Every year has its fair share of births and deaths, even when speaking of bands. They form, reform, and break up. We talk a lot about reunions, but many bands fade out and break up with barely a whisper. It's unfortunate because some of these bands were old favorites at one time.
Today we'll look back at some of the bands we lost this year. All had their reasons for breaking up, but we'll miss them regardless. For the purposes of this list, we're also including bands that went "on hiatus," as those things can last decades.
