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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
