    I don't know if they're on a Mt. Rushmore, but I wonder if BB will be looked at more strongly as time goes on.

    Totally agree. I even liked Jane's Addiction more.

    The Replacements are incredible. Every rock/pop/punk music fan should take the time to discover their stuff.

    If you have to explain why your band is genius instead of people going holy **** this is genius. Then no, they are not genius. Tom Morillo on guitar is genius. When the Levy breaks by Zepplin is Genius.

    What's funny is that the video for 'Alex Chilton' is the exact same video for 'The Ledge' which might be my favorite Replacement tune. The band HATED music videos, thought they were stupid, had zero interest in doing them. The label forced their hand and told them they will make a music video for 'The Ledge'. So Westerberg and the others said **** it, we're going to make the most boring music video in history, a collection of shots of the guys sitting on old furniture in a warehouse eating burgers. That was the video they got. MTV wouldn't play it because they thought 'The Ledge' encouraged teen suicide, which shows how stupid MTV was because the point of the song was the exact opposite. But I love how that video is essentially a big middle finger from the band to the whole thing.

    didn’t say I was genius

    Also you know you are wrong about bands when the argument you make is about the other guy’s spelling

    Probably my favorite -- if not something close to the consensus -- live band of all time. Very few bands can claim the live versions of their greatest albums and their best-known stuff is better than their studio versions, but they can do it.

    Next to "wanton excess" in the dictionary is a picture of Physical Graffiti.

    That being said, it has some good songs.

    "Houses of the Holy" is easily the best of them.

    I wish it had just been on Houses of the Holy. That is easily my favorite LZ album (even before IV, yes), and it would have been even better with that song.

    I find it odd they held it off because it did not "fit" -- a bouncy, rumbling, and fun song like that is exactly what you want on Houses of the Holy.
