* StraightGay / BiTheWay - Michael Stipe.
*** He's referred to himself as an "equal opportunity lech" -- [[BiTheWay he's slept with both men and women.]]
*** He manages to fit in the occasional hint- "7 Chinese Bros." features the line "This mellow, sweet short haired boy, woman offers 'pull up a seat'"

** He's fairly hesitant about declaring his sexuality one way or another, preferring to call himself "queer".
*** He also refers to himself as an "equal opportunity lech" -- [[BiTheWay he's slept with both men and women.]]
*** He manages to fit in the occasional hint- "7 Chinese Bros." features the line "Smell of sweet short haired boy".
*** http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9dJcjUdAYs His mannerisms in this video, coupled with his make-up leave the viewer in no doubt.

'''R.E.M.''' were an AlternativeRock band from Athens, Georgia, the same city from where Music/TheB52s came a few years before. They were formed in 1980 when University of Georgia student Michael Stipe (vocals) met Peter Buck (guitar), who worked at a record store. They discovered that they shared a similar taste for "art-punk" acts such as Music/{{Television}}, Music/PattiSmith, and the Music/VelvetUnderground. This led them to form a band with two other U of G students, Mike Mills (bass) and Bill Berry (drums). Under the name R.E.M., the band recorded the only single ever released on Hib-Tone Records, "Radio Free Europe" b/w "Sitting Still." "Radio Free Europe's" combination of punk attitude and folk-rock guitars influenced by PowerPop (especially Music/BigStar) pretty much invented a specific form of AlternativeRock named JanglePop, and led to them being picked up by I.R.S. Records.
