    It only means the whiny-voiced dude will try to launch some kind of solo artist ****. Thanks for the heads-up, though. I'll avoid television and radio for a while to escape it.

    Cue the "Wait, they were still together?" comments.

    ^^^^^^ Snark is so cute


    I love REM. They were the kings of alternative music before the term was invented. Look forward to reading the stuff that comes out now that they've called it quits.

    i thought their last album was automatic for the people and that everything else afterwards was done by a tribute/cover band.

    Their last album was Monster. Automatic for the People was a better album though.

    Sad about this but I kind of saw it coming, as they haven't done an album in over 15 years.

    Ah, obviously I haven't. :p Automatic for the People was the last time I was really into REM.

    I wish I could care more about a band that I loved so much as a teen, but I can't.

    They had a few good songs, but I've never understood the devotion to them. Frankly I don't even know that the break up merits any media coverage at all.
