GREATEST HITS
Best Of R.E.M.   R.E.M. Singles Collection

Georgia's R.E.M. was one of the first popular alternative rock bands to hit the mainstream.  The band formed in 1980, playing their first gig at a friend's birthday party.  They chose the name for the band randomly from a dictionary.  The acronym has been said to refer to "rapid eye movement" (as in deep sleep).  After creating a following in Georgia, they began touring in the southeast.  They released their first single, "Radio Free Europe", in 1981.

R.E.M.'s first studio album was Murmur, released in 1983.  This album featured a version of "Radio Free Europe", which charted in the top 25 on the US rock charts.  The band had a number of US rock chart hits in the 80's, such as "Can't Get There from Here", "Fall on Me", and "Superman".   It was their 1987 release, Document, that netted the band a top 10 Billboard hit with "The One I Love".  Their 1988 release, Green, featured three songs that did very well:  "Orange Crush", "Stand", and "Pop Song 89".

R.E.M. continued their success well into the 1990's with songs like "Losing My Religion", "Shiny Happy People", "Drive", "Man on the Moon", "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?' and many more.  The band continued producing and touring well into the 2000's.  In 2011, R.E.M. announced they were splitting up.  The R.E.M.
