All but one of the last eighteen..... I've never heard of.

I'm surprised that Alanis Morissette didn't have a #1 from Jagged Little Pill.

@Doug There were a couple factors at play for Alanis not to get a #1 at the time.
A retail single had to be available for a song to be eligible to chart on the HOT 100. Labels did not release a lot of singles for popular songs in the 90's, and by 95/96, the single was pretty much dead. "You Oughta Know" was only released as a B-side to "You Learn" well over half a year after peaking at radio.
Also, "Hand In My Pocket" was not released as a retail single, neither was "Head Over Feet." "Ironic" was her best chance, peaking at #4.
