R.E.M.: Losing My Religion

(from Out Of Time)

Rock legends R.E.M. to Fox News: Lose our song

Like the R.E.M. song above? So does Fox News, which used it during their coverage of the Democratic National Convention last night. Michael Stipe and his bandmates are not amused, telling Fox News not to do that ever again. “We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there,” Stipe says. Which “puff adder” was Stipe referring to, this one or this one? (Side note: We’re assuming Roger Ailes is not sweating this, considering he’s reportedly negotiating a massive new contract at the moment.)

Michael Stipe has a Tumblr, in case you didn’t know that.

A wise man once said — ‘the skill in attending a party is knowing when it’s time to leave.’ We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we’re going to walk away from it. I hope our fans realize this wasn’t an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way. We have to thank all the people who helped us be R.E.M. for these 31 years; our deepest gratitude to those who allowed us to do this. It’s been amazing.
