R.E.M. have just released R.E.M. by MTV, a six-DVD box set which traces the band's history from college rock heroes to mainstream stadium act. It's R.E.M. all the way from 1980 to their split in 2011. TEN has four copies to win. Enter here.

R.E.M. and MTV came of age together. The band released their first single in July 1981, just weeks before the network premiered its first music video. From that point on, MTV documented everything about R.E.M. - their music, their stories, and ultimately their decision to disband in 2011. 

R.E.M. By MTV includes the acclaimed feature-length documentary by filmmaker Alexander Young. It draws exclusively from archival events and traces the history of R.E.M. and MTV in real time.

We have four DVD copies to win. To be in with a chance, send the answer to this question to tencompetitions@rte.ie with `R.E.M.' marked in the subject line:
