Top 5 Bands That, Unlike Weezer, Should Never Break Up -- No Matter How Bad They Get
|Terrible, agreed, but what else could they do?|
Punishment for trying to break it up: Tying you down with colorful sashes to administer a Botox overdose.
The only thing worse than Coldplay will be the band that tries to fill the sonic and cultural space of Coldplay after Coldplay has broken up. Chris Martin may be a kind, socially-minded individual, but having mastered the art of ignoring his ubiquitous, insipid piano ballads, we're not sure we could handle having to go through that again with a similar band.
Punishment for trying to break it up: Suffering through the next post-Brit-pop balladeers will be punishment enough.
|Decent people making indecent music -- but it could be worse.|
This is purely out of the hope that if Dave Grohl retains his main songwriting outlet, he'll keep doing what we really want him to do -- which is play drums in cool supergroups like Them Crooked Vultures. Foo Fighters hasn't dropped a good single since the '90s, but as long as Dave's happy enough to do weird shit on the side and hilariously threaten to sue Scissor Sisters, we're happy, too.
Punishment for trying to break it up: We'll sic Grohl's lawyers on your ass.
2. Green Day
Guess what? Green Day is still good. Not completely -- 21st Century Breakdown had its share of shudder-inducing power ballads -- but overall it wasn't bad for bunch of aging East Bay punk brats. And you should see the band's live show. We're always going to need blitzkrieg power pop, and you'll notice that Blink-182 isn't on this list.
Punishment for trying to break it up: Uh, living in a world where Blink-182 and Weezer still exist.
Punishment for trying to break it up: Listening to Lars Ulrich confess his innermost feelings for 20 years straight.
