One Direction have said goodbye (FOR NOW) to their boyband days, and while their hiatus has officially begun, many fans are not feeling optimistic.
But fear not! Because here are five other bands that survived their hiatus and came back as kickass as ever:
1. No Doubt
Believe it or not, No Doubt formed in California, way back in 1986 and are somehow still going strong today. They have had decades of success, but that doesn't mean they didn't have their bad times.
In 2004, the band took a break so Gwen could release her own album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. They bounced back together in 2008, and then announced their second hiatus in 2013. And yet, nearly 30 years later (!!!) No Doubt are touring together again.
2. Backstreet Boys
Sadly, most of the early 2000s boybands are a thing of the past (NYSYNC, you'll always be in our hearts), but the Backstreet Boys just keep on coming back for more.
The guys have taken several hiatuses over the years but are currently working on their ninth studio album.
3. Fall Out Boy
Pete and they boys took their hiatus back in 2009 and then came back together in 2013 to release Save Rock And Roll, their fifth studio album.
And they haven't stopped since then, with many of their songs featuring big pop artists like Demi Lovato and Avril Lavigne.
4. Blink 182
All the pop-punk fans out there will know Blink 182 have had many ups and downs. In 2005, Tom DeLonge decided he was finished with the band and their label issued a statement announcing Blink's "indefinite hiatus."
Then in 2009, the band came back together again for a reunion tour and in 2011, released a full-length album called Neighbourhoods. But in 2015, Tom decided he was done again.
5. Foo Fighters
Dave Grohl might not let a broken leg get in the way, but any Foo Fighter fans will know the group have had their fair amount of breaks back in the day.
And as it turns out, after the band released their free EP, Saint Cecilia, in November, they officially took on a hiatus. But we're sure they'll be back soon.
