How on earth will we ever ask anyone to be our girl again? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is true. Jet has broken up. It seems as though the fast-paced Australian rockers, whose hits “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” and “Cold Hard Bitch” blew up American radio waves, have had enough of each other.
They have posted this to their website:
“A Message To Our Fans: After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group. From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight.”
Personally, Jet’s tunes occupied a decent part of my adolescence, and knowing that they have called it quits marks a somber day for me. They had three albums, Get Born, Shine On, and Shaka Rock. The first two were relatively popular worldwide, going Platinum and Gold in the US respectively, but the band had seen less receptive results with their third release.
