  The Replacements - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Replacements (also known as The 'Mats or The Mats, from the insult of a detractor who joked the band's name was 'The Placemats', which the band then adopted) were a seminal alternative rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Replacements would release seven albums and one EP in the ten years from 1981 to 1990 before they broke up in 1991 and would tour with such people and bands as R.E.M. and Tom Petty.
While the move cost the Replacements appreciation of some hardcore fans, the album had a number of strong songs, mostly notably "Achin' to Be" and "I'll Be You", which topped Billboard's Modern Rock chart.

 The Replacements   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
You always had a sense of how much they'd started out hoping for and what they felt they had to settle for, and their outrage and disappointment was the electrical current that ran in between.
The Replacements should be remembered for more than that: they weren't just a sloppy good-time band who accidentally found ways to tap into our slurred, undefined feelings of inadequacy and insecurity.
The Replacements may have forgotten the flowers and the candy, figuratively speaking, but they always delivered on the goods that mattered, the words and music that cut close to the bone.

The Replacements were beer-bloated punk-poets direct from Minneapolis, whereas the Furs were deep, dark Brit popsters with an arty bent.
Funny and reckless, The Replacements were just a few years out of time; if they came wandering out of the mid-west today, they’d be offered a sitcom or a talk show in a heartbeat.
Part of The Replacements’ charm was their willingness to fall flat on their faces, as proved by the second disc’s mix of live curiosities and B-side catastrophes.

Replacements tune on the radio was left of the dial at Vanderbilt's 91 Rock back when I was in college.
Those were the days when "alternative" was not yet a word used to describe music and bands like the Replacements, R.E.M., Husker Du, the Violent Femmes and others were referred to as "college rock", "cutting edge", and some other terms I no longer recall.
When Rhodes College's station switched formats in the late '80s, I was reduced to waiting 'til the middle of the night to hear any new music on the radio for only a few hours a night.

 The Replacements and Paul Westerberg
Replacements indeed - these guys sound like just about any other 80s college rock band, but they're so faceless they don't compare easily to anyone.
I'm not sure anyone is going to get a lot out of tracking down every last record they did, but the better ones (including some of their post-breakup solo efforts) are good clean fun.
In a weird twist of fate, the Replacements originated in Minneapolis, also home to Prince and Hüsker Dü (must be something strange in the water).

A really pointless challenge -- they know fully well that, as replacements, they are replaceable, and their NFL careers will end with the strike or the season.
The Replacements does not ask the audience to ponder what it means to be an All-American guy, or where football fits into that identity.
And yet, The Replacements is bearable, mainly because of its utter lack of pretense, its focus on glory for regular guys, not prima donna pros.

 The Replacements
That they'll manage this, albeit with 'side-splitting' difficulty, is presumed (why break formula in the climax, of all places?); ergo, after they lost their first match, I wondered why a theatre should bother projecting the remaining reels at all.
It's not as if The Replacements is entertaining enough to supersede the foreordained, unless your idea of fun is not one but three prostitutions of Gaynor's "I Will Survive", or a nervous vomit sequence (if you saw Any Given Sunday, what you're now experiencing is called déjà vu).
We learn that football is for heroes, but cheerleading is a dishonourable trade--the head of the cheerleading squad must also ply in a more legitimate profession, as a barkeep in her deceased father's establishment, thus permitting moments in which she bonds with Falco by fondly carressing old photographs.

Naturally, despite squabbling and bickering, a roguish camaraderie develops through a mixture of racial infighting, harassment from the striking professionals, and a big bar brawl--after which they're all thrown in jail and perform the most improbable impromptu dance number ever committed to film.
The Replacements is a cracking, feel good movie, with a great soundtrack, which matches the film completely.

 TrouserPress.com :: Replacements
For a time the world's best rock'n'roll band — proof that those who missed the '60s could still build something great on the crass and hollow corpse of '70s music — Minneapolis' Replacements began as juvenile punks whose give-a-shit attitude masked the seeds of singer/guitarist/songwriter Paul Westerberg's self-destructive genius for injecting sensitivity into flat-out chaos.
A band album in name only, Westerberg used session players (including the three other Replacements) to craft lightweight songs that resemble the Replacements, but lack fire, content, imagination and tension.
While slight, the punchy "Pool and Dive" and the poppy "Message to the Boys" are suitably ragged and familiarly charming.

Led by singer-songwriter/guitarist Paul Westerberg, the proudly shambolic group tore through the 1980s with rowdy rock rave-ups (the punky "Kids Don't Follow," the defiant "Bastards of Young"), but always tempered their finest punk moments with surprisingly tender pop tunes.
