I was raised on the college-radio rock of R.E.M., so I’m going to assume that the actor Aaron Johnson was too, because he’s my age, and because, based on R.E.M.’s “Uberlin” video (directed by his wife, Sam Taylor-Wood), he clearly likes this band a lot, and is a really great but very secondhand-embarrassment inducing dancer. More power to him for his confidence? The song’s the European single from the band’s 15th (that’s right) very solid record, Collapse Into Now, which drops Tuesday. Watch it below:

Not the Cyndi Lauper song you’re probably thinking of.
