Metal Insider’s Top 5: Most Bizarre Reunions

Honorable Mention: Methods Of Mayhem’s Unnecessary Return

Back in the old days, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee could throw together a rap/metal side project, put a single out with Limp Bizkit and Lil Kim on it (and a really subtle video with Lil Kim riding a rooster) and have the album it was taken from somehow go platinum. The late ‘90s were such a crazy time. Then the new millennium came along, everyone forgot about Methods of Mayhem, and the world was a better place for it.  Yet even though nobody was exactly clamoring for a reunion, Lee got the band back together in 2010 and put out their sophomore album, A Public Disservice Announcement, in 2010. The band was totally different with the exception of Lee, and it was a little more on the dancey side than the rap-metal one. It sold 2,900 copies its first week and faded so quickly that you probably forgot what band we were writing about before you finish ed this sentence.
