Like many of you from my generation, I wasn't hip to R.E.M. until they had their big hit crossover song, "Losing My Religion"….

We've basically covered most of these the bands before - the only one I didn't know about is called The Baseball Project.
Apparently this is a sort of "supergroup". Members includes Peter Buck (REM), Scott McCaughey (singer of The Young Fresh Fellows* and The Minus 5**), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Linda Pitmon (Hazel Motes), and sometime Mike Mills (REM).
If you were wondering, yes, these guys are hardcore baseball fans.
* who got a mention in a They Might Be Giants' song.
** who got a mention in a Momus song… technically they commissioned Momus to write a song about them.
