[ # ] Everybody Hurts because R.E.M. split.
September 21st, 2011 under 80s, Michael Stipe


R.E.M. announced today that after 31 years they are splitting, and as most people read/heard the news they thought…wait they are still together?
The former band posted this message on their site:

“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.” R.E.M.

Back when I was a kid, I would’ve been curled up in a circle singing Shiny, Happy People with tears streaming down my face trying to put a smile on my face. But today, I could care less because they haven’t released a good album since Automatic for the People in 1992.
BTW is it wrong for me to wonder what Michael Stipe did to cause them to split?
