Breaking news: Chumbawamba has broken up. If you actually know who that is, congratulations; you’re one of the few left. The British one-hit-wonder, famous for the song “Tubthumping” (“I get knocked down/but I get up again/you’re never gonna keep me down”), announced on its website that Chumbawamba is no more. This warrants the question: which other long-forgotten ’90s bands are still clinging to their 15 minutes of fame by continuing to play today? We found 10 more bands that have “stood the test of time.”

1. Gin Blossoms

Gin Blossoms hasn’t released an album since 2010, and its original drummer left earlier this year, but it’s continuing to tour this summer.

2. Sugar Ray

Lead singer Mark McGrath has had a number of side projects over the years, like appearing on “Celebrity Apprentice” and hosting “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” but Sugar Ray has remained intact and is on tour this summer.
