Bands that SHOULDN'T have come back

I hate slagging bands for making a comeback (after all, it shows they're trying and refusing to give themselves up for dead) but sometimes a comeback tarnishes the legacy a band has strived to achieve after years of hard work and great albums. 707 is a perfect example. A top-flight (no pun intended) AOR outfit from the early '80s with some definite starpower in Kevin Chalfant. Until... fast forward to 2000 and they release a CD that ruins their good standing among the melodic rock faithful. ANGEL is another example of a band that had a fall from grace. Their "In the Beginning" had the worst MHR album of 2000 slot sown up until 707 crash landed in my CD player last week. VAN HALEN single-albumly threw their perfect track record into the dumper with "3". (However, it wasn't a comeback per se.) Another example of a very misguided comeback was LOVERBOY's "VI" abomination. Having been a long-time fan of that band, I would have rather heard NOTHING from them than that sorry-ass waste of studio time. Does anyone else have more of rock's "most embarrassing comebacks"????
