    You’re better, but you can’t beat this reference for conveying absolute suckiness. Although I will be totally honest and cop to *still* owning the Vanilla Ice cassette. Hey, I was in college! In West By God! What else was I supposed to listen to?!

    I saw Vanilla Ice in concert in Huntington, WV as a part of Marshall’s homecoming festivities in 1990 or 1991.

    What comparison did you expect – Daniel Powter and Danity Kane?

    And it could have been worse – they could have used the Baha Men.

    Hasn’t enough time passed to consider Vanilla Ice and Chumbawumba one-hit wonders?

    I’ll not apologize for my love of Tubthumping, though.

    Oh, I agree.  I guess my point was directed at the criticism of using dated examples of one-hit wonders.  By their nature, it seems, one-hit wonders are going to be dated.  If a band is relatively new and still making “relevant” music, well, no one’s going to be calling it a one-hit wonder.

    Isn’t a certain amount of time required to pass before a singer or band is considered a “one hit wonder”?
