Trigger's Broom of bands (no original members)


#1

Here’s a classic:

Seems like GWAR are also this sort of band:

Other examples?

Background:


#2

Sorry to go off on a tangent, but this is a fine example of why I don’t fucking like Only Fools and Horses (and so apparently am not a real British person).

It’s an amusing idea, absolutely torn apart by delivery, timing, the fucking wait and silly faces afterwards. Jesus.

Anyway I can’t think of any bands like this off the top of my head, other than the Sugababes.


#3

good song on the topic


#4

Sugababes are the obvious one, I referenced them and MSK in a Uni Philosophy essay


#5

napalm death & geto boys*

*haven’t fact checked this so may well be nonsense. happy to assume I am correct though


#6

Technically Napalm Death although their current line-up has been together since the 80s

Hopesfall although they’ve now reformed with their original line-up


#7

TWIABP - very nearly there, only one original member left (I think) and that’s the bassist.


#8

I can’t think off hand what TWIABP stands for but clearly this doesn’t count!


#9

:stuck_out_tongue: The world is a beautiful place and I am no longer afraid to die.

c’mon it’s very close and the rate they swap members he’ll be gone soon enough!


#10

Oh another Grindcore suggestion is Cattle Decapitation, always pondered whether this was partly due to the early line-up featuring members of The Locust


#11

I have never heard of that band.


#12

They’re a ‘big’ name in the emo revival scene. But a bit post-rock(?) sort of thing as well.


#13

Avril Lavigne


#14

(quite enjoy it tbh)


#15

Underoath


#16

No idea who these fuckers are, but Aaron Gillespie being in at the start and now surely discounts them?


#17

Reformation, though? I’ll give it to him as they certainly were at one point an example of this.


#18

I forgot that they reformed


#19

My information came from your image.

Are they any good?


#20

In places, yes. Not heard any of their later albums, but if you’re into early-2000s screamo / post-hardcore / whatever, then they had a few decent songs.
