Thank you R.E.M.!

After decades of top-notch music, band members call it quits

REM

It’s the end of the world as fans know it.

One suspected that when alternative-rock pioneers R.E.M. eventually called it quits they’d do it with civility and style, but this morning’s announcement that the band was through still caught fans off-guard. It started off with one short statement on the official website:

“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.
