Something's Missing From Time's "Top Band Break-up's" List

Actually, a few. Feel free to take a stab, before I have time to write a full post when I get off the air ...


Okay, the list:
1. The Beatles
2. The Sex Pistols
3. The Supremes
4. The Pixies
5. Oasis
6. The Dorsey Brothers
7. The Smashing Pumpkins
8. Blondie
9. Talking Heads
10. N.W.A.

See it? See what's not there? Here's the hint: anyone between the ages of 12 and 32 who was near a radio on December 4, 1980, heard the text of the following press release.
"We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend, and the deep sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were."

I'm still sort of messed up over Soundgarden, personally.

I was only 10 at the time of their break-up but yes Led Zeppelin should be on this list.

Holy cow, I guess I hadn't heard Soundgarden's back together...suh-weet!!
