Sure, if you think streaming equals download.

I was there. It was pretty cool. I liked the Sham 69 cover.

But the Stooges and Dinosaur Jr were more exciting, IMHO.

dstrick44: Who?


Some band that could have been good but music critics and young and old hipsters say they are great so they are bad because they are getting shoved down our throats and that really is the worst.  Plus, one time in the 80's I went to see them without knowing anything about them and they showed up so drunk that they couldnt even play their songs.  The nerve of those guys to do something they were known for to me in my city when I was a young rebellious youth.

I saw them on the Don't Tell A Soul tour.

They were all drunk as shiat, especially Westerberg, but still played very well, and did one encore, which started with a manic cover of "Wipeout".

I was 12 years old when I first heard about the residents, and just HAD to check out one of their albums. Living in sandusky Ohio, there weren't a lot of stores selling obscure music at the time. I couldn't believe my eyes when i found a cassette in the discount bin. I nabbed that in an instant and took it hope and anticipated all the wierdness I had read about... Imagine my disappointment when I heard something that sounded less like Frank Zappa possessed by Salvador Dali and more like a sub-par REM. Yep, I had in my hands a copy of "All Shook Down" by the REPLACEMENTS, not the RESIDENTS...

Not saying Replacements suck,(i've grown fond of them in the years since) but they do IF you're expecting something like Eskimo or The Commercial Album...

No, seriously. I'm from the 80's and I never heard of them before yesterday or so.
Did they ever have a song on the radio?

Ok
After googling this band and watching "classic" clips on youtube, I can say now that these guys are not now and never were my "thing".
Moving on now. Carry on

These are their best-known singles (with accompanying promo videos [usually shown in light-to-medium rotation, if shown at all, on MTV's 120 minutes program:])

 Bastards of Young
 Alex Chilton
 Merry-Go-Round
 I'll Be You
 The Ledge
 When It Began

/not, imo, their best songs (Here Comes A Regular;Can't Hardly Wait), but their most well-known (if known at all.)
