10 Bands That Should Make a Comeback in 2017
Come on, Gwen, get the band back together.
Often, we find ourselves reminiscing, overwhelmed by intense feelings of nostalgia for the days when music was what we considered good — when musicians possessed skills that inspired us and composed lyrics that we’d never forget. But over time, more and more of those bands and artists we grew up with unfortunately parted ways for other reasons. Since you’re still brokenhearted about them (and Guns
Antwan "Big Boi" Patton and André "André 3000" Benjamin were in a league of their own, combining Southern rap with various sounds and lyrical intricacies that resulted in some of
My Chemical Romance
The boys of My Chemical Romance trolled the internet and diehard emo fans pretty hard back in September 2016, when they posted some cryptic tweets, videos, and dates on their social media containing only the date “9/23/16” and the piano intro from “Welcome to the Black Parade.” Naturally, tears were shed and everyone lost their minds, assuming it was all in preparation for a huge tour announcement.

After brief reunions in 2007 and again in 2011, it seems like RATM would never see the light of day again. For now, the closest we’ll get is watching the iconic musicians perform their songs with Chuck D and B-Real fronting them under the new moniker Prophets of Rage.
After watching Aubrey O'Day, Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard, and Aundrea Fimbres battle it out against thousands of other girls for a shot at stardom in Diddy’s third season of Making the Band, it was no secret that this R&B bunch was destined for greatness. Their televised beginnings helped launch their career, and they became the first female group in Billboard history to have their first two albums debut at the top of the charts.
