R.E.M. News Roundup

This is what happens when Jordan uploads gifs. 😦

Heh. How many of y’all saw this coming even after R.E.M. retired? There’s always something going on with them, I tell you.

First up, REMHQ is having a song of the week every week until the Nov. 15th release of Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982-2011. They’re showcasing the official video along with all the cover vids they can find. SO SEND AMJ YOUR R.E.M. COVERS! Seriously, we can pass ’em along and you may just see your trombone cover of “Orange Crush” appear.

THE LAST R.E.M. SINGLE. You can hear it here at RollingStone.com.

I’ve said it many times before, the band is done making new music together but there’s no way they’re done fighting the good fight. Point illustrated with this tribute to Occupy Wall Street. Here’s a printout and a poster of the words to “Welcome to the Occupation.” They’ve even made a lyric video so you can spread the word to all your friends online. Viva la occupy!
