R.I.P. Jet

    I have the terrible, awful, saddening news to report that Australian rock outfit Jet has called it quits. What? You don’t remember them? Of course you do! Remember how everyone called them the Shitty Beatles — that was Jet right? — and they had a couple of hits because they ripped off other bands make it big at the same time? Well, after three albums, two EPs, and one compilation, the band has decided to hang it up. You can read their final message to their fans, via Facebook, below. [CoS]
