I keep bringing back the ’90s one-hit wonders to the 12 Inch Poll because you keep giving me songs I’d forgotten about.


It all started last month with my list of 12 ’90s one-hit wonders that rock. Last week, we doubled that number with 24 one-hit wonders that you suggested. Yet again, that list led to another list of forgotten alt-rock gems from the ’90s. There are 18 total: 17 of your suggestions plus last week’s Poll winner. Scroll the list below and vote for your favorite. I’d say suggest any that are missing, but I think we have all the important ones covered now!
