I’m Back! (The Replacements – “Bastards of Young”)

My internet was temporarily out so there is a noticeable gap between this post and my last one, but now I’m back online!

I’d quickly like to pay respect to some Minneapolis legends, The Replacements. This video, for the song “Bastards of Young” from the album Tim, is a perfect statement that the band was unwilling to change to please anyone. Instead of making a commercially marketable video, the band made a video that consisted of one black and white, continuous shot of a speaker in a room where someone listens (and reacts) to the song. The Replacements never gained big commercial success, but they have been hugely influential to alternative rock musicians and members of the Minneapolis music scene. Please enjoy this classic video.
