    I thought a girl sung we don't have to take our clothes off. Blind Melon could have been great. They were great.

    Calling Quiet Riot ,Blind Melon ,and Slade one hit wonders just shows you don't know anything about music.

    "..lesser known band Slade..." Seriously? Slade are legendary!

    To call Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon a "one hit wonder" shows how little that the creators of this video know about music, or the impact that people and bands can have on music. Had Shannon not died then Blind Melon would have been massive, in much the same way that Mother Love Bone would have been had Andrew Wood not died.

    DJ Eazy Rock was not the person you showed. That is Rob Base. DJ Easy Rock was the "DJ" of the group. Rob Base is still alive.

    "Lesser known band SLADE?!" Do some fcking research. For one, total up how many hits SLADE had in the U.K. when they were one of the biggest acts on the glam rock scene (glam rock, NOT glam metal -- glam rock included other "unknowns" like David Bowie and T. Rex and Roxy Music). Quiet Riot covered a classic Slade song, and that plus "Mama were all crazee now," another Slade song, gave Quiet Riot their only significant hits.

    I'm so glad I've never stumbled and fall into a huge pile of cocaine like those guys having an accidental overdose.

    Cool video, BUT to say Quiet Riot (only) made it to #5 on the charts does kinda spit on the band. If you've ever been an artist (which I'm sure you haven't) you would know just how hard that mark is to get.

    Shannen Hoon was a major talent. He could have been a major face in the 90s grunge scene

    Nikki Swift, Quit Riot was NOT a One Hit Wonder Band. I am going to stop watching right here at #5 because Its clear you dont know the true definition of one hit wonder. Quit Riot?? Really, THUMBS DOWN

    When they say "lesser known" I think you have to take into consideration this generation. When Kanye West, Rhianna and Paul McCartney did that song together, there were people who LEGITMATELY thought Kanye had discovered Paul. A whole generation who know nothing about the Beatles. Kids today who think music from 2000-2010 is OLD SCHOOL.
