Went with The Verve based merely on principle.
Just out of interest, what was considered the 'one hit' on both counts?
I would argue "Bitter Sweet Symphony" from The Verve and "Song 2" from Blur (the woo hoo song). Arguably, Blur had other hits in the United States, but I'm not sure anything charted significantly. Both bands are HUGE in Britain.
I think "Country House" got some airplay here, so I may have overextended on Blur being a one-hit wonder, but The Verve certainly is.
