    The end of the road has come for R.E.M., the band that led the indie-rock revolution and helped transform the modern music landscape.

    The Georgia-bred group announced its breakup with an online posting today. 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, the statement read. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished.To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening." The split comes three decades after Michael Stipe,

    I saw them back in '83 before they were big. Been around a long time and to be honest, I thought they had split a while ago.

    My first thought when I read the news was, "Oh. They were together?" LOL. I have my finger on the pulse of pop culture.

    damn.

    Murmur is my all time favorite album. Timeless.

    So long to the godfathers of college rock.

    I have to say that I never really liked Michael Stipe or Natalie Merchant until I heard them together.

    They had been over the hill for a bit now, still they had quite the run in the 80's and early-mid 90's.

    Yeah, I like & own all of their 80's albums. They got a little too "pop" after they got big in the early 90's.

    They had a pretty good tune several years ago. I don't pay much attention to new music, but I try to keep up with the old great bands.
