8. HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH: All right, to be fair, they didn't split up officially until last year. But, really, when was the last time Hootie and his blowfish rocked your world? Circa 1995, I'm thinking, by way of "I Only Wanna Be With You." Last year they announced their kinda-sorta split when Darius Rucker said he was pursuing solo work for a couple years. If his first album isn't called "Just Hootie," I'm gonna be outraged.
Rucker has since backpedaled saying they're not totally broken up and that they might keep playing every now and then. Come on, guys, everyone knows the only way you all will have a kick-ass comeback reunion tour is by breaking up when you're no longer relevant (about 10 years late for that), claim you hate each other, and then play a killer surprise set at Bonnaroo. We'll be waiting.
