Each band has its own reasons for keeping on or just breaking it off. It could be due to creative issues, money, or just moving on because of growing a family. However, there are some that just have silly or petty reasons why they just disbanded. Here are 5 bands that broke up for petty reasons.

Liam Wanted to Advertise His New Clothing Line In the Oasis Tour Program

Oasis was the English rock band that was supposed to be the next Beatles. While they did sell over 75 million, it’s very slim to none they will get back together. Liam and Noel Gallagher have literally bumped heads on various occasions. However, the final straw for Noel was Liam promoting his clothing line on the same Oasis Tour they were out to do for the fans. Noel said that Liam demanded that he promote his clothing brand in the tour programs. Noel wasn’t having that and left because he felt as if Liam wasn’t looking out for the fans who were there for their music.

The Wanted Broke Up Due to Their Reality TV Show

This group was to be the Scooter Braun’s version of “One Direction.” While they enjoyed a few nice hits and touring across the world for some years, they announced their hiatus back in 2014. Apparently, there were a lot of things going on behind the scenes. Their E! reality show did them in. A feud happened between member Max George and Siva’s fiancee Nareesha, as they moved into the boy’s party house. Siva sided with his fiancee and things just couldn’t be resolved.

Simon & Garfunkel Broke After Garfunkel Took an Acting Job and Didn’t Let Simon Know

The folk-rock duo started out singing harmonies at recess to selling over 100 million records worldwide. Filmmaker Mike Nichols cast them both in a 1970 film adaptation of the novel “Catch-22.” The problem is that Nichols cut Simon, but kept Garfunkel. Garfunkel didn’t let Simon know because he thought he would quit the band after telling him the news. Unfortunately, the breakup happened anyway.

The Kinks Broke Up After Ray Davies Stomped on His Brother’s Birthday Cake

The Kinks were hot in the 1960s and a part of the British music invasion that stormed the U.S. The band was together for 32 years even with Ray and Dave Davies bickering back and forth. When Ray stomped on Dave’s cake in self-indulgent speech, Dave just couldn’t take it anymore and left the band.

Cream Broke Up Because They Played Too Loud

Cream consisted of a super-group which comprised of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. They only had a two-year run because each of them was trying to outdo each other. They just had big egos with loud Marshall amps. Baker’s hearing got damaged in the last year of their band. Even Eric Clapton went deaf for a while.
