Is it a 'Bad Day' for your favorite one-hit wonder?

The best-o'-the-decade lists are coming in fast and furious now -- DeRo's music picks will be coming shortly to his blog -- and we love Billboard's list up today of the aughts' best one-hit wonders.

The one-hitter of the 21st century thus far? Daniel Powter's "Bad Day."

Powter's "Bad" song reigned on top of the Billboard pop charts for five weeks in 2006. It's also been licensed to films, commercials, TV soundtracks, you name it. For a while, you couldn't turn on an electronic device without hearing it.

Billboard's definition of a "one-hit wonder": an act whose second hit did not reach the top 25; they only included acts from 2000 to 2007, since someone from last year might just be taking a break.

The rest of the list is ...


Lean Back - Terror Squad


Butterfly - Crazy Town


This Is Why Im Hot - Mims


Laffy Taffy - D4L


Youre Beautiful (Clean Edit) - James Blunt

7. The best song on the list, ahem ...

Crazy - Gnarls Barkley


Hit Em Up Style (Oops!) - Blu Cantrell


Inside Your Heaven - Bo Bice


He Loves U Not (Radio Mix) - Dream

What's your favorite one-hit wonder? "99 Luftballoons"? "Groove Is in the Heart"? "Cruel to Be Kind"? Bring it ...
