Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Stand" by R.E.M.

Looking back, I wasn't really all that much of an R.E.M. fan at first.  When I was in 8th grade and everybody was going nuts for "Losing My Religion," I just found it irritating.  The other big track off of Out of Time, "Shiny Happy People," also didn't sit well with me.  Then Automatic for the People came out a year later, and to be honest I don't believe I particularly enjoyed "Drive," "Everybody Hurts," or "Man on the Moon" either.

But at some point I was introduced to stuff they sang before I started paying attention to music, and their 1988 album Green finally sold me on the band about 5 or 6 years after the fact.
