I remember when MTV jumped fully on the REM bandwagon and they played Stand constantly.

Right, but that was when the original MTV used to play videos a lot more. 120 minutes was great, but I remember when MTV also had Alternative Nation too. I think that show started in the early 90's.


Eventually, MTV would overplay Losing My Religion and, everybody's favorite, Shiny Happy People.

Shiny Happy People video always gets me in a good mood. It's probably the worst REM song ever, but I love it at the same time.

Oh, I don't think it's their worst. It's a catchy little tune. It's better than Stand.

Always had a soft spot for Shiny Happy People. This video, however...

I find Stand to be slightly better.

Stand's video "elevated" the song to a new low.
At least Shiny Happy People had Kate Pierson and was fun to sing along while changing the lyrics to things like "Shiny happy people getting stabbed"

I remember reading but not from what source that R.E.M.'s Monster was one of the most sold back to a music store CD of the '90s and one that can be commonly found at second hand stores.

Yeah I remember seeing a ton of Monster CDs at Princeton Record Exchange in New Jersey. I think that is how I got my own copy. I used to have only the cassette in 1994.

I still have Monster on cassette, and nothing to play it with.

It's like everyone sent them to the remainder bins because of some bad mojo, because it isn't a bad record at all. It was their POP moment.

It does have got some great rock songs on it and I adore Strange Currencies.
Even I have aged better than Monster though.
