After 31 years of making fantastic music together, the four members of REM are calling it quits as of today.


The band wrote in a statement issued on its website about the breakup: "To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening."

Wow they have been together that long?


Personally I never liked them, they are up there with U2 for me...They had some good songs but they just werent my type.

I always thought they broke up years ago. Well 31 yrs is a long time in music and they did really well

Mr. Stipe got a golden ticket to the Elenin-YU55-UARS bunker and the rest didn't?

This is the WEIRDEST coincidence...I had to call my wife.
Just THIS morning, we were watching a documentary about the musical influence of Athens, GA.
there were some clips of very early REM performances.
I/we both wondered..."are they still together?"

Then I see the headline...about an hour after that.

So the answer is....retired?
