List Rules Vote for your favorite R.E.M. songs, not just singles and hits.

Here's a list of songs by Georgia-based alternative rock band R.E.M. ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. The band, fronted by singer Michael Stipe and guitarist Peter Buck, paved the way for the alternative rock movement of the '80s and '90s, influencing a diverse list of bands ranging from Hootie & the Blowfish to Nirvana.

R.E.M.'s singles and best-known album tracks are included here, because the real fans know there are other awesome songs to vote on other than the radio hits. Music videos and audio clips are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. If one of your favorite REM songs is missing from this poll, add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.This list contains songs like "Losing My Religion," "Fall on Me," and "Everybody Hurts."

If the order of this list doesn't match your favorites, then fight the system by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you prefer.
