The occasion was the band’s induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York. The band – who had already appeared together in an interview for CBS Mornings – were introduced by Jason Isbell, who performed a cover of “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)”.

Variety reports, Stipe then delivered a speech: “We are four people who very early on decided that we would own our own masters and we would split our royalties and songwriting credits equally — we were all for one and one for all… Some of those song we recorded turned out good, sometimes great, and what a ride it has been. It truly means the world to us to be recognized for that, and tonight we thank you for this honour.”

The band then performed “Losing My Religion“.
