Thread to hate on REM

Postby SoGone » 27 Feb 2011, 16:55

God, what a shitty band. It's not so much that they're "boring" as that so much of their output is just a tuneless morass of "jangly guitars" and a plodding rhythm section with one of the most annoying singers this side of Bono (I'm talking about lyrics, or lack thereof, and the delivery that says absolutely nothing).


That said, "Fall On Me" is a corker, one of my favorite singles by anyone. Shame everything else they did was so bloody horrible.

My singing beats the shit out of Michael Stipe's. And my voice is shite.


I fuckin' hate Man On The Moon. I used to like the version they played with Springsteen during one of the Vote For Change concerts. Now I don't.
