R.E.M. disbanded. Such utter travesty. 
2011 is, indeed, the year of much heartache.

And to think, a couple of posts ago, it was all about wanting the 90s back.

In my defence, I meant 90's-and-backwards-from-there! I admit, R.E.M. had been quite consistent throughout those 3 decades, but the fact that it ends here further solidifies the argument. Not only is there a severe dearth of great new bands coming up, the old ones are dying out at a faster pace! Damn, I'm a wreck... :(

I really dont think there will ever be another time in history where there will be great bands like that again. I cant really explain why I think that, it's just this feeling I get. Like 90's-and-backwards-from-there was as good as it cud possibly get, like that was the absolute peak and now we're in this trough.

There's this friend I have and every single time she listens to a Beatles song, she says "How come there's no more bands like them?"

Every single time! And nobody's got an answer to that sadly. :(

I really dont get why they had to go and break up like that. R.E.M. were so, so good together!
