SPOTIFY HAS REVEALED that its most viral track in the run up to 21 December, which had been earmarked by some as the ‘end of the world’ was, fittingly, REM’s It’s the End of the World As We Know It.

The song was shared and listened to the most between 17 and 23 December across Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Spotify itself.

The service, which launched in Ireland in November, offers millions of tracks to users for free.
