things are about to get cheesy welcome to watchmojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the top ten cheesiest one-hit wonders of the 2000s we’ve chosen acts that were strongly identified with one extremely cheesy but successful song during the 2000s we’re not limiting things to acts that literally only had one hit single throughout their entire careers but we’re picking acts that are most known today for one chosen song and for the record we’re not saying these songs are bad but there’s a certain fromage factor to them that helps them stand out number ten all the things she said tattoo never underestimate the effect full lesbian antics can play on the libido of the teenage male highly controversial for the schoolgirl outfits and lipstick lesbian imagery in its music video combined with an undeniably infectious beat this Russian duo had a surefire equation for international attention charting in about 30 countries with further success in some locations especially their homeland this song will go down in history worldwide due to its controversy number nine he loves you not dream back when Diddy was known for his musical influence and style instead of his business acumen when he tapped an act as the next big thing his track record was solid when dream hit the charts with their debut single it seemed like they could be the next Spice Girls or at least exhibit some staying power alas twas not the case charting in America Canada New Zealand Australia and the UK it was the toe-tapping catchiness of this song’s beat combined with the memorable music video that earned it a place in our memories and on our list number eight wherever you will go the calling laundry will be there despite reforming in 2013 with mostly new members the calling has yet to escape the legacy of their one true hit and most likely never will their debut single managed to dominate new rock radio and charts worldwide for a decent run before fading away after their second album failed to reclaim the same acclaim though their time in the Sun was short their notoriety lives on with the song that brought them Fame remaining a staple of a lot of radio playlists worldwide number seven stars are blind Paris Hilton any self-respecting music fan may shudder to recall it but there was a time when Paris Hilton the woman known for her partying antics and sex tape charted in the top five and five different countries attempting to be taken seriously as a musician may have eluded her but this reggae influenced pop number managed to make her famous for a moment of her life or something legit yeah almost had it Paris number six heaven DJ Sammy sampling a 1985 Bryan Adams song this 2002 reworking reached heights never before seen by this Spanish DJ and it define his legacy earning three other top-ten hits all of his other successes were easily eclipsed by this certified gold achievement hitting the number one slot on the UK Singles Chart and the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 the ultimate testament of the staying power of this song was the fact that it re-entered the charts five years after its initial release number five lips of an angel hinder holy water reaching the top position on the US Billboard mainstream chart lips of an Angels lyrics about lost and secret love spoke to a lot of people in North America despite being mocked or even loathed among certain groups of music fans for its cheesy overwrought style hinder was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame based largely if not solely on the magnitude of this one hit song number four the ketchup song asura hey lost ketchup a pop group remembered for an infectious beats that conquered the world and ate peculiar obsession with a certain condiment blast ketchup took the music world by storm against all odds selling over seven million copies worldwide the songs success crossed cultural and language barriers with both English and Spanish versions while still managing the feat of becoming the sixth best-selling single in the history of France to that point number three graduation friends forever vitamin C initially released on an album in 1999 this single was released and hit the charts in 2000 and perfectly as the snapshot of the end of one decade and the beginning of another all the time charting in North America and across the pond there is something about this song that practically forces you to reflect on your life upon hearing it I guess for this vanilla and and suddenly it’s like continuing to remind many people of their youth on the rare occasion that they hear it this prom or graduation staple has stood the test of time because of its unapologetically bittersweet tone number two butterfly crazytown on the other hand of the aging spectrum butterfly is so mired in the sound of its time that it’s arguably the most Kitsch song on this or any less taking the rap rock genre to its most dull and melodic n crazytown may have had a chance to maintain their stature in the music scene if every other song on their album had been much harsher and obtuse charting at number one in 15 countries across the planet butterfly was a massive hit nonetheless before we reveal our number one pick here are a few honorable mentions because you had a bad number one who let the dogs out mohammet the archetype of the one-hit wonder the Baha men hit it big with one song and have worked diligently to reach those Peaks again with no success everybody this hit has somehow managed to become a regular feature at a slew of sporting events despite the fact that the target audience of those events is full of the last people you’d expect to enjoy the track ranked the third most annoying song of all time by Rolling Stone many consider it one of the worst songs of all time but it puts a smile on the faces of just as many do you agree with our list what’s your favorite cheesy one-hit wonder of the 2000 for more music top 10s published every day be sure to subscribe to

    Fun Fact: Crazy Town completely lifted Butterfly from a section in an instrumental Red Hot Chili Peppers song called Pretty Little Ditty from Mother’s Milk. It’s identical, even down to Flea’s trumpet. They just pasted a rap over it, gave it some slight variations, and lengthened it. I noticed several years later when the Peps released extended reissues of their early albums, they replaced the original Pretty Little Ditty with a longer, slightly different version. Can’t help but feel it had something to do with Crazy Town. Shame every one who says they love that song has zero clue who actually wrote it! 😆

    Haha 2 of the bands listed on here I saw in one single concert for my 13th birthday 😂 Otown was the closing/main act but Bahamen and Dream were openers. Bahamen seriously stole the show. They had so much energy and the crowd was jumping around with them. I was surprised and I'll never forget how great of a concert that was. That was in 2001.
