The Associated Press: The end of the world: R.E.M. calling it quits

:(

The alternative rock group that shook up the music world with its experimental, edgy sound and then earned multiplatinum success and a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced on its website Wednesday that it has "decided to call it a day as a band."

"A wise man once said — 'the skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave.' We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we're going to walk away from it," frontman Michael Stipe said in a statement on the website.

"I hope our fans realize this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way."

I heard this song the morning of my grandmother's funeral. Broke my heart.

Well at least they had the foresight to get out before they turned into a joke.
(hint: Mick Jagger, Steve Tyler)
