Friday, April 09, 2010

In 1980, R.E.M. played their first concert at a friend's birthday party. Thirty years later, they've become an iconic American alternative rock band with over 15 albums, containing almost 300 songs. In 2007, music blogger, Matthew Perpetua, decided to write a post about every single one of them. He joins the us to talk about some of his favorites.
