This ain't no Rock Band 2 version. This 1987 video is just one of many reasons why we love the Replacements. Their 1985 major label contract required them to create videos to promote their albums. This, a band who came out with the sarcastic song "Seen Your Video" less than a year before. Snotty, irreverent, and stupid? Absolutely. This is rock & roll after all -- and the music industry we're talking about. So their videos were a big middle finger to it all. From MTV 2 and the album "Pleased to Meet Me", a late entry in their series of anti-establishment videos. (RIP Alex Chilton.) Curiously enough, this video is almost identical to one for another song from the album, "The Ledge," except it includes added cuts to make it longer. (MTV banned the video for The Ledge due to its lyrical references to suicide.)
