R.E.M. - Stand

"Stand" featured on R.E.M.'s first major label record, 1988's Green. According to Michael Stipe it was inspired by the pop songs of 60's bands such as The Archies and The Monkees:  “They threw these super bubblegummy songs at me, and I said, ‘I’ll raise you and see you one.’ And I wrote the most inane lyrics that I could possibly write. Now, it was a very intentional thing to do that. I really like most of those songs, in fact.” And there we have it. "Stand" sounds as good today as it did when it was released and is a testament to a great group that is no more. By the way, the video is great too.
