When you’re in a successful band, you’re going to be spending a lot of time with your bandmates…probably too much time. Most bands put on a facade that they’re the best of friends living out their dreams together, but in reality, it’s never as great as it seems. It’s not unusual for band members to be at one another’s throats for reasons that fans don’t even know. From drugs, alcohol, and creative control, to stealing your brother’s girlfriend, here are some famous bandmates that couldn’t stand each other.

It always seemed like Simon and Garfunkel were best pals, didn’t it?

Alternative rock group Kings of Leon are younger compared to other fueding musicians on our list, but they’ve had their fair share of issues amongst themselves. Although the band is comprised of three brothers and a cousin, the biggest internal problem that the band has is not because they’re related, but their frontman Caleb Followill’s relationship with alcohol. At one point, his drinking became so detrimental to the band that they had to cancel the rest of a 2011 tour. After Caleb considered leaving the band for good, he eventually started to keep his drinking to a minimum and the band came back with successful new albums in 2013 and 2016.
