Everyone keeps saying how terrible 2016 was… and they’re right! Just look at all this awful stuff that happened.

2016 will be remembered as the year of the celebrity death… well, until 2017 starts claiming beloved entertainers. The music world lost some legends in 2016, starting early with David Bowie last January. It got even worse later with the sudden passing of Prince and former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza.

Some of our favorite bands called it quits in 2016. The most soul-crushing may have been The Dillinger Escape Plan. Never disappointing with an album, Dillinger will end their recording career on the back of Dissociation, an excellent release which landed high on our 20 Best Metal Albums of 2016 list.

Black Sabbath also spent 2016 saying goodbye to fans around the world. The heavy metal blueprinters’ farewell tour is already sad, but the fact that Sabbath weren’t able to mend fences with drummer Bill Ward gave fans a reason to sulk.
