Editorial Reviews

"It is the best band biography of all time. Want to know why? First, underdog stories are an American tradition going back to our underdog story in the Revolutionary War. Second, the Replacements is the most commercially underrated band in the last 30 years...Third, there are more incredible moments here (that are too crazy to be fictional accounts) than any band ever, period."-PopMatters
