Calm down people, REM didn't write the song

So, I saw this Toyota Sequoia spot the other day which used REM's "Superman" as the soundtrack. Kept hoping it was for a hybrid Sequoia or something maybe green-friendly that would explain this stunning error in judgment—but no. What had happened? Had REM sold out? Had Michael Jackson bought the band's catalog? Turns out that when REM recorded the tune in 1986 for Lifes Rich Pageant, they were covering a song by some band called The Clique from 1969. I feel like I should've known they didn't write that song—then again, it's been quite a few decades since I had the time to obsessively study liner notes. Anyway ... phew!
