Just Music 2018: Round 3 - Failed Followups by DixonD

I think we should destroy the bogus capitalist process that is destroying youth culture.


Quiz Description

Name these One Hit Wonders from their failed followup singles. For this quiz, a OHW is an artist who only reached the Top 40 in the US once.

At TCONA, this was a Geeks Who Drink-style "Sooner or Later" round. Teams could hand in their answers after hearing the failed followup question for extra points, or wait to hear the hit song for normal points. Since there's no way to do that kind of quiz on Alpaca Farm, I'll be giving extra clues about the artists instead.
