R.E.M split after 31 years together

They have been performing together for more than three decades but today R.E.M announced they have slit up.
The group, made up of Mike Mills, Peter Buck and Michael Stipe, posted a statement on their website earlier today.
It read: ‘To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished.

Some of my faves:

...not intending to be inappropriate, I stumbled upon this ...and I gotta say, I like it...

"You must always be intoxicated. That sums it all up: it's the only question. In order not to feel the horrible burden of Time which breaks your back and bends you down to earth, you must be unremittingly intoxicated. But on what? Wine, poetry, virtue, as you please. But never be sober." -Baudelaire

"Crazy Little Thing Called Rehab" (Mash-up: Amy Winehouse vs. Queen)

...and...more fresh beats...

Ray Charles vs Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP - "Ray No Speak Americano" - Mashup

The Beatles vs Queens of the Stone Age - "Eleanor Is In My Head"

...if you've made it this far...then...

"Maiden Goes To Bollywood" (Iron Maiden vs Dhoom 2)

Metallica vs Panjabi MC - "Metallica Goes To Punjab"

Some more Lajkó Félix before I move on... because you really should hear this guy. If his CDs were cheap and available I would probably just stick them in random mailboxes... but don't let that effect your listening experience. :)

This is my most recent favorite.

Lajkó Félix - Este

Unfortunately this next song is cut off at the very end due to an error in the upload, but it's still worth listening to.

Lajkó Félix - Miracle
