Here's a guide to all the things that you wanted to forget about the last year.
1. Malcolm Young leaves AC/DC
Due to dementia, AC/DC's iconic rhythm guitarist was forced to quit the band a few years ago, but we're only learning about it now. The band doesn't sound the same without him.
2. Pink Floyd get beaten by Take That for most pre-ordered album ever on Amazon
Apart from beating Pink Floyd, Take That and its members' solo projects apparently took up half the top ten all-time pre-ordered list.
3. Jack Bruce dies
The legendary bass player and singer, a member of Cream, Ringo Starr's All Star Band, Robin Trower and more, passed away October 25th. He was 71.
4. Taylor Swift accidentally releases white noise, it sells like crazy
Just goes to show the sad state of the music industry...
5. Black Sabbath announce retirement
They'll release one last album, do one final tour and then call it quits.
6. Crazy Town are back
Yeah, that band nobody liked because they ripped off Red Hot Chili Peppers. Now they're coming back with a new song.
7. U2 release free album, plan hilariously backfires
The band's latest offering was free and automatically downloaded to every iTunes user's device. Apparently iTunes listeners don't like U2.
8. Richie Sambora leaves Bon Jovi
One of the most underrated guitarists ever, got kicked out, because Jon Bon Jovi didn't want to pay him his rightly earned cut of tour money.
9. Ted Nugent
10. Scott Stapp
Please see previous comment.
That's all folks! It can only get better from here!
