The Exploding Hearts was a punk band that currently has a small cult following and great critical appeal. The band combined power-pop melodies with raw guitar angst. Unfortunately, in 2003, a van accident claimed the lives of three of the four band members, leaving Terry Six the only surviving member of the band.

In 2006, their record label, Dirtnap Records, released a posthumous album titled Shattered. The album lovingly contained every single unreleased Exploding Hearts track, including tracks from their unfinished album and all of the alternate unused takes for their first album, Guitar Romantic. Also included was a DVD containing the only known surviving footage of one of their live performances. It was incomplete and was of poor quality as it was recorded on a cheap digital camera.

Fans that had seen the band on tour have recounted seeing various audience members videotaping their performances. A few very low-quality audio recordings have surfaced, but nothing as far as visual representation goes has been submitted. There is an unresponsive YouTuber who claims to own several hours worth of recorded footage but has yet to actually prove it. Dirtnap records have put out searches time and time again, but it seems that these audience members just cannot be reached.
