The Exploding Hearts are '''THE''' most depressing story in PunkRock history, no exceptions. They formed in Seattle in 2001, and consisted of singer/guitarist Adam Cox, bassist Matt Fitzgerald, guitarist Terry Six, and drummer Jeremy Gage (TheOtherWiki lists three other names under "former members" but explains nothing about them).

In July 2003 their van veered out of control and rolled off the road. Cox and Gage were killed instantly and Fitzgerald died later at the hospital. Six was left with scratches and bruises. You may now cry your eyes out.

* DeadArtistsAreBetter: While its a great album that got a ton of critical acclaim upon release, you have to wonder if ''Music/GuitarRomantic'' would have gotten into all those Best Albums of the 2000's lists if the band had lived.

They started out playing in small clubs throughout the town and got noticed quickly. Indie stations drooled over their music, while at the same time knowing full well their potential to sell out. Their catchy pop hooks gave them the possibility of becoming huge. They independently recorded ''Guitar Romantic'' in 2003 and released to critical acclaim. The party wasn't going to last though.

* BreakupSong -- "Modern Kicks", "Jailbird", "Sleeping Aids And Razor Blades", and a lot more.
* DeadArtistsAreBetter -- While its a great album that got a ton of critical acclaim upon release, you have to wonder if ''Guitar Romantic'' would have gotten into all those Best Albums of the 2000's lists if the band had lived.

* LyricalShoehorn -- Why these guys loved to screw around with their lyrics will never be known.
* ObsessionSong -- "Jailbird" and HOW!
* OneBookAuthor -- ''Guitar Romantic''.

* RhymingWithItself -- To go with painful rhyme, they do this a lot too.
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth -- Should be self- explanatory. However, it should be noted that there were epic riffs to go with it.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen -- Could have been rivals with GreenDay and Blink182 easily.

* EarWorm -- "I'm A Pretender"
* EpicRiff -- Every damn song they had.



* PainfulRhyme -- The one downfall of the band is that they loved generic rhyme schemes in their lyrics. For example: in "Sleeping Aids And Razor Blades" they rhyme "hard" with "retard", you may now groan.



* TearJerker -- Not their music, but their story. Oh, and to add to it, think about Terry Six and how he know has to [[SurvivorGuilt live with the painful memories of being the only surviving Exploding Heart]]. Just let it sink in.

Added DiffLines:

After the accident, Six returned to Portland and formed a band called The Nice Boys. The band released one album, ''The Nice Boys'', in 2006, but precious little since.

In 2006, the band's label issued ''Shattered'' which contained songs the band recorded during the sessions for the first album but intended for a second one, some singles and a couple rarities. Also included is a DVD containing five songs from their final show.
