Poor Chumbawamba. Up until this past July, they must have thought nobody cared about them. The British anarchist rock group hadn't received much press since "Tubthumping" fell off the charts 12 years ago. Nothing they did seemed to gain any traction, so calling it quits seemed like the best move. "That’s it then, it’s the end," read a message on their website. "With neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion." Suddenly, "Chumbawamba" was trending on Twitter, and seemingly every other person on Facebook was cracking jokes about "Tubthumping." Some said they'd get up again, while others were confident their knockdown would be permanent. Most expressed shock they still existed at all. The whole thing lasted for days. It's the horrible paradox of a forgotten band, or most any forgotten entity in entertainment: Nobody cares about you until you're dead. The good news is that all bands can reunite. "We do, of course, reserve the right to re-emerge as Chumbawamba doing something else entirely (certainly not touring and putting out albums every two or three years)," they wrote in their statement. "But frankly, that’s not very likely. Thirty years of being snotty, eclectic, funny, contrary and just plain weird. What a privilege, and what a good time we've had."
