Songs Called Songs: Radio Song

R.E.M.: Radio Song

This collaboration between R.E.M. and rapper KRS 1 appeared on R.E.M.'s 1991 mega-hit album Out of Time.

I always felt that it got a bad rap (no pun intended) from R.E.M. fans who just couldn't reconcile the fact that their favorite band was performing with a hip-hop artist. I never really had that problem myself and have always liked the track.

But... for those of you who prefer your R.E.M. rap free... here is bonus version of the song from the band's appearance on MTV Unplugged in 1991.
