    Been to 5 of them (haven't been to Kosovo and Macedonia). I would rank them:
    1.Bosnia
    2.Serbia
    3.Croatia
    4.Slovenia
    5.Montenegro
    Itís nearly the complete other way around for me. Bosnia was my least favourite. Albania was surprisingly good too, well Tirana at least (bar the traffic and awful driving).

    So are there any members here who were part of Yugoslavia but now live in separate countries?

    Plenty of people... Yugoslavia ended in 2003 actually... and it was 6+1 countries, not 5.
    It was 6 (plus Kosovo) until 1992, wasnít it. Then it went down to 2 (plus Kosovo) before it disbanded into Serbia and Montenegro.

    This is something that worries me. I have family down there and they say it's starting to look similar the way it was before the last war.

    Haha yes, and since then Montenegro got independent and Kosovo did to some extent too. But yeah. It's getting only worse now tbh. Slovenia is probably the richest and with least problems, apart of Croatia border issue where hey fight over a bay.

    Bosnia is cooking up again, might become messy soon tbh.

    Not to be the one to preah about history cuz I'm shot at it, but this is such a basic info and UK (among other Western countries) had their fingers in the war, didn't think someone doesn't know this.

    Exactly

    I got over them after elementary school, and Chesterís death, however sad, didnít really change my opinion of their music

    All of my friends who made fun of me for being a Linkin Park fan are their biggest fans since Chester died.

    Some people discover someone when they die, others go and buy their albums which they may not have anymore, others were maybe casual fans who now want to celebrate the person's life by listening to their music....it's not weird at all.

    Just because you didn't have The Cranberries in your signature doesn't mean you didn't enjoy some of their music. It's not so black and white.
    I understand what you say and makes sense. But there are also some people who try it the most when the artist dies and suddenly starts acting like the biggest fan ever and I just cringe about it.
    That's fair. There were loads of those when Prince died.

    I just can't be like that. The Cranberries were part of my childhood and I genuinly liked them so thats why I've been listening to their music all day because I truly feel it and because I definately liked them way before when they were at their prime and she was well alive. But for example, when Prince died of course I felt sorry for him and everything but I did absolutely nothing for listening or revisiting not even one of his songs because I never really cared for his music and I wasn't gonna act like a hypocrite because he died.

    Some other people are not like that tho, they would suddenly act like they are fans only when the artist dies. I cringed all the time when it happened to Amy Winehouse, when she was alive many people made fun of her and many didn't even liked her at all, she died and the next day she was a genius and her music was amazing.

    I think itís fine to explore the discography after they died (as I said in previous post).

    Itís just lame when people act like they were Xís biggest fan just because theyíre dead now.

    I don't get that, really.
    Blackstar was the first Bowie album I ever checked, I listened to it two days before he died, and meant to explore more of his discography. Now, should I have not done it because he died?

    It's not that the music goes inside the grave along with the artist.
