some REM songs are just total nonsense. not even in the fun way like Billy Corgan, just a bunch of words that make no sense

@cosmicevan thank you for being brave enough to say this. so sick of rem and their goofy nonsense songs

@picklemaddierix hey REM Guy...that girl you keep referring to as a “sad tomato” isn’t gonna fuck you!

@cosmicevan @picklemaddierix and I don't know who kenneth is but would you even know the frequency if he told you?

@taweret @cosmicevan Stipe is pretty open about this being his writing style, of thinking of words basically as notes and just jumbling up evocative short phrases to suit the song. It's part of why some early record reviews of Nevermind called it "loud R.E.M."

A small, private instance where a few cryptids may roam and play. Seek, but fear. The whole thing was birthed in a Denny's in 2016.
