Yes, as of September 21, 2011, R.E.M. has called it quits by announcing on their website that they were “calling it a day as a band.” Bummed? Even though they were a Grammy award winning band, and many liked them, I can honestly say that I never really got into them at all. So, no, I’m not bummed. Sure, I did like a couple of their songs, but they were their more popular songs that got played on the radio all the time. I am figuring that I will still hear these same songs on the radio though.

What are your thoughts or feelings about the breakup?
