On March 26, 2012, Jet announced on their Facebook page their dissolution of the band after 11 years.
"After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group. From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight."
They were best known for their 2003 debut single, "Are You Gonna Be My Girl."
Damn. Get Born was my jam when I was a kid.

Too bad their biggest hit was a total rip-off, and their entire career was a complete joke.
This is right under the Emmure news post.... I was very excited for about three seconds....
this band was my favourite in primary school
I came here to say that they finally found that Pitchfork review, but you people beat me to the punch.

Looping "Look What You've Done" forever. Definitely a blast from the past. Get Born is a great rock album.
Fifth grade.... Damn. Those were the days.
Forgot these guys were still around.
Yeah, I forgot these guys existed. Sucks a bit. Oh well.
Digging: Childish Gambino - Because The Internet

They had that one good song. And pretty much nothing else.
Kinda sucks, they had a few good songs
Their debut kicks some major ass

Chris Cester responded to the media debacle, stating in a Jared Story interview that the beat was taken from Motown, referring to a meeting between Iggy Pop and himself:
"It's funny because I asked him point blank about that. He said I was crazy. He said that when he and David Bowie were writing "Lust for Life", they were ripping off Motown's beat. It's funny that he said that to me because we also thought we were ripping off Motown more than "Lust for Life". To be honest with you that kind of annoyed me a lot, because I always thought it was really lazy. People just go well Lust for Life is more well-known so that's what they go for, but if you listen to a song like "You Can't Hurry Love" (The Supremes) I think you'll find its closer to "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" than "Lust for Life" ever was. And that's what Iggy said as well."
