Michael Stipe has pretty much confirmed that you shouldn't expect R.E.M. to reunite.
In a recent radio interview, the band's frontman said anyone holding out for the band to get back together is just experiencing "wishful thinking."
"We will never reunite," Stipe said. "We decided when we split up that that would just be really tacky and probably money-grabbing, which might be the impetus for a lot of bands to get back together."
Stipe added, "We don’t really need that, and I’m really happy that we just have the legacy of the 32 years of work that we have."
