Hell Week: Burning Hell

R.E.M.: Burning Hell


This is my first ever attempt at blogging in any of its forms… so I thought I’d start with a song from my favorite band, R.E.M.

“Burning Hell” is taken from the B-sides and rarities album, Dead Letter Office. This isn’t one of R.E.M.’s stronger efforts. Nor is it truly a good representation of the typical R.E.M. sound (Michael Stipe’s falsetto screams seem especially out of place). This is what happens when a jangle pop group takes a tongue-in-cheek attempt at recording a metal-fueled, riff-filled rocker.
