Rock ‘n roll history is rife with bands that break up and reunite many years later only to release, well…not so great albums. But for some of the most iconic artists of all time, we’ve watched them burn out instead of fade away. Whether it’s due to the death of a prominent band member or tensions that led to the dissolution of the group, these artists just simply weren’t able to continue. And though they might have felt like abrupt endings at the time, the good news is that some of these groups ended on very high notes, releasing great albums – in some cases even putting out the best collections of their entire careers. From The Beatles to Simon & Garfunkel, Nirvana to The White Stripes, rock’s past is filled with examples of phenomenal artists releasing arguably their best work toward the end of their existence. Here’s a list of the 10 greatest farewell albums in rock history, records that signified the end of the bands, but the beginning of their legacies.

Tomorrow’s MTV Video Music Awards will feature 2014’s hottest performances. However, if history has taught us anything, it’s that artists can bring down the house while making egregious fashion fails. Miley Cyrus twerked her way toward infamy last year, yet her forgettable ensemble looked like it came from a retailer’s discount bin.

With the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards just days away, we are looking back on some of our favorite moments and highlights from the past 30 years of the ceremony honoring the best of music video world. While there have been a number of ups and downs, no iteration of the VMAs surpasses the 1999 ceremony. It was — hands down, no argument — the best. The year itself was one of the best for music with the introduction of Jennifer Lopez’s singing career, the explosion of TRL, and the return of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

With all of that in mind, the MTV had a lot to celebrate. Led by Chris Rock, the last ceremony of the ‘90s turned out to be the last great VMAs. It had everything from Diana Ross jiggling Lil Kim’s boob to Lauryn Hill winning Video of the Year.
