Was this a one-hit wonder in 1970… or the year 2000?

Are Frijid Pink and "Blue" from the same era?

The pop music of 2000 sounded much different from the pop music of 1970. Well, aside from that garage-rock revival led by the White Stripes.

But on paper? It can be hard to separate band names and song titles into different eras. Unless you remember these hit tunes.

We've gathered some one-hit wonders from 30 years apart. See if you can place them into the correct year!

If I knew the words to any part of the song it was 1970. If not it was 2000.🤓

When's the last time anybody heard "House Of The Rising Sun" on any radio station that wasn't either oldies or classic rock? Never heard of the group, though.

See, who says there wasn't a "Rapper" back in 1970? How did you score?

That was fun! :)

14/14. All I had to do was click 1970 for the ones I could sing from memory, and 2000 for the ones I'd never even heard of.
