ONE HIT WONDERS

MC HAMMER

MC Hammer is often thought of as the quintessential one-hit wonder - the biggest song in America ('U Can't Touch This'), a flashy signature look (parachute pants) and worldwide adoration, only to have it all evaporate like a mirage and end up in bankruptcy court. Although to be fair Hammer isn't strictly a one-hit wonder, he also had reasonable success with a few other tracks before crashing and burning. Hammertime!
