Top 5 Bands That Should Make A Comeback In 2012

Inevitably, most bands will break-up eventually – unless you’re The Rolling Stones, who seem to outlast everything, including dinosaurs and several World Wars. As fans, we shed tears and pray for reunions, reconciliations and Dr. Phil interventions. Many times, like the plot from a Hollywood feel-good film, they’ll hear our cries, come back (for a ridiculous amount of money that bankrupts a promoter or two) and then ride off into the sunset again.

Anyway, below are the 5 bands that MusicReview would like to see make a comeback in 2012.

Stabbing Westward

Alternative rockers Stabbing Westward formed in 1985 and disbanded in 2002. Apparently, this is another case of handbags between members, which is impeding any possible reunion for the time being. Come now, guys, give each other a kiss; you might like it!


Look, they only went on an indefinite hiatus last year, but Thursday is a crucial cog of the modern rock scene. An immensely talented, diverse band that deserved more recognition than they received. Hopefully, they’ll miss us, too.

Led Zeppelin

In a way, Zeppelin are doing the right thing by stepping aside and not attempting to taint their musical legacy – but we’re sure we aren’t the only ones who feel that a Zeppelin reunion show would be a million times better than any current A list concert. Now, if only Robert Plant wouldn’t be so stubborn…

The Distillers

The Distillers might’ve been a short-lived punk band, but they left a lasting impression during their 6 year career from 1998-2004. You’ll still catch us spinning 2003’s Coral Fang from time-to-time.


Oh, this will happen. Once Liam and Noel Gallagher have it out in a cage match like 2 WWE wrestlers competing for a spot in Chyna’s new porno, they’ll be buds again, record a new album, go out on a world tour, fight and break up again. Just trust us on this one; Oasis isn’t finished.

Who would you like to see make a comeback in 2012? Let us know below.

    “Now, if only Robert Plant wouldn’t be so stubborn…”

    Personally i think its John Bonham that is being stubborn… or a stiff… and yes i know he has a son – But he doesn’t touch the glory that was dubbed the ‘Shark incident’.

    Definitely Soundgarden !! They were arguably the best of all the Alternative bands, in part because their scope was far more wide-ranging than almost any other band of the era. In a way, a lot like Led Zeppelin, drawing influences from folk, Eastern & many other genres, using unusual time signatures, etc., superb musicianship & of course, Chris Cornell’s always compelling vocals & obscure but intriguing lyrics. Have only heard snippets of their new CD “King Animal”, plan to buy it, so far, sounds like they’re returning to form. Never saw them live but would LOVE to see a live show featurng many of their classics (so many good ones – Black Hole Sun, Fell on Black Days, Spoonman, Pretty Noose, Burden in My Hand, too many to name) as well as new material…
