Surprisingly, The Beatles qualify as they only actually had two number one hits! ("Love Me Do" and "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?")

Jimmy Sommerville had a hit with Bronksi Beat, the Communards and solo.

I have one vinyl LP of theirs when they were just Red Rider, As Far As Siam, the song that made them popular in the early 80's was Lunatic Fringe which I still listen to on rare occasion (I say rare because I don't listen to my albums nearly as much as I used to).
