I caught the bass player jerking it in my mom's bathroom.

Bassist was the biggest douche ever, anything else besides metal was gay to him. He would play metallica and slayer riffs sloppily (and other small sections of other metal songs on his big ass huge and loud bass amp), couldn't learn a complete song, in his own mind he was the hot shit. He played everything in upstrokes and sloppy tremolo picking. Pretty much everyone hated him in the band, but we tried to tolerate him because he could get us gigs...

The other guitarist was a stoner, only showed up to 1/2 of the practices, very unreliable.

Drummer was the bassist s best friend, and as big as a douche as him. He would get into fights with him regularly (physical fights)

We had also some ego issues - who would play the solos etc. The bassist even wanted to participate in the solos, with his digitech guitar (!!) distortion pedal, man he sounded like shit

Jesus, it's always the bassist. I guess they really can only do downstrokes.

Our bassist showed up to our first practice without his bass, so we just played Halo 3 co-op instead. The band thing just wasn't meant to be.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

First band, we were all pretty young, but got reasonably well known on the local scene, playing as a grungey power trio, we went through a few drummers, and really it was the guitarist/singers band, he wrote the songs, etc
But I was cool with that, I liked his songs, until he wanted us to become The Klaxons (remember Nu-Rave? and How bad it was?) and I was offered a slot in another band, just to help out with some gigs for a month or so, I even organised practices for both bands to be on different says etc etc, but he just took exception to me playing bigger venues and such and split the band.
We did a reunion gig a few years back, remembered the old songs, had a great crowd, it was fun, but it'd run its course.

Second band fell apart because our drummer couldn't drum, our producer told us to fire him or he would, and then he went and fooled around with, and later screwed my girl friend at the time...then had a massive go at me when I casually mentioned it to his ex (who was friends with the other girl at the time) because he was also trying to get back with her and I "Ruined his chances"...DOUCHEBAG and the worst drummer I've ever played with...
Once turned round to me and said "I can't really hear bass frequencies, but I reckon I'm at least as good as Dave Grohl was around Nevermind..."

The guitarist and I actually had to leave the room

We were more of a "Having fun while playing" band and not a serious one, but let's just say it's not wise to date the lead singer.

drummer and me didn't like each other one bit, and we were the ones that wrote the music

consequently, the music sucked (more than it should have). i didnt like working with him, the guy didnt even know what a time signature was

Our singer's lyrics were total shit and he played the ****ing ukelele and it was just gaaaaaaaay (for lack of a better word)
That which does not kill us makes us cookies.

This thread is hilarious. I have been in a couple of bands, all of which consisted me, my bassist (and best friend) and either one or two other guys. At first, when we all blew ass at playing music altogether, it was just us being kids. Stupid kids. But fun nonetheless. My first serious band though (playing gigs, recording, etc.) was kick ass. I had made the transition from guitar to drums. I sucked but we had great chemistry together and would constantly write songs that we liked. It all was going well until our lead singer moved away. I was bummed. Years later I was asked to drum for another band which was fun too. We didn't get along quite as well as my last band but we toughed it out until just recently me and the bassist decided to call it quits because there was no love in for the music. It started to boil down to business, promoting, and no fun whatsoever. My philosophy in life is: if you ain't having fun and aren't getting paid for it then GTFO

Uh, no. We can pop and slap too. Also while we're playing bass.

we really sucked. we could play and write well together, both guitarists were actually very good. we were very unproductive when we got together and our jams would turn into drunk shitstorms. eventually people moved away to school etc. we always had fun with it but mainly we just werent that good
Last.fm So you can make fun of my taste in music
Youtube So you can make fun of my videos

Analysis of members:

I sucked at guitar and wasn't very confident in my playing.
The girl was talented
The drummer was too, we had chemistry in jamming
the bassist forgot all his notes and could barely ****ing play
the singer wanted to play pop covers all of the time

basically we played a big show and it just sort of died.

We only got together because we were the only musicians around, but it turned out we had pretty different tastes.

the singers sucked. the drummer was too busy flirting with the female vocalist.

The bass player insisted on singing too.

all htose could have been worked through, but the deal breaker was that the other guitarist wouldn't get rid of his line6 spider 2.

First band broke up because the other guitarist was doing his Masters at Uni, the bassist was moving to Australia, and the drummers mum had cancer issues so he wanted to focus on that

My second band that I was in, broke up after I left, but not because of me leaving. A few weeks after I left, the other guitarist decided that it might be a good idea to have sex with the vocalists pregnant girlfriend. YAY!! Also the bassist broke his elbow after running into a parked car. A year and a bit later the band is reforming however with a different line-up

A band I'm in now (Stormforge, albeit temporarily) used to be called Vallum Incendium. Initially that band went on hiatus/broke up for "creative" reasons, but I think humongous egos were the real reason they broke up, and a severe case of Dunning/Kruger syndrome, along with amusia. Its called Stormforge now with only the guitarist remaining from VI
