The band they started that night stayed together for thirty years and changed the shape of rock music. R.E.M. By MTV tells R.E.M.'s story in their own words, through three decades of performances and interviews. R.E.M. By MTV tells the story of a band that did it their own way, and changed how a generation of musicians after them did it too.
