It may be April Fool’s Day tomorrow, but Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction is no prank. Hysterical fans have cried, begged and pleaded for the 22-year old heartthrob to return. Nonetheless, many groups have broken up, leaving their fans and supporters broken. Here is a definitive list of the top five, most emotional band break-ups (time to grab some tissues).
5. Destiny’s Child
This 3 all girl group was very popular in the late 90’s, when music was at his highest point of popularity. The group consisted of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams. All of three of them are still close, and have all made their own music. Beyoncé also invited Kelly and Michelle to sing with her in the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, singing their popular song “Independent Woman” and Beyoncé’s song “Single Ladies.” It’s good to say that these three women are doing well after the sad departure.
4. ‘N Sync
Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC were the members of the popular band in the 2000’s, ‘NYSNC. They were supposed to go on a hiatus, but that didn’t happen, and eventually they did officially break up. Justin Timberlake, is the one out of the group that went to have a solo career, but they did all reunited to perform in the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Justin’s 15 minute performance.
3. One Direction
If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past week already, most of you have heard of the sad departure of Zayn Malik from the popular boy band One Direction. Many of the fans have been going to Twitter to let out their anger and sadness. Many as 2000 people have committed suicide to show how much they love Zayn. The rest of the boys are still continuing as a band, but Zayn just wants time to himself.
2. My Chemical Romance
The “emo” band as many people called them, had a great 12 year run at the music life. All the band members said that they loved the experiences they could experience, but that it had to come to an end. Some of the fans as well committed suicide because of the spilt. In 2014, the band put out a collection of their old and unheard songs for the fans.
1. The Beatles
And the saddest of all them is The Beatles. The four members of the English rock band held legendary statuses and their split left millions of fans devastated. They all branched off to do their own music, but they still collaborated once or twice. Their deaths are what made people even more devastated. Fans committed suicide because of their murders and deaths. Them splitting up left back the legacy of The Beatles and their music still influences tons of music today.
