Yahoo! Music News (http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/stopthepresses/392260/rem-breakup-has-fans-crying-not-dreaming/).

It was inevitable, but it didn't seem like it would happen after the release of two critically acclaimed and fan appreciated albums. Then again, you kinda want to go out while you're at the top of your game and I guess this was the right time.

Oh, thank you for all the music, the years and the memories...

I REMember when they said they'd do a concert on Dec. 31, 1999 and then retire. So this news is just about 12 years old, I guess. :p I always liked their style. :mmm...curds:

More surprising to me is the news that they were still together after all these years.
