Quiz Description

Need to bone up on your Billboard Chart history? Ever get a question at pub quiz about a one-hit-wonder and you scream in frustration? Then this series of quizzes will help you! I'll be talking about artists that only had ONE song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. I'll be doing a quiz or three (there's a lot of these songs) for every decade that the Hot 100 has been around. So, get your music brains on and let's begin! Let's go back to the greatest decade of music: the 1990s: the time of wonder(walls), teen pop, and not having to take your shoes off before you got on an airplanes.
