Band Reunions That Nobody Asked For
Have you ever looked at a tour listing, seen a particular band's name, and had to do a double-take? Perhaps you said to yourself, "Seriously? They're still around?" or, perhaps more harshly, "Wait, didn't they die?" These are such bands that chose to reunite when no one was asking for it: the ones who have walked back onto the stage for an encore only to find that the crowds had already left.

Later this year, boy band 98 Degrees will be reuniting for one last performance at the Mixtape Festival. This stands in spite of the facts that A.) boy bands are not nearly as prevalent today as they were in the 90s, and B.) the members of 98 Degrees are no longer boys. And considering the music was originally written with a pre-teen girl demographic in mind, perhaps having it be sung by men currently in their thirties isn't the best idea. On the other hand, if the goal was to re-capture the original audience of pre-teens, now all in their twenties, then we can look forward to what may be the most depressing crowd at a concert in history.
