R.E.M. were on the Today Show on Friday to perform ‘Bad Day’, ‘Today’, and ‘Losing my Religion’, and the group also were profiled by the NBC morning show.

But don’t call it their ‘greatest hits’. “Greatest hits is a little bit of a cheesy term. Best of sounds a little better,” frontman Michael Stipe said. Video at MSN has since been removed.
