While there were a lot of great new bands that came on our radar this year, we also said goodbye to some favorites. Sorry to end the week on a bummer, but it’s time to pay our respects to the departed with an “In Memoriam” tribute video. Hopefully you’ve been paying attention to MySpace bulletins over the past twelve months as we hate to be the bearer of bad news. On the bright side, some of these acts will get back together in twenty years, presumably having skipped the drug overdoses and declarations of bankruptcy that precede reunions in Behind The Music.
Also R.I.P. Harp, No Depression, TRL, Paper Thin Walls, Muxtape, Shea Stadium. You will be missed. Well, TRL not so much.
