Hey 'Foul, wasn't Autograph a Russian band that could barely speak english? Seriously, I heard that said on the radio once - don't know for sure if it is true.

"Rock n' Roll Hoochie-Coo" by Rick Derringer probably qualifies.

I think The Knack actually had more than one hit, didn't they?

I'll second and third "Drivers Seat " by Sniff and the Tears.

How about "Tow the Line" (?) by Spirit.

HAHAHA...Hot Rod Lincoln, remade by......damn, it's slipping my mind, the lead singer wears a 10 gal hat in the video.

Buck, Gotta love the Rappers Delight, not bad at all. Ever hear of a rapper named King T?? Good old time rap there as well.

Norman Greenbaum, right on!!

I have a few off the top of my head:

Divinyls, Touch Myself.
Molly Hatchet, Flirtin' With Disaster
King Harvest, Dancin In the Moonlight (not sure about 1 hit wonder though)
Skid Row, 18 and Life
Toadies, Rubberneck
EELS, (can't remember the song name....Kinda defeats the purpose here!! )
April Wine, Just Between You and Me
Metallica.....Just kidding.....

I know there are many other great ones, just can't pull them up in the old brain right now Great topic!!

I'm not a big music guru, it this isn't a 1 hit wonder, please forgive me.

This song always pops into my head when an over-nite (or 2nd day air, when I'm runnin low on ammo) package shows up at my work, as Im riding to the boat with it on company time:

BTO's - -- - - - - Takin care of business !

The all-time best cover of "Hot Rod Lincoln" is by the band ALL. If you can find it on the web, it's worth the download. (One of my favorite bands.)
As for my favorite one-hit wonder - "Sister Havana" by Urge Overkill.
