R.E.M. (1980-2011)

Thirty-one years is a good stretch for any band.  And while R.E.M. has had their slip-ups, their contribution to the underground, college and indie rock circuits are essential.  The band announced on their website today that R.E.M. is no more. 

"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.
