Hey guys, anyone have any idea what songs are likely to be in the set list? I've only been listening to The Replacements for a short while and honestly haven't listened to much outside of Tim or Let It Be but I wanna be familiar with as many songs in the set as possible! Any thoughts?
A big chunk of what they've been playing has been off "Pleased To Meet Me" so if you listen to that plus Tim and LIB, you'll be pretty caught up.
Hope you guys have fun at the shows.

Pretty funny that two biggest pop stars of today are covering Mats. First Lorde with Swinging Party and now Miley Cyrus (with Laura Jane Grace and Joan Jett) with:
Great cover (kind of cover Joan Jetts cover), but makes me pretty annoyed that they dont give any credit to the Mats. Kind of story of that bands life. Theyre always close to making, but then something goes wrong (not saying that the band would skyrocket to fame only because of that, but just mention them goddamnit!). For example Paul Westerberg was doing Saturday Night Live in the 90s and just started to play the "industry game". Charlton Heston (who was the guesthost) completely blacked out and forgets Pauls name in the end. And then credits started rolling and he couldnt say it anymore, because the mics gone off. Oh well...
