'''R.E.M.''' was<!--"was" not "were", see WP:ENGVAR--> an American [[Rock music|rock]] band from [[Athens, Georgia]], formed in 1980 by singer [[Michael Stipe]], guitarist [[Peter Buck]], bassist [[Mike Mills]] and drummer [[Bill Berry]]. One of the first popular [[alternative rock]] bands, R.E.M. gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, [[Arpeggio|arpeggiated]] guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. R.E.M. released its first single, "[[Radio Free Europe (song)|Radio Free Europe]]", in 1981 on the [[independent record label]] [[Hib-Tone]]. The single was followed by the ''[[Chronic Town]]'' [[Extended play|EP]] in 1982, the band's first release on [[I.R.S. Records]]. In 1983, the group released its critically acclaimed debut album, ''[[Murmur (album)|Murmur]]'', and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of [[campus radio|college radio]]. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single "[[The One I Love (R.E.M. song)|The One I Love]]". The group signed to [[Warner Bros. Records]] in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.

By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed by subsequent acts such as [[Nirvana (band)|Nirvana]] and [[Pavement (band)|Pavement]] as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, ''[[Out of Time (album)|Out of Time]]'' (1991) and ''[[Automatic for the People]]'' (1992), which veered from the band's established sound. R.E.M.'s 1994 release, ''[[Monster (R.E.M. album)|Monster]]'', was a return to a more rock-oriented sound. The band began its first tour in six years to support the album; the tour was marred by medical emergencies suffered by three band members. In 1996, R.E.M. re-signed with Warner Bros. for a reported US$80&nbsp;million, at the time the most expensive recording contract in history. The following year, Bill Berry left the band, while Buck, Mills, and Stipe continued the group as a trio. Through some changes in musical style, the band continued its career into the next decade with mixed critical and commercial success. In 2007, the band was inducted into the [[Rock and Roll Hall of Fame]]. R.E.M. disbanded in September 2011, announcing the split on its website.<ref name="REM breakup">{{cite web | author=Hilton, Robin | date = September 21, 2011 | title=R.E.M.
