I was reading Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time issue and saw that the Sex Pistols only released one album. I think that's really interesting since so many people I know really like them. But it got me thinking.
What other bands only released one album? I'd think that if a band was good enough to get signed to a label they'd get a chance to make a second album. And that if they weren't that good anyway they wouldn't have been signed.
For the purpose of this question live albums, compolations, and generally stuff like that which isn't a regular studio album don't count.
I also already know about Temple of the Dog. I think that's cheating a little bit since they only got together to make a tribute song. But they did end up making an entire album.
