We are young despite the years

When R.E.M. was younger, Michael Stipe had a 'fro, Peter Buck shook and jived convincingly, Mike Mills looked like a middle-schooler, and Bill Berry probably had no idea how to spell "aneurysm." And they were the coolest band in the world to me. Here they are, in their national television debut on October 6, 1983, playing "Radio Free Europe":
