REM – Auctioneer (Another Engine)

Yesterday, Corey and I watched several hours of the 7 Ages of Rock on VH1 Classic. It was really interesting, especially the “Alternative” segment which covered (among others) REM and Nirvana. I had no idea Michale Stipe and Kurt Cobain we such close friends, and how when listened to in the same mix there are actually some surprising similarities in their music. I’ve listened to Auctioneer a hundred times before, but if you can imagine it with a distorted guitar and screamy vocals it could be played right along side Nirvana.

30 days of MTV 10 of 30: It’s the End of The World as We Know it – REM

REM was one of my favorite bands in high school, but before that, I was in lover with the video. I liked to skateboard, I had that hair cut, I liked abandoned buildings and I would totally do dumb shit like this. This video is perfect.
