      R.E.M. clearly really liked muscular industrial sans-serifs like Akzidenz, DIN, Futura Bold and Franklin. Rather unexpectedly, their 1999 single At My Most Beautiful uses at least two weights of a Johnston revival (presumably ITC Johnston which was released that year). It looks unlike anything else they ever published.At My Most Beautiful single
