"Bang and Blame" is a song by the American alternative rock group R.E.M. It was released as the second single from the album Monster in 1995. It is the last R.E.M. song to reach the top 40 in Billboard's Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 19, and also their last number one on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
When the album version of the song finishes, an untitled instrumental featuring vibrato effects on the guitar amp and amplified slap bass techniques follows, lasting approximately thirty seconds from fade in to fade out.
The song was the most successful single by the band in America since 1991's "Shiny Happy People". Since "Bang and Blame", the band have not had a single that matched its success.
