The Exploding Hearts were a fucking amazing band from Portland. They released one album and then crashed their van driving home from San Francisco a little over 7 years ago. Three of the four band members died.

Their outtakes/unreleased/singles album further cements their brilliance. And they were all in their very early 20s. Honestly, it makes me sad any time I read about them. They could have been absolutely massive and could have made so much more great music.











Anyway, please share other bands/artists who died too young, dissolved under too much pressure, did too many drugs and stopped playing, etc. And listen to the Exploding Hearts.
