2011 was a crazy frickin’ year. And with it came plenty of good, bad, and ugly. As we do every year, we lost a number of great rockers (...). While such loss is inevitable and, in some way, expected, it nonetheless never fails to hit hard. But 2011 was also full of many completely unexpected and occasionally mind-blowing events. Below is our list of the biggest stories of the year.
8. Evanescence release first album in five years, debut at No. 1
One of the best-selling hard-rock acts of the last decade, Evanescence had all but fallen off the map when they returned with this year’s self-titled album and the relevance of their gothy nu-metal-infused sound was very much in question. Consider that question definitively answered as the record debuted at No. 1 on the charts and the group hit the road to overwhelmingly sold-out shows–not to mention the fact that frontwoman Amy Lee was voted byRevolver readers to be the single Hottest Chick in Hard Rock. Amazing accomplishments all, for a band that clearly had been very much been missed.
