Do Nirvana And The Strokes Owe It To R.E.M.?

Former R.E.M. bassist Mike Millis had the following to say when asked by Scotland On Sunday if R.E.M.'s impact has been as widespread as the Beatles:

"We maybe changed US rock, over time – we forced mainstream radio stations to open their playlists to music they might otherwise not have been interested in playing. Would Nirvana and the Strokes have happened without us? You can never know."

For this week's Your Say Hump Day, we want to know if you think he's right. Would Nirvana have been nearly as popular without R.E.M. paving the way?
