In the span of their illustrious career, the band has sold more than 40 million records and has charted 13 Top 40 hits.
“The record just got under people's skin," says REO leader Kevin Cronin."… and I was saying that anyone who was in junior high through college in 1981, y'know, people couldn't help but have this record kind of drilled into 'em — whether they (laughed) liked it or not. And so for us to kind of look back fondly and with humor and think back (to) what we were going through, that seems surreal because I remember it so vividly as though it were last week, or something.”
