Default Battery cells?

Do batteries for R/C cars last forever? Since they're rechargeable...I've seen a picture of dead batteries..What's up with that?

And BTW, if your batteries ever do wind up looking like that, get rid of them immediately they can release extremely toxic chemicals/fumes when they reach that point.
