Replacements Banned from Saturday Night Live 1986
What a mess

The video above is from the January 18th, 1986 Saturday Night Live episode.
This is the first Replacements performance of the night. They had just finished up the Tim album and Sire got them a spot on SNL. The host that night was Harry Dean Stanton who had roles in Paris, Texas and Repo Man in the past few years and his performance in Pretty in Pink would be released in a few weeks. The Mats look pretty good in this perfomance, but legend has it they hit the champagne pretty hard before the next performance of the night.
That's where we're riding

Bob is wearing Paul's wife's jumpsuit and the other 3 are wearing each other's clothes. Paul is adlibbing the lyrics and Bob becomes a hero by hitting that last note perfectly at about the 3 minute mark. Just after that the ending segment is shown and you can see the hobbled together cast that SNL had that year (Jon Lovitz, Dennis Miller, Randy Quaid, Robert Downey, Jr, Joan Cusack, Anthony Michael Hall and Damnon Wayans) The Mats performance was definately the highlight of that season.
