REM: It's the End of the World

If you're reading this, congrats! The world is still here and the Mayans were totally wrong about the end times—or at least the apocalyptic conspiracy nuts that misinterpreted their calendar rollover were. So, to celebrate that Hunhau, ruler of the Mayan underworld, has not risen from Mitnal to end all of creation, please enjoy REM's breakout hit from way back in 1987.


Fun fact: you won't ever hear this song again on a Clear Channel station, having been added to the radio company's list of post-9/11 inappropriate titles.
