“Radio Free Europe” is a song by American alternative rock band R.E.M. “Radio Free Europe” was released as R.E.M.’s debut single on the short-lived independent record label Hib-Tone in 1981. The song features “what were to become the trademark unintelligible lyrics which have distinguished R.E.M.’s work ever since.”The single received critical acclaim, and its success earned the band a record deal with I.R.S. Records. R.E.M. re-recorded the song for its debut album Murmur (1983). The re-recording for I.R.S. became the group’s first charting single, peaking at number 78 on the Billboard charts.
