Well if you consider that today's industry is all about touring bands Motley Crue certainly deserves to be in the discussion. Van Halen w/ Roth seems to be doing well also

I think you could call Iron Maiden a reunion of sort, since Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith left the band for about 8 and 10 years each.

Anthrax's reunion of the classic lineup was good as far as touring and live cd/dvd, but they didn't release any new material (unfortunately).

Their most famous line-ups fell apart, and got back together years later, but the bands continued.

If you wanted to include line-up reunions, though, you'd have to include Black Sabbath for the Heaven and Hell reunion.

I knew someone would get "technical" on me with those bands but that's fine. But I still consider them Reunions.... Sue me.

Take That (group which spawned Robbie Williams) returned and it has been very successful in the UK. The Spice Girls reunion is too soon to tell really.

The Pixies: They were great on their reunion tour, and I even seem to recall them basically saying they haven't been able to record anything new they feel fit enough to put on an album.

Pink Floyd: Even if it was just for Live 8, it was still fucking awesome.

Van Halen: I haven't heard anything negative about the current reunion tour.

The Eagles: I seem to recall they were on a hiatus through the 80s, but got back together in the 90s.

Rage Against the Machine: Probably too early to tell on this one, but its looking like its a similar case to The Pixies; great success from touring, but no plans for an album.
