Seahawks Soundtrack: Star 69 by R.E.M.

This song just rocks, period.. But I'm also a huge R.E.M. fan since my days at Western. Buzz is they are back to rocking with their new record Accelerate.. Judge for yourself...

Hmm.. how can I tie this back to Seattle?

-4 songs from New Adventures in Hi-Fi were recorded in Seattle

-The song "Let Me In" was about Kurt Cobain

-Peter Buck lives in Seattle and was part owner of The Crocodile Cafe

and how do I connect it to football?

-The band was formed in Athens, GA and Buck, Bill Berry and Mike Mills are reportedly big Georgia Bulldogs backers...

Now back to ravaging midterms with my blue sharpie of doom!
