R.E.M. released Losing My Religion in 1991 and quickly became their biggest hit, largely due to this video and MTV/VH1 playing the crap out it! I don't know about you but growing up on the west coast I had no idea what "losing my religion" meant but according to wiki it's an from the south (the band is from Georgia) that means losing one's temper or civility. The more you know!
Michael Stipe recorded his vocal for this song in one take!
