R.E.M., “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It”

Doesn’t this song feel good today?

The 1987 hit single from Document was temporarily banned from Clear Channel radio stations in the wake of 9/11, along with songs like “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam’s “Last Kiss,” but that seems pretty silly now. And while R.E.M. is no more, the world lives on.
