About This Quiz

Do you hold a special place in your heart for one-hit wonders? We've compiled a list of them that hit the charts in the 1960s. If you think you know every one-hit wonder of the decade, take this quiz to find out how much you really know.

We're gonna be honest. In our opinion, the best one-hit wonder of the 1960s was "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!," by Napoleon XIV. This song was the stuff of nightmares for many kids of the '60s, and if you're old enough to remember it, we bet you agree with us. The song was Napoleon XIV's only chart topper in the U.S., reaching number three on the Billboard Charts. The song was about a guy who was going mad after breaking up with his girlfriend. But what was even crazier than the hit single was the single's B-side. The song on the B-side was "!aaaH-aH ,yawA eM ekaT ot gnimoC er'yehT," which is They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" backward... yes, backward. And the entire B-side of the single was "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" played backward. Additionally, the name of the artist on the B-side was VIX NOELOPAN, which is, you guessed it, Napoleon XIV spelled backward. This guy had issues.

Take this quiz so you can brag to your friends about how much you know about one-hit wonders of the 1960s.
