One-hit Whatevers

These are a few songs that I admittedly enjoy... but from bands that I can't seem to tolerate or have otherwise disappointed me since. Mind you this is no indication that these bands are "One Hit Wonders", nor of their success, simply my personal opinion on one-time instances in which they got to me.
1OK Go
Get Over It

This and A Million Ways aren't too bad at all.
2Hot Hot Heat
Talk to Me, Dance With Me

Their first album is halfway decent as well, but that's about it.
3Franz Ferdinand
Take Me Out

This song rocks enough for me to forget temporarily while I'm listening to it that everything else they do is junk.

Another good song from a band with a new release that sounds sub-par.
5The Shins
New Slang

Otherwise these guys are lame.

It's just catchy.
7Coheed and Cambria
A Favor House Atlantic

Even more catchy but, and though I know people disagree with me on this, these guys aren't nearly as creative as they're made out to be.
Stockholm Syndrome

For whatever reason, when I first heard this on the radio while driving around, I [i]almost[/i] thought it was Radiohead coming out with an edgier sound. It's mostly my only recognition of Muse's ability.
9The Zutons
Pressure Point

I got this album because I dug this song so much only to realize that it is the only worthwhile track on it.
I Turn My Camera On

I really liked this and because of that thought they would have a completely different sound, but alas no.
11The Strokes

Okay, the Strokes aren't that bad I'll give, but this is the only one I really get into.
The Red

I wouldn't say I love this song or anything but when it first came out I was somewhat partial to these guys until their next single.
13Tegan and Sara
Walking With a Ghost

Great song. Awful album.
14The Hives
Hate to Say I Told You So

I'm convinced that this song was just a fluke success, but nonetheless I'll still sing along to it in my car.
15Phantom Planet
Big Brat

This one's a little different in that I hated Phantom Planet's first album, but when this single came out for the second one it kind of got me more interested in them.
16Kill Hannah

Save that the lead singer sounds like a woman, its still kind of a catchy song.
The Scientist

I absolutely despise Coldplay, mind you, but this is an incredible song (and video for that matter).
18Electric Six
Danger! High Voltage

Okay, maybe I just dug this because Jack White makes a guest appearance but it's a fun song.
