Hmm... I think there's quite some bands that screwed up badly in the eighties and made a great comeback in the half/late 90's. So I'm not sure ifI agree with you.

Imploded... Coldplay, Counting Crows, Black Mountain, Belle & Sebastian

I thought imploding meant that they kept on going after they reached their peak

No, implode means a band breaks up/stops at the peak of their creativity. The Beatles are an ok example of this.

I think Refused is the ultimate example though, which is why there was a documentary made solely about the break-up and final tour.

Ah, in that case, Nick Drake.
Not voluntarily, obviously.

Even though they are kind of reforming for tours, System of a Down were literally topping the charts when they broke up.
