While looking for the previous link to the lyrics for Welcome To The Occupation, I found out that Murmurs.com started a peer-to-peer network called "give it away" for trading live and unreleased R.E.M. tracks. Evidently they've run this by the band, since the band also gave them permission to include B-Sides from the various singles as well as fan-club-only releases.

This is SO cool! I've already gotten an incredible version of Cuyahoga from the 2001 MTV Unplugged 2 concert. How beautiful.

By the way, the service name comes from this song.
