11 Band Breakups We May Never Get Over

by at .

Hey, did you hear? One Direction broke up last week. Sort of, at least.

Zayn Malik quit the gorgeous boy band, prompting Twitter confusion, outrage and general depression.

As they attempt to figure out what the heck happened with Malik, it remains a troubling time for all 1D lovers - but they can at least find solace in the following fact:

They are not alone. They will get through this. Many other music fans have been forced to do so.

Going all the way back to 1970, famous groups have taken supporters by sad surprise by splitting up, sometimes in the primes of their careers.

It happened recently with The Jonas Brothers and a breakup befell other attractive bands such as The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.

But everyone ended up okay in the end (or better than okay if you're name is Beyonce or Justin Timberlake).

So wipe away those tears and then swipe through the above photo gallery, One Directioneers. It can only get better from here...
