After 31 years and 15 albums, R.E.M. announced on its website this morning that the show's over. Here's the post

"To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening."

Thanks for all the fabulousness, guys. We'll miss you. How about a comeback tour in 2012? Think about it.
