1. The now-defunct rock band. The ultra-pretentious douchebag
Jeff Martin announced the end of The Tea Party at a press conference in 2005, allowing his two band-mates of 30 years (Stuart Chatwood, Jeff Burrows) to find out that their careers had been terminated by getting phone calls from journalists.

1. The Tea Party's only #1 hit was Heaven Coming Down.
2. I hope Billy Talent stick to their guns instead of being a Tea Party.
