R.E.M. have left the building.
The band broke up today.
Here's a nice version of what may be my favourite R.E.M. song:
The correct pronunciation, if you happen to be wondering, is "Southern Central Rain".
I was born on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay
Maryland and Virginia have faded away
And I keep thinking tomorrow is coming today
So I am endlessly waiting...
—A. Duritz and Counting Crows, "St. Robinson and His Cadillac Dream"
