This has to be devastating news for the 5 remaining members of their fan club.

In other breaking news Gun n' Roses just announced a new tour, and by Guns n' Roses I mean Axel and a bunch of musicians that aren't part of the original Guns n' Roses. Funny how that is acceptible now. You didn't see Paul McCartney touring around for the last 3 decades under the name The Beatles just to get more bodies in the seats. :x

REM was always one of those bands that I felt like I should like better... like there was something wrong with me, and I wasn't getting it. But then I'd try listening again, and I still wouldn't like them any more than I -sort of- did.
