The last few years certainly haven't been short on reunions. If you were in a band that reached cult status years after your disband, you may just be headlining festivals over current major selling artists who worship the stage you didn't play on for ten years. What makes us yearn for the reunion itself? Not every band went out on top to some, but some of us never even got a chance to make that judgement until years later. Still, no one can deny that a little nostalgia never hurt anyone.

I think the biggest incentive is when a band disbands after writing something so special with no follow-up. It's a Nolan film with a closer that keeps us guessing, "Well?! Is that it?! Need MOAR!" While...

Last week blogs went buzzing about the departure of two members from Chiodos. Speculation also spread like wildfire about a possible return to the group from former frontman Craig Owens. This week I've been jotting down some thoughts on why an original line-up of any band is so important to us. What makes one person's addition or subtraction so crucial to any band? Do we sometimes hold onto the past so much, that we constantly base our future expectations on one album or song written years earlier? Give the piece a read, and let us know your thoughts on it in the replies. I'm very interested in the examples you guys come up with on this one.

In light of yesterday's news of reunions by both At the Drive In and Refused (as well as many reunions to date), I've given some thought to seeing the past moments we cherish being played out in the present. After reading this, hit the replies and let us know your favorite moment that no reunion could ever recreate. Was it in a basement? Was it with less than 50 people? Did the performance floor you, and at that moment, did you know that particular band would be something special years later?

In light of today's news that rocked the hardcore community, what are your thoughts on reunion shows? I wrote a little something here, but I want you guys to hit the replies to talk about the pros and cons. My friends in As Cities Burn are doing a one-off in December, but will it be like seeing them in the small venues and churches back in the day back home? Will I still have that same feeling? I'm covering Fun Fun Fun Fest next weekend, a festival known for its many reunion sets - and this year is no different. What reunions have you seen that have been phenomenal? What reunions didn't live up to your expectations and why do you think they didn't?
