With everyone from the Replacements to Outkast to Neutral Milk Hotel hitting the festival circuit this year, there are increasingly few bands left to reunite. It's especially true when you discount the Clash, the Doors, the Ramones and other bands that are missing their singer or other key members.  

Don't Hold Your Breath Waiting for a Byrds Reunion

Now we have a question for you: which band do you hope to see reunite next? Feel free to pick a stadium band like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, an indie legend like Uncle Tupelo or an underground act like Fugazi. Pick whichever dormant band you want, but just make sure they have enough living members to make a reunion feasible. Tommy Ramone and the New Ramones doesn't sound like a very exciting show. We will, however, accept bands like Guns N' Roses, Smashing Pumpkins or other groups touring without their most beloved lineup.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
