When Did You Stop Loving Your Favorite Band?

You owned the posters. You saw all the shows. You bought the deluxe editions, because you cared that much. And now, the band that used to be your favorite has put out a new album — potentially Radiohead's The King of Limbs or Angles by the Strokes — and you shrug your shoulders. (Or worse: You haven't even downloaded it yet!) Falling out of love with your favorite band can happen to all of us, but we want to know when it happened to you. Is there an album you can point to as the moment it all went sour, or did you come to the gradual realization that you and that band you'd worshipped were simply growing apart?
