When Swedish hardcore/punk band Refused broke up in 1998, their last show was in a basement in Harrisonburg, VA. When they came reunited for a series of shows in 2012, they were a draw at Coachella, playing in front of thousands of people 14 years after their last album was released. Their subsequent tour was nothing less than a massive success. Their last show was in December of 2012, and they have no plans to reunite again. That’s actually pretty awesome, since they’re sticking to their beliefs and not beating a dead horse. Yet they were so comfortable and commanding on big stages that if they were to actually put an album out, and put the same intensity into it as they did their live shows, they would absolutely dominate.
