The grunge punks are still going strong
Brittany Spanos

Chances are high that your favorite band’s favorite band is the Replacements. In the 1980s, the Minneapolis outfit put college rock on the map, influencing Gen X’s alternative taste and flavor for a style of punk more bitingly subversive than the last generation’s. Their influence has been so lasting and legendary that even Lorde has covered one of their songs, both as an early demo predating her success and as a current concert staple. Beyond the sheer rawness and originality of their tunes, the Replacements were known for putting on wild, raucous live shows and even got themselves banned from SNL just when they were on the brink of going mainstream. After reuniting for the first time in 22 years at Riot Fest in 2013, the Replacements have been steadily reclaiming their rep.
