Bands which are Broken Up Song Meanings

Nothing lasts forever! These are some of the more notable bands that left their mark on music history, so they're remembered, but exist no more, so their passage is missed. Of course, even break-ups may not last forever, so some of these groups may eventually reform with one or two members under a new name, reunite for brief stage appearances, or even start all over again like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Bands break up for all kinds of reasons. Remember that musicians have to eat and a band is just another kind of business, so if the group's members just don't feel the money, that's one reason to hang it up. "Artistic differences" are commonly cited in other cases, where three guys want to go country and the fourth wants to go industrial metal. Some artists simply outgrow their bands, moving on to a new stage in their muse's journey. And finally, some bands just get recruited out of existence, or one member dies and the rest just can't bring themselves to go on.
