PostSubject: The Replacements   Thu May 28, 2009 7:14 pm

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see no thread for the Replacements yet! And it is high time to correct that.

I've been really surprised lately to see all these bands covering them, I haven't met many people that are into them. The first time I ever heard them was in junior high- my favorite band was Third Eye Blind, and they had a song on the Can't Hardly Wait soundtrack, I remember riding my bike down to the Wherehouse Music store to buy it, haha. Anyway, the Replacements song of the same name was on the soundtrack, and that's how I was introduced to their music.

Anyone here ever get to see them?

sadly, no. they were done as a band long before i found them. Sad

My fave song by them is "Kids Don't Follow." It's the very epitome of punk rock, to me.

I started listening to them after I heard Left Of The Dial, they're quickly becoming a new favorite of mine.

"Left of the Dial" has one of the greatest lyrics in all of music:

"Playin' makeup, wearin' guitar"

i thought maybe someone on here would have been old enough and lucky enough to have seen them some time... sucks when a lot of your favorite bands broke up around the time you were born! hah.

I agree that Tim is the best album...would have loved to have seen them live. I have heard that they were either legendary or shambolic depending on how much they had drunk. Some of the bootlegs you can get like 'When the shit hits the Fans' demonstrate this pretty well. They are all worth hearing.

I think that Paul Westerberg is one of the best songwriters ever. I saw a show he did in London a few years ago which was brilliant and probably the nearest will ever get to the Mats!

i'm so obsessed with this band right now. i looove that guitar tone. those riffs are so good. and his lyrics and vocals are incredible too. can't decide if Tim or Pleased To Meet Me is better though

I was in my fave record shop in camden town on Tuesday before seeing Dinosaur Jr and saw Let it be for sale and brought it because of all the praise in this thread. Im two tracks in and loving it glad I bothered now.

No surprise Lucero cites them as one of their largest influences.

Good band but whenever I listen to their albums I'm disappointed with the consistency. Seems like there's filler on every disc. I can't complain much though as they do have some spectacular tunes.

I love these guys.

I've got a few albums by them, Tim, Pleased to Meet Me and Let It Be.

Let it Be is probably my favourite.

Paul Westerberg's "Stereo/Mono": brilliant. much tamer than The 'Mats ever were, but great in its own regard. also, Westerberg has hinted that "Mono" was really a reunion of sorts for The Replacements, which makes it even more awesome

Dude. Do yourself a favor and get "Let It Be". Listen to it until you're sick of it (which won't be for a while). Then get "Tim" and listen to that. Rinse and repeat.

I ordered "Tim" off of Ebay. I'm so stoked!
