Replacements and Paul Westerberg are some of the best and most important rock artists to come out of the Midwest other than Husker Du. And no, the Smashing Pumpkins aren’t even on the same list……
Sweet god, anytime, anyone can get in a swipe at The Pumpkins I have to appreciate it.
I love Husker Du as well but The Replacements just seem amazingly current and relevant even to this day and that is why their impact seems greater to me.
Also if I am going to mention the two above bands I cannot leave out the Violent Femmes whom I have come to appreciate a little more each day.
