Okay boys and girls, here we have 128 Classic One Hit Wonders, carefully chosen by us All (and none too soon, I might add ), which will be pitted against one another, Match by Match, Round by Round, weeding them all out until they get to the FINAL MATCH, which will have our two favorite OHWs face against one another to see which one emerges as Grand Champion of our latest Rock Wars!
Now this isn’t just a “What has it done, How Iconic is it, How much has it Sold” contest. This isn’t just which song is the more Classic or Legendary, but more of a which one do YOU like more, which do YOU feel you would rather listen to, and ultimately more deserving to move on.
Pretty basic really. Songs are matched up, you all vote on the one you like more, the winner goes to the Next Round, and we do this over and over again until the Rounds are Over. Easy. I do ask that you all give objective opinions and votes here, listening to All songs and arguments within this TOC with an open mind, beginning to end, and base your honest votes from that.
Lastly, I would like to state that all songs here in this TOC are to be considered OHWs for the purposes therein, and No One should cast votes against any one solely because you dont think it is in fact a OHW. Cast your votes, as always, on the song you like/enjoy more, not on whether you think it should be in this TOC or not. Any votes that state they are solely based on knocking a non-OHW song out, will not be counted.
So without further adieu, why dont we get started with our First of Many matches to come, in HCRs latest Rock Wars, Favorite One Hit Wonders!
So what say you all. Which of these songs will move onto the Next Round, and which will make us wish they were No Hit Wonders?
