Music Groups - R.E.M

R.E.M. was an American rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. Notable songs include, Losing My Religion, Everybody Hurts, The One I Love, and It's the End of the World as We Know It(And I Feel Fine)

3 JP, #1. Yeah, the fact that they were still a band was kind of a surprise to me,too. However; how often do you hear of bands who actually publicly admit they've broken up despite the members having long since gone to greener pastures? [e.g. Despite the fact that Darius Rucker seems to have carved out a rather successful new niche for himself as a country performer for the last few years , Hootie and the Blowfish is still supposed to be an intact alternate rock band]. #2. Most of R.E.M., I can take or leave, some of it I dislike but I do admit liking 'Happy, Shiny People' [the one song the band itself HATES]- mainly because of the contribution of the B-52's Kate Pierson. Believe me, that song has gotten me through more than one rough work day! #3- Getting into the Hall of Fame seems to be a crap shoot so I can't get too worked up about it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:45 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 In case you haven't heard REM decided to call it quits. #1. I didn't know they were still around really. #2 So? I never like them in the first place, not one lyric or note. #3 I'm still bitter that somehow they made it into the Hall of Fame. Now, I know there is quite a bit of politics that come into play here, but damn, there are greater bands who haven't been nominated in yet. #4 -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 26, 2011, 5:57 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
