NEW YORK -- As far as one-hit wonders go, Daniel Powter (POW'-ter) is king of them all _ for this decade, at least.

Powter, whose hit "Bad Day" reigned on top of the Billboard pop charts for five weeks in 2006, was named as the decade's top one-hit wonder by Billboard.

The magazine describes one-hit wonders as acts whose second hit did not reach the top 25; they only included acts from 2000 to 2007, since someone from last year might just be taking a break.

No. 2 on their list is the Terror Squad for "Lean Back"; No. 3 is Crazy Town with "Butterfly"; No. 4 is MIMS with "This Is Why I'm Hot"; and No. 5 is D4L _ remember them? _ with "Laffy Taffy."
