We Love REM a Little Less Today

While reading about apostrophes, we came across this Peter Buck quote explaining the title of the band's 1986 album, "Lifes [sic] Rich Pageant":
"We all hate apostrophes. Michael insisted and I agreed that there's never been
a good rock album that's had an apostrophe in the title."

It's an odd thing to encounter the day after the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a nicely apostrophed collection of songs that still brightens our day when we play them.

In any case, please excuse us while we go weep softly in the corner...

Frank Zappa's album "'" (Apostrophe) is a pretty good rock album. And it had an apostrophe in it's title too.
