Hi, we're them.

/where's Tommy?

But can I attach a picture of Will Smith and his horrified children to that story? I mean, that's what we're using the Internet for today, am I right?

Someone find him - we're out on the road.

I love their "I touch myself" song.
 
2013-08-26 01:33:00 PM
I guess they need some controversy to get people to watch the 800 reruns they will have of it over the next month or so.

All I know is that I Can't Hardly Wait to see them at Riot Fest in Chicago.

The cast of that Keanu Reeves movie made a band?
 
2013-08-26 01:42:57 PM
"Unsatisfied"  a top song from the 80's.

2013-08-26 01:46:38 PM
Woo hoo, there are two actual original members in the band? Well I guess it's marginally better than most of the phony Motown and doo wop groups out there still touring featuring one original member in his 80's.

Listening to the stream, love how Paul blew my all time favorite Mats lyric....


The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest
And visit their graves on holidays at best
The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please
If it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them.

Why would you have a reunion on an event watched primarily by people who were not born when you broke up?
 
2013-08-26 01:59:45 PM
You know the author of that article is cool because he referred to them as "The 'Mats".  It also appears that the concert was a real sausage-fest since all the tweets were from guys.

What are VMAs? It used to mean Video Music Awards, but they don't have music videos anymore.

Variable Market Annuities?
Vagina Monologue Actresses?
Vegetarian Meat Analogues?

Granted, they are a really bad joke.

How's Westerberg's hand?  I remember he broke it rather severely...  What, three years back?  At the time there was some concerns he might not be able to play guitar again.

Count me as one of the people that doesn't get the love for "The Replacements".  I guess the lyrics are interesting, but the music itself blows.

I can see why it was 80s "music critic" fodder, though. It has all the right pretentiousness for that era.

Go back to jerking to Miley twerking and let the adults talk about music.

Who is pretentious, the man who says "pretentious" or the man who says "it's pretentious to say pretentious?" And how come it's "precious" but not "pretencious?" Or "pretious?"

Fark I'm drunk.

first time i heard them was in a record store with my future wife. the song was "unsatisfied". can't say i wasn't warned.

To be fair, they're the only two who are really around for a reunion. Chris Mars has retired from music entirely. Bob Stinson is dead, and Slim Dunlap was incapacitated by a stroke in 2012.

Who knew that the theme from Friends was 22 years old.

Did they ever record any other songs?

Yes, I was aware of that.  And all those guys were really background for the Paul and Tommy Show, at least when Bob's drinking really started catching up to him.    Paul had a decent solo stint.  Tommy had a great first album with Bash & Pop.   Not a whole lot of demand for the Chris Mars Project.

The Replacements are vastly overrated. They were actually known for the shiattiness of their live shows. But their fans are extremely loyal, for some reason.
 
2013-08-26 06:48:02 PM
It's like Yo La Tengo. One day you realize it's just easy listening AM GOLD for your generation.
