So would I.



Dude, I don't know why you two would ignore Brian Johnson , he is down to earth and very friendly to his fans.

Agree with Manny - he doesn;t act like some prima donna singer (i.e. axl "diva" rose)

absolutely agree. I have no idea what qualifications Springsteen, Madonna or Streisand have to tell me who to vote for...

I don't think madonna has the qualifications to tell anyone how to do anything except...well, you get where I'm goin with this. Wink

i do but i doubt she would...

That tune with the line "this one goes out to the one I love" is the only song I really liked by them. I guess being around for that long counts surprised

I like all the R.E.M. albums up through "New Adventures In Hi-Fi". I saw them on a couple tours (Green & Out Of Time) and I've also met Michael and Peter on a couple different occasions. Great guys and great band.

Favorite albums are Chronic Town (EP) and Document.

P.S. I always liked them. Stipe was a little Gey though, LOL

first few R.E.M. LP's were good.
burn the rest.

As for Stipe, google some "gossip" sites, and you will see a recurring theme. I have zero respect for him.

That's a bit of an understatement. Like saying Eyesore buys a 'few' cds. Razz

Zombie thread! Back from the dead! Grrr! Arrrrgh!!

I may have to amend some of my earlier comments in this thread about R.E.M. -- since I've been scrounging for CDs at Goodwill so often this past year, I have acquired several of their CDs (Out of Time, Green, and the Eponymous odds-and-ends comp) and I've actually been enjoying them quite a bit, esp. Eponymous.

I guess I've sorta been a closet R.E.M. fan all these years. Who knew? (shrugs)

My comment about wanting to punch Michael Stipe still stands though. Dude is irritating. Very Happy

Michael Stipe openly said he hates that song once, too.

Fantastic band, man. Automatic for the People is one of my all-time favorites, but I dig all their albums.

Ugh. †

I hate REM. †There's a song or two here or there that I can tolerate but I mostly detest Stipe's whiny vocals. †

I think the only REM song I actually like is Radio Free Europe.

I f*cking love REM!

Yeah Shiny Happy People is annoying but one turd in a glittering catalogue ain't too bad

Most underrated album is Around the Sun which I absolutely love! Very Happy

I didn't even think they were still around.

I didn't either. I thought they were long retired and the world was a better place because of it. I remember reading an article once where Brian Johnson from AC/DC said that he went up to Michael Stipe to shake his hand and the guy just turned around and ignored him. What a prick. I guess he couldn't stand being in the presence of a real man. Brian laughed it off, and it gave me one more reason to hate their music.

That's actually pretty funny to me cause I knew a guy who was in a band in the '70s that had played with some fairly well known bands, one of which was Geordie and he said that they acted like total rock star assholes (despite not actually having any success) and were total jerks to his band.

I still don't give 2 squirts about REM. I never cared much for them or their pretentious fans back in the day. I was too metal and they were too sissy. Razz
