After more than three decades of making music, REM has called it a day. The announcement came via the band’s website and was later updated to include comments from all the band members.

(Insert witty reference to “End of the World As We Know It” here. My personal favorite is, “It’s time they had some time alone.”)

Twitter lit up with the news. At one point, REM, Michael Stipe, and “calls it quits” were all trending.

REM has had some very memorable songs over the years. Automatic For The People was a great album. What are your favorites?
