Each September, we recognize 40 new bands we look forward to listening to for years to come. And each December, we salute the veterans who've decided to pack up their knives and never ever get back together. This year's class of quitters includes an anarcho-pop one-hit wonder, a multi-platinum Aussie rock band, and a New York hip-hop trio with one proper album. We will miss them! R.I.P., and see you at Coachella 2020.

You didn't mention the Civil Wars? Them I knew, but the others in this useless video were nobodies and has-beens with a combined fan base of about 98 people.

Don't feel sad about these bands disappearing. You've probably never heard of them to begin with, radio garbage. Look around there's alot of talent out there, check out Tyler Lenius

I've heard of a few of these, hard to make it in music these days. I don't think people will be missing Chumpawumba or Jet.
