Today Is R.E.M.’s 30th Anniversary

rem385 06 Today Is R.E.M.s 30th Anniversary

It’s impossible for me to pick my favorite [lastfm]R.E.M.[/lastfm] song (“So. Central Rain,”   “You Are the Everything,”  “Untitled” … ooh what about “Me in Honey”…  “Pop Song 89”, “Fall on Me”…) but I picked this video because it’s the REM song that makes me most nostalgic.  And aren’t anniversaries all about nostalgia?

Some pics and memories from the band after the jump.

…can you believe it?  It was actually 30 years ago on this day that the band got together.  There’s a really cool look back at their favorite cities (yes the Bay Area is included!) here, and a good photo retrospective here.  Thanks to their official site for the goods.
