I listen to The Replacements way more than Nirvana. I also like The Pixies more, too, but then so did Cobain (though Frank Black did not return the affection).

I know it doesn’t matter what I think or the comparison, but it’s just something I was thinking of, something to talk about.

All those bands and all grunge are, for me, a different wave that came through, maybe Indie? But I’d not include the much more commercial sounding bands that mimicked these bands like Goo Goo Dolls, for instance.

My personal favorite of that wave of music is The Replacements.

No disrespect to Nirvana, it’s just way less often I listen to them. He did say he was kind of trying to sound like The Pixies.

I guess grunge is really more of a reaction to the group of bands from the late 80s. The Replacement’s were done by 89.

well I'd take Nirvana over any of them by infinity miles but there is far better music on IMP than the biggest hits of this century in mainstream music. I'm thinking of doing a radio show of the very best to display that fact soon.

Pixies took a while for me to get on with, maybe soemday I'll love Nirvanna but its a quick station change right now ...pleased to meet me was the last great replacements album but 14 Songs by westerberg is an absolute gem....early REM scratches that same itch for me, up thru lifes rich paegent...

All Shook down has a few great songs, I think. The title track, Merry Go Round, One Wink at a Time, Nobody, Sadly Beautiful…

Sadly Beautiful is one of the world’s most feeling songs

“Nobody” is super clever

I guess it’s not really a Replacements album, but I love those songs

I love Don't tell a soul. I have all there LPs.

Gotta remember grunge is a word. None of the so called grunge bands ever call themselves that. I would never turn off a Nirvana song.

The Smiths, The Cure, REM, The Pixies and The Replacements were all making "college rock" in the 80's. There were others too. I love all of those bands, particularly The Smiths, The Cure and The Replacements.

I was in my late teens when grunge hit. It was largely created by guys who are about ten years older than me. My guess is that they grew up on 70's rock mixed with the college rock of the 80's. They probably feel about 80's metal like I feel about late 90's post-grunge music...I just don't get it. I'm not really sure if it was the backlash against hair metal that made it popular. Suddenly, there were interesting bands on the radio with good lyrics. If "Nevermind," "Siamese Dream," and "Ten" hadn't been such great records, the genre wouldn't have been so huge. Some hair metal was fun and really good. Some of it was terrible. I'm grateful for the alternative rock movement of the early 90's, because there's no way I would have fit in a hair metal band. I just don't have the personality for it. The alternative movement kind of made it acceptable for anyone to be in a band. You didn't have to wear spandex and have really long hair. That kind of stuck, even after the genre faded.

“Feeling like a hundred bucks”

What a line. So funny. He’s frequently so funny and clever and economical. That line alone puts him ahead of most of us.

You know there's a whole indie world outside of the indie bands you guys are talking about which are mostly on subsidiaries of major labels?

It's all Indie music for me ~~ These days ---

Although my college folk/rock was way different in 1969/70.....Indies took a lot of time to find .

Weekends at the head-shop/record store --- AM radio had those 40 hits >> We had to discover the INDIES

“Well, you got your father’s eyes
and you got your father’s nose
But you got my soul
Sadly beautiful “


“Ain’t much to look at so
Close your eyes here we go
Playing in the talent show”


“The bridegroom
Drags you 'cross that room
Said I do
But honey you were just a kid
Your eyes said, "I did"
Still in love with nobody
Nobody, nobody
And I won't tell nobody

Take a look
On your wedding night
In your wedding book
See what name I signed
Hey
Love nobody
Nobody, nobody

Yeah, you're still in love with nobody
Nobody, nobody
And I used to be nobody
Nobody, nobody
Not anymore”

“ Throwin' us trunks
As we're starting to drown
We're all shook down
All shook down”

Even the “all shook down” as opposed to”I’m all shook up” is funny

I’m kind of jealous because I don’t think I ever wrote a line as good as

“Feelin’ like a hundred bucks”

Westerberg has written some great lyrics. That band seems like it would have been a little nuts for me. I don't think I would have handled the chaos. My favorite Westerberg lyrics are probably from "Valentine." He has so many great songs though.

Anyone else says”feelin’ like a million bucks!”

Westerberg: “Feelin’ like a hundred bucks!”

Shouted with such joy. Changing it to 100 does a lot of work.

Yeah, I’ve heard they were a total mess
