5. Superheroes
This Danish band broke up this year after three new-wave inspired pop releases. They were getting better and better, and were one of the more fashionable bands out there. Sad to see them go.

4. Le Sport
Rather shortly after they released their excellent Pet Shop Boys inspired debut album, this Swedish duo called it quits. I wonder how much my autographed copy of their cd is worth now??

3. Elkland
After releasing one of the finest synth-pop records of the last ten years, America's Elkland disbanded. The blow is somewhat dampened by the fact that lead singer Jon formed a new duo (Goat Explosion) with quite a similar sound. Now if they'd only get an album out...

2. Protocol
What makes this UK band's break-up even more depressing is that we never got an album from them! After teasing the record-buying public with three fantastic rock/pop single releases, the band all but disappeared. And, recently word came out that they've broken up. I for one hope their unreleased album does not stay unreleased.

1. The Darkness
I'm well aware that The Darkness had its fair share of detractors, but I was really starting to enjoy their descent into a sound that became even more Queen-esque. They were getting better, but now have tragically been cut short.

protocol split??? NOOOOOOO! You could've prepared me for this. I had no idea. Sob.

Oh well onwards and upwards (though still a little sad!)

Sad, isn't it? I just found out about this a few weeks ago and was devastated!
