Not Sorry For Me
Although I didn't like Chinese Democracy, at least Axl took a chance and created something different. Black Ice follows the same generic formulaic drivel AC/DC has pumped out for the last 20 odd years.
Not removing this until Oscar-rio gets a sex-change!!
If Zeppelin puts out a new album, I'd rather they did it with no singer than "not"-Plant. Like, an instrumental album with just Jimmy, John-Paul, and Jason. That might actually be pretty cool.
And if they tour, just let the crowd sing it all. We know the words.
I'd say the best comeback was Axl Rose with Chinese Democracy.
Maybe it's not what people consider GnR, but regardless, it's a fantastic rock record.
AC/DC was more of the same, too polished and clean. Better than anything since For Those About to Rock, but that's not saying a whole lot.
Death Magnetic was laughable. I'd rather they make another St. Anger than see them make a tired attempt at recapturing their glory days.
Not sure who else made a 'comeback.' Maybe Judas Priest with Nostradamus? I think Angel of Retribution came out in '01, maybe? Or was it '04? I can't be bothered to look it up. Either way, Nostradamus was decent, if not bloated.
The AC/DC album is just embarrassing. You throw out essentially the same album you released 20 years ago and sell it exclusively through Walmart. Lame!
The Guns n Roses album I can at least respect for creativity, although I don't particularly enjoy it.
The new album by The Cure was a pretty decent comeback record. Definately not as good as their other work, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Well, I hate what I've heard of the new Guns 'n Roses album, but I've always hated GnR, so I can't blame that on the comeback, If anything, I hate the new stuff slightly less, whereas Metallica's and AC/DC's new albums didn't change my opinion of the bands either way. Based on that, I guess I'd have to say GnR had the best comeback.
As for who needs to comeback, the first band to come to mind is the original Sabbath lineup.

Worst comeback this year: none. I didn't see any old band attempt and fail.
Best comeback: Metallica with Death Magnetic. It is the closest Metallica has come to their thrash sound in decades and is a pretty solid album. The worst thing about it is the production.
Who needs to come back: Ringo, Paul, Julian, and Dhani need to join up before it's too late.

Chinese democracy. The best rock album in the decade by far. Incredible songs and diversity. Awesome guitar work.
Now, about Metallica. I absolutely loved Death Magnetic. It is awesome to see them make such a thrilling comeback. I would give that album the comeback of the year award.
Also supernova, your avatar is awesome. Dave Grohl is complete win. I believe they should make Chuck Norris jokes about him. He seems to show up everywhere. As a matter of fact, I saw his name on the heavy metal Christmas album they are advertising on VH1 Classic. Can't wait to play the 3 new Foo Fighters songs on Rock band tuesday!
