Five Metal Bands Who Should Break up Immediately

We've talked before about bands who we thought should break up here at Rocks Off, but frankly, I think metal deserves its own little corner of this argument. How come? Because there are just so damn many metal bands who reached their expiration date a long time ago but keep milking their fans for every last dollar.

I'm sorry to say, but metal in large part is a young man's game, as well as a genre that demands innovation and adaptation. Sure, we have our classics like Motorhead. I'd never ask Lemmy to try to adapt his style for modernity. But there's a whole lot of others that just need to quit already.
