A tribute to some of our favourite blink-and-you'll-miss-them superstars of the '00s.
Noughties one-hit wonder Sandi Thom recently got her name into the headlines for the first time in nearly a decade last week.
Sadly, it was not for reasons she would have wanted, as her tearful, expletive-strewn rant on Facebook went viral as she attacked radio playlisters for rejecting her new single ‘Earthquake’.

Those of you with long musical memories may recall Thom, the archetypal one-hit wonder who rocketed to stardom back in 2006 with her first single ‘I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)’. That success also shifted over 300,000 copies of her debut album Smile… It Confuses People.
However, she’s suffered declining commercial fortunes in the subsequent nine years, with only two of her last 12 singles charting in the UK, and the rejection of her latest single ‘Earthquake’ appears to have broken her spirit altogether, as she posted a tearful and foul-mouthed video venting spleen at the BBC and commercial radio conglomerate Bauer.
