The following are songs from bands that became famous from a SINGLE SONG!
1. Stuck In the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel
Everybody who hasn't been hiding under a rock for their entire life has heard this song multiple times.
2. Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo by Rick Derringer
I bet you didn't know Rick Derringer got his start with the McCoys (Hang on Sloopy)! I wouldn't have thought so either. Hang on Sloopy actually does have a pretty nice guitar solo.
3. Magic by Pilot
A surprising amount of people my age know this song solely because of the "Happy Gilmore" soundtrack. An awesome song, though.
4. Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenmaum
Another one of those songs that the entire population knows but has no idea who sings it.
5. Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
One of my favorite songs of all time! Amazingly hilarious lyrics; this one makes me laugh everytime I hear it.
Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass
Hocus Pocus by Focus
Smokin' in the Boys Room by Brownsville Station
Ride Captain Ride by Blues Image
Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest
Convoy by C.W. McCall
Black Betty by Ram Jam
Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry
