The Replacements on the 1989 International Rock Awards

We apologize, here they are, The Replacements

Ok, your wondering what the heck were the International Rock Awards? Well, the award show lasted 3 years (1989 - 1992) and "honored excellence in popular music". I just remember being shocked to see the Replacements open an award show. What a perfect song for them to play in that situation.

Some Highlights for me:

Paul saying "What the hell are we doing here" just before starting the song

The tongue stuck out at the camera at about the :53 mark

The network bleeps out "the pills we took" around the 1:20 mark, Paul rolls his eyes...

"It's too late to take pills" instead of "It's too late to turn back" to end the song.
