For this week’s 12 Inch Poll, we’re using the term ’90’s one-hit wonders loosely. We just want an excuse to revisit some classics.


Because, really, the whole “one-hit wonder” thing is relative, right? Take Eve 6, for example. “Inside Out” was their big hit, but if you came up in the Boston area in the ’90s, it wasn’t their only hit: a bunch of their songs made it onto rock and alternative radio. The same can be said about bands like Blind Melon, and Boston’s own Mighty Mighty Bosstones.


But for the sake of this week’s Poll, we’ll call them all one-hit wonders. As usual, there are 12 in total. Because I’m Adam 12. All you need to do is refresh your hazy ’90s memory and vote for your favorite. And if your favorite didn’t make my list, holler at me on Facebook or Twitter and maybe I’ll put together another list for next week’s Poll.
