"Although the band will no longer be touring and recording together, Jet have committed to keeping their music, legacy, and brand alive through new licensing, publishing, merchandise, re-records, and releases. Jet manager and Tenth Street Entertainment's Vice President of Tour Marketing Brad Friess said, 'We will continue the Jet brand and their global footprint. Although the band will cease to exist as an entity, we will be working very closely with the members of Jet to keep the fans happy with new product in the market place.' "

What a fitting end to a truly store-brand pop commodity. Goodbye, Jet! Though you cease to exist as an entity, your brand, legacy, and global footprint will live on forever in our hearts. May your fans be forever entertained with new merchandise, licensing, and product.
