Black Eyed Peas go on Hiatus; Four Other Groups That Should Take a Break Too

This week the Black Eyed Peas announced at their Staffordshire show that it was the “last time we're going to be in England for a long time.” So yes, the group is taking a break, but they're not breaking up–at least, not according to Fergie and

Sure, there are pros and cons to the band going on hiatus, but we think these four bands should be more than eligible take a hike as well, after the jump.

Rebecca Black

After we made her video single go viral to 160 million views, she's now a
millionaire. Now she's got plans to put out a new single, “My Moment”
(complete with janky cover art), and a five-track EP.
What viral monster
have we created?

Listen: “Friday”

The Postal Service

Sure, the Postal Service duo put out what was worth a listen from
everyone, from casual listeners to corporate commercials. It really
doesn't matter, though, if performers themselves don't care. The Postal
Service started off without its performers Ben Gibbard and Jimmy
Tamborello even physically getting together, instead opting for sending
beats overseas for them to get sung over. Gibbard told Spinner “It's just not a
priority for either of us. So the next Postal Service record may or may
never happen.”
Instead of staying ambivalent to expectant fans, why not just say no?
And if they do shit out an album, then it'd be to their advantage,
because for the fans, something is better than nothing.

Listen: “Such Great Heights”

Insane Clown Posse

As a duo of horrorcore clowns, ICP failed to cover up their lack of
intelligible lyrics with fear. You have to give it to them,
though, when they invented the album concept of 'Joker's Cards,' which
offer warnings against wickedness and about the world's end. Basically,
it's the Saw series redone musically, with a twist of Christianity to
it. This concept allowed them to put out album after album with moderate success. They've put out a dozen of these musically horrific albums; that's
five more than Saw could muster up, even with 3D.

Please, someone suggest to them that they'd be better off pursuing wrestling careers at WCW anyway.

Watch: “Miracles”


So many people despise Nickelback, it's become a cultural phenomenon
where the band has taken on a larger-than-life definition of all things
horrible. But really, after a six-album-long march of uninspired
mediocrity, Nickleback has added absolutely nothing to humanity. It's
time to put out that fluttering candle.

Listen: “Rockstar”
