The Popdust Files: 00s one-hit wonders, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, The Darkness

#4 The Darkness, “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” (2003)

What It Was: A glam-rock masterpiece that had windows cracking all over America as listeners tried to emulate lead singer Justin Hawkin’s sky-high falsetto.

What Happened Next: Follow-up LP One Way Ticket to Hell…and Back was met with general indifference, and eventually the stresses of being a glitter-and-spandex band in the age of jeans and T-shirts got to the Darkness: They disintegrated in the middle of the ’00s.

Where Are They Now?: The Darkness reunited in 2011 after spending years on separate projects, and things seem to be headed in a positive direction for the band. Their third album, Hot Cakes, sold well in their native UK and they’ve been tapped to open for fellow glam enthusiast Lady Gaga on her upcoming Born This Way Ball tour.
