Grandmothers Are Accidentally Tagging Themselves as Grandmaster Flash on Facebook

Your grandma is many things. Loving, caring, a baking whiz. But “pioneering hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash” is probably not one of those things.

Which is strange, because non-tech-savvy grandmothers across the world have accidentally been tagging themselves as Flash in Facebook wall posts for a while now. It’s a weird trend, but it’s pretty wonderful.

R.E.M., Grandmaster Flash Inducted Into Rock Hall

R.E.M. reunited when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Monday night.

Former drummer Bill Berry – who left the group in 1997 – joined Michael Stipe, Mike Mills and Peter Buck for a special performance of some of the band’s early songs at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

Singer Stipe said his late grandmother once told him that she felt that the acronym R.E.M. stood for ” ‘remember every moment’ – and this is a moment I shall never forget,” the Associated Press reports.
