Is MySpace Back?

To quote one of my favorite zombie movies, Return of the Living Dead, "They're back from the dead and ready to party!"

For a while now I have heard about an impending overhaul of MySpace, but when I finally logged into my old account recently, all I found was a ghost town, with all the same pictures and songs I had left there a few years ago. It was a fun trip down memory lane, but I did not see much of a difference.

Well, the changes are coming and I have to say, it looks pretty cool. Could MySpace rise from the grave? Based on this teaser video, I would not bet against them. Especially since sentiment about Facebook seems to be waning with a lot of people. (Young people, Mark Cuban, people who admin fan pages, etc.)

Take a look at this new preview video. What do you think?
Do you even remember your old password?
