Exploding Hearts - Guitar Romantic
This band should have been huge. The Exploding Hearts wrote wonderful songs, playing their snotty power-pop-punk tunes with conviction. The band was returning home to Portland, OR from a show in San Francisco when they lost control of their van. On July 20, 2003, 3/4 of the group were killed. They left behind one brilliant album and a collection of odds n' ends that is equally brilliant. Another band where we are left asking what could have been.
