  7. Why would you want to get back at people who left of their own accord?

    I say good riddance! Revenge is a normal human emotion, but, I always remember what an old friend (now deceased) once told me in a pub: "Good living is the best revenge."

    Start another band and be that much better than them. I know it sounds easy, but, left unchecked vengeance can consume you.

    Just my $.02

    go to their show...

    bring kazoos

  9. You could just ignore them, get some other musicians to replace them, practice your @$$e$ off, and crush them where it counts, with your musical ability. Then, when they have seen your new band, and realize what a tragic mistake they've made, you can act kindly toward them as if they did you a favor by leaving so your new band could become better than it could have been with them. It will drive them nuts.

    Or you could just ignore them.

    Fire ants work pretty well.

    Of course he didn't actually do anything worthy of revenge, but some senseless violence is always good for a laugh.
  11. Anything involving plungers. I'm all in favor of plungers.

    Rock on

    The best revenge is to live a good life.

  14. Deliver a pet sized casket to his house, with a note in side "This may come in handy soon."

    Don't actually do that... :D

    Go to their gig and sob uncontrollably. Works every time.

    The best part is, you might get a free hanky.

    Entirely true. I once went through a bad band break up because of a singer. The guitar players went with him and so me and the bass player (I played drums at the time) formed a band with some other friends. They only lasted a few months before they broke up while the band my friend and I started lasted much longer and played more shows than they did.

    You could always take an English class, and send them an articulate, concise letter with properly spelled words expressing your disdain for them. They will feel SO stupid.
