|R.E.M mark the point when post-punk turned into alternative rock.||Throughout the '80s, they released records every year and toured constantly, along the way, they inspired countless bands, from the legions of jangle pop groups in the mid-80s to scores of alternative pop groups in the '90s. By the late '80s, the group's fan
base had grown large enough to guarantee strong sales. R.E.M slowly became one of the world's most popular bands. After an exhaustive international tour supporting 1988's Green, the band retired from touring for six years and retreated into the studio to
produce their most popular records, Out of Time and Automatic for the People. 2004s Around The Sun became another multi million seller and proved that the band are as popular as ever. With over two decades of music there is no shortage of back catalogue
