Naked and Afraid.

Okay, so the Frozen star didn't really deliver on the "naked" part of the title (for that you'll have to go back to Kristen's wardrobe malfunction from last month), but a flesh-colored bodysuit is as close as you can get on daytime TV.

As for the fear, well...there was plenty of that.

Check out the clip above to see Kristen get tormented by the elements as she attempts to build a fire and construct a shelter. At least they kept a stuffed sloth nearby for comfort.

They say that fame is fleeting... but it can also be mysterious.

Especially in this day and age - when stars can be made purely out of Instagram photos and scandalous Tweets - it's necessary to sometimes stop and ask:

Wait... why is that person famous again?

This can be true for those you may despise (hi, Kim Kardashian!) and also for those you admire (what power does Kate Middleton hold, exactly?).

With this in mind, we've come up with 13 pretty big celebrities whose names keep being in the news despite a lack of any discernible skill. Apparently, all it takes to strike it big is to film a sex tape and/or be a terrible mother:

13 Stars Who Don't Deserve to Be Famous
The most obvious selection here. She is world famous because she had sex with Ray J on camera and knows how to use Instagram.

Kim Kardashian

Kendra Wilkinson

2. Kendra Wilkinson

She mastered the art of sleeping with a really old dude and watching the money pour in for some reason.


Jenelle Evans

3. Jenelle Evans

We should all fight with our moms and have babies out of wedlock if it means this kind of attention.


Kate Upton

4. Kate Upton

We adore Kate Upton. We'd commit murder for Kate Upton. But she has large breasts and can do the cat dance... that's about it.


Valeria Lukyanova

5. Valeria Lukyanova

She's known as The Human Barbie, and her appearance makes it clear why. We really should not reward such a thing.


Kate Middleton

Like any other rational human being, we LOVE Kate Middleton. But she's a small piece of a royal family that holds no power.


Kate Gosselin

JUST GO AWAY!!!


Evelyn Lozada

Despite the fact that she has no projects to promote and her reality show has been canceled by Oprah, Lindsay Lohan has been on a full-blown media bender for the past 24 hours. 

Guess that's better than her usual benders.

Lindsay Lohan on The View

Lindsay admitted her sex list was real on last night's Watch What Happens Live and this morning she co-hosted The View, where she shared more lies and not-so-stunning revelations.

Linds kicked the episode off by proclaiming that her sobriety is going "great," and Whoopi Goldberg proved why she's an Oscar winner by somehow managing to keep a straight face.

Goldberg then asked Lohan about her trip to Coachella last weekend, which Lindsay said was better than previous years, because she was in a "different headspace." By which she probably means her head was full of cocaine.
