R.E.M.'s debut album, "Murmur," was released just six months prior -- on April 11, 1983 (following the brilliant "Chronic Town" EP the previous year). Rolling Stone Magazine subsequently named "Murmur" the best album of 1983 -- a rare honor for a debut. Recall that New Order released "Power, Corruption & Lies, Violent Femmes released their debut album, and ZZ Top released "Eliminator." Heh heh. Oh, and Madonna released, um, "Madonna."

And how could I forget? Michael Jackson released that album with, like 48 number-one hits.
