    The Replacements

    With news of The Replacements reuniting (mostly) for a tour and possibly new studio work, yes, I'm a little giddy. One of the all-time great American bands. So if you're a Mats fan, let's hear it from you. Tons of great songs obviously, but 'The Ledge' was always a special one for me.

    This guys playing in Crapids and is having trouble selling out the five seasons center. It's been a barrage of this song and commercials for almost two weeks.

    Re: The Replacements

    I rarely cross-pollinate anything with my extremely-sporadic blogging, but this is a rare situation that seems to warrant shameless self-promo.

    31 Days, 31 Videos: Day 24: "I'll Be You."

    That's only the "videoocracy" side of it ... this thread screams for things like favorite Mats songs/albums, etc. I'm "all-in" with that, too.

    Re: The Replacements

    This is a good tune from "Pleased to Meet Me".

    Re: The Replacements

    And of course, you can't forget this one.

    The Replacements - Bastards Of Young (Video) - YouTube

    I can remember sitting at Welch Avenue Station one night during my freshman year when this song came on. This was right about the time "Pleased to Meet Me" was on heavy rotation on the campus radio station, and I remember thinking "Hey, this must be The Replacements".

    And the video for this song? Freakin' genius.

    Re: The Replacements

    Here's another favorite, and as an Iowa fan, it seems pretty relevant as well.

    Re: The Replacements

    They are playing in Chicago and I will definitely be there screaming for Talent Show. Most underrated band in Rock 'n Roll in my opinion. Not just because I am from Minny either.

    Am I the only one who was expecting this thread to be about Shane Falco?

    Re: The Replacements

    My “Essential Replacements Primer” (with a few links). (I admit this is a little light on early-era.)


    Color Me Impressed


    I Will Dare
    Satisfied
    Seen Your Video
    Sixteen Blue
    Answering Maching


    Hold My Life
    Kiss Me on the Bus
    Waitress in the Sky
    Bastards of Young
    Left of the Dial
    Here Comes a Regular


    I.O.U.
    Alex Chilton
    I Don’t Know
    The Ledge
    Valentine
    Skyway
    Can’t Hardly Wait


    Talent Show
    I’ll Be You
    Achin’ to Be


    Someone Take the Wheel
    When it Began


    Special mention: “Never Mind,” if for no other reason, includes a quintessential Westerberg lyric:
    “I’m not ready as I’ll ever be”
