|If You're Not Elite....|
Then you're a faggot. List is bands who've met an early, unfortunate demise.
After a quick rise and even faster fall, the band most notoriously known for "Kick Out the Jams" disbanded due to pathetic album sales and hostilities within the band.
Scoring a few hits in the early 90's(most famous for "I Got a Girl"), Tripping Daisy wasn't just an average 90's band with their psychadelic-pop rock sensibilities. Unfortunately, the death of guitarist Wes Berggren by O.D. led to the demise of the band, but even worse, led Tim DeLaughter to form the Polyphonic Spree.
Ian Curtis was a troubled young man, so when he committed suicide, it wasn't that unexpected. Unfortunately, his death caused a shift in sound, name, and influence of the band.
|4||The New York Dolls|
Even though they've "reunited" several times over the past six years, it's not really a reunion due to the fact that Thunders, Kane, Murcia, and Nolan are all deceased.
Post-grunge band that was set to release their debut album when an auto accident took the lives of their vocalist, bassist, and tour manager. Post-humously scored a minor radio hit with "Mighty K.C."
|6||Buddy Holly & the Crickets|
Once called the "single most influential creative force" in rock 'n' roll, Holly was one of the pioneers of the early sound that became as such. Holly died at age 23 in 1959, ending what would have been a promising career and leaving a legacy that some still use as influence.
Shannon Hoon's death might not have immediately ended Blind Melon, but it halted their progress completely from the time of his death(1995) until their official disbandment(1999). Known mainly for the song "No Rain," Blind Melon was able to garner success with their psychadelic pop rock despite Hoon's constant heroin abuse.
Sometimes lumped in to the "nu-metal" movement due to their associations with acts like Sevendust, Snot was a step above their contemporaries. Unfortunately, the untimely death of Lynn Strait all but ended progress, but did spawn a tribute album, including the song "Angel's Son."
|9||Mother Love Bone|
After a brief sting in rehab, Andrew Wood, lead vocalist, was found dead in 1990 of a heroin overdose. One of the bands that was pushing the grunge movement forward at its "inception," they were to be one of the sound's prized bands. Despite that, the only two things worth anything to come from this is "Apple," the band's first and ONLY release with Wood, and the Alice in Chains song "Would?," a tribute to the late Andrew Wood.
Up until 1986, Metallica seemed to be at the forefront of speed/thrash metal, pushing forward with punishing basslines and impressive speed. However, the death of Cliff Burton ended that, as it sent Metallica and it's members on a never-ending spiral of mediocrity and greed, ending what was to be a promising legacy that would have lasted forever.
