R.E.M have broken up after 30 year of making music their way. What a bum out, but at least we have their killer catalog to help us get through this loss!
The band posted a note on its website to alert fans of its new status as "broken up." It read as follows: "To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening."
What a touching and classy statement. R.E.M. will be missed, but their legacy lives on in their music.
What is your favorite R.E.M. song?
