I don't go in for pop, what does R.E.M stand for?

That was all that came to mind for me too, I know pop groups frequently have perculiar names,but surely not 'Rapid eye movement'. drumdrumdrumdrum

That's is an audiology term -  Real Ear Measurement

They clearly make an awful racket.

I apologize....It is in the joke section.....Perhaps it is a little young for our more senior and intellectual members...


R.E.M were a huge band in the 80's and 90's ( Not really my type of music ) and they brought out a definitive album containing a particular song that, wherever you were that year, almost anywhere in the western world, it seemed to be all that you heard and was instantly recognizable the second it started. The biggest dramatic line in the song was....'That's me in the corner'... thumb

...'That's me in the corner'...


Was the question of what he was doing in the corner ever answered?
If he is still in the corner it might be a kind gesture to take him a cup of tea and a ham sandwich.

I still don't know what R.E.M. means as applied to a pop group.
