REM T Shirts

The REM T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway.

REM are the American rock band from Athens, Georgia, that was formed in 1980 by Michael Stipe (vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass) and Bill Berry (drums).

They gained instant attention due to the wonderfully haunting vocals of Stipe and the arpeggiated guitar style of Buck. Their early years saw them constantly touring and releasing records, and the late 1980s saw a more mainstream success, with the single The One I Love launching them to further fame and popularity.

The albums Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992) witnessed their sound to differ slightly from previous releases before the rock-orientated sound returned in 1994 with Monster. To support the album they toured for the first time in 6 years but medical emergencies to three band members marred the tour.

In 1996 they made recording history with the most expensive contract when they resigned with Warner Bros. They soon became a trio after Berry left the band the following year.

In 2007 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but disbanded in September in 2011 following an announcement on their website.

Their cult status and timeless classics feel no older with each and every listen, and although they conform to many genres, their sound is that unique that some say they should have their own genre altogether. Whether it be the classic Losing My Religion, the bouncing Shiny Happy People, or the haunting "everybody's favourite sad song" Everybody Hurts, REM will always hold their own position at the top of the music world.
