The Replacements Interview on MTV, 1989

A couple of months ago, MTV released an un-aired interview with The Replacements on their YouTube stream, and it’s worth all eight minutes of your time. At this point in their career (1989), the band was in shambles, trying to keep the music coming while knowing full well that their time with major label Sire was on the brink of ending (they also might be highly inebriated, which is par for the course with The Replacements). As a result, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson talk with a frankness that is hard to come by in our time of publicists and political correctness.
