"Wolves, Lower" is an R.E.M. song, written by Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe, which featured as the opening track to their 1982 debut EP Chronic Town (although listed as track four on the original Chronic Town sleeve). Peter Buck mentions the song to have been "head and shoulders above the rest" of the band's earlier material.[1] Its earliest recorded performance was on November 6, 1981 at Friday's, Greensboro, NC.[2]
