We’re used to bands calling it quits, reuniting, calling it quits again, reuniting…it’s a bit of a treadmill, and it happens all the time. However, Jane’s Addiction may just take the speed record. Two weeks after calling it quits, the band’s back in action. See, it’s this kind of nonsense that made Motley Crue decide to sign a friggin’ cessation agreement so people would actually take the split seriously.
