In 1986 the Replacements were banned from Saturday Night Live after a fairly rousing (at times) if typically rough hewn appearance that involved some forgotten lyrics and an eff-bomb. Plus staggering. Here is a clip of those performances:
That's where we're riding by mmr421
The banning pretty much killed their careers, though Paul Westerberg got around it by going solo.
Tonight the band is on the Tonight Show.
1) Always thought The Replacements were kind of overrated.
2) Is Rockin’ Bob Stinson wearing the same pants in both appearances?
3) Nothing here is THAT bad. If you didn’t want The Replacements, why would you hire The Replacements?
How many Chicagoans claim to have been there when they broke up on stage? It was at a Taste of Chicago free concert – wasn’t there, but I know at least 10 people who said they were there. Half of those had to be lying.
Also, this is my favorite Replacements song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpWn_0MHYyk
Reminded me of this.
