The Replacements were an alternative rock band which formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1979. The band originally started off as a punk band who began to incorporate folk and power-pop influences in their sound to become one of the leaders of the early alt-folk set and one of the flagship bands of the American 80's post-punk scene, as well as a major influence on 90's indie rock. The band was wild and vivacious, featuring vocalist and guitarist Paul Westerberg and Chris Mars the drummer as well as the Stinson brothers Bob playing guitar and Tommy playing bass.
