He is best known as the lead singer of the alternative rock band R.E.M. since their formation (1980) through their breakup (2011). Stipes met Peter Buck, Bill Berry and Mike Mills while enrolled at the University of Georgia and the four formed the alternative rock band R.E.M. Known for their unique sound, the alternative rock group played their first concert in Athens, Georgia and released their debut album, Murmur, in 1983 on IRS Records. The group then moved to Warner Brothers and released 1991's Out of Time, which included the hit single Losing My Religion.
