The connection between "Heathers" with this year's Coachella festival: 25 years ago today the dark teen cult classic "Heathers" came out featuring themes like high school violence and teen suicide set at the fictional Westerburg High in suburban Ohio. The name of the high school is actually a nod to Paul Westerberg, the influential singer/songwriter of the Minnesota punk band The Replacements. Heathers star Winona Ryder was a big fan of the band and later dated Dave Pirner of the faintly-similar sounding Soul Asylum (who just happened to also be from Minneapolis as well as label mates of The Replacements). Indeed, one of the cracks Christian Slater's character utters in Heathers is "color me impressed", which is a Replacements song from one of their earlier records, Hootenanny. Sample lyric is so very Heathers: "Everybody at your party, they don't look depressed / Everybody's dressing funny, color me impressed." After a long hiatus The Replacements have recently gotten back together (somewhat) and are on ...
Minneapolis, Minnesota is a place not often given its due as a center generating American culture. As a shining example of the fact that said culture is almost always produced and created away from the twin towers of Babel that are NY and LA, Minneapolis has given the world the likes of Bob Dylan, Prince, Bob Mould and Paul Westerberg among musicians. Those are just the headline music makers, mind can also talk about Tiny Tim and Dave Pirner and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Morris Day and The can think about the likes of the Coen Brothers among about trying Charles Schultz, creator of "Peanuts" on for size? Giants in their fields, all of them.

I'm now obsessed with figuring out the starting lineups of an Alt-Star basketball game. Think you go 80s vs. 90s. 80s starters are Paul Westerberg, Michael Stipe, Bob Mould, Robert Smith & Frank Black. 90s: Kim Gordon, Q-Tip, Ani DiFranco, J Mascis & Stephen Malkmus. I predict the 80s win in what might be the worst athletic competition of all time.

SPOILER ALERT.NO PUNCHLINE. (A Paul Westerberg/Burt Reynolds Story) 20 yrs ago tonight I played Saturday Night Live w/Paul Westerberg. As we were walking out to play the 2nd song (Can't Hardly Wait) he leans over and whispers to me "go ahead and yell something ridiculous or stupid during one of the breaks." There's 2 different, 2 bar rests in the song and that meant 2 big giant gaps of dead air on live, national television. So, the first one comes up.and...nothing. I totally chickened out. 2nd one comes up and out of nowhere I yelled "Burt Reynolds!" I don't know why I chose Burt but it just leapt out of me. If you were there it was loud as *** If you saw it on TV only the overhead mics picked it up and you couldn't really hear what was said unless you went back, turned up TV and listened again. Paul goes up to the mic to to start singing again and for a minute can't. He cracks up and it took him a second to get back on track. Go ahead and Google "Paul Westerberg Burt Reynolds."

hey guys Stop Motion Massacre has finished a new album and we'd love to see it get a vinyl release or at least some good tape distribution but we're all pretty out of the loop on labels and stuff. any advice on a label that would be interested in a winkingly arty transgressive pop punk band that sounds like a clown car stuffed with the 80's SST back catalog being driven off a cliff by an intoxicated Paul Westerberg would be mucho appreciated.

Do you guys think that Paul Westerberg, Tom Waits, Paul Simon, Bruce and others haven't done plenty for charity and the poor? They have. But they like to keep it on the DL. And most of these people would probably rather be put up in front of a firing squad than be photographed smiling next to the Cowboy From Texas/Who started a war in Iraq.
Let's get weird, New Braunfels: I'll be guest curating the house music in between sets and after the Go To Stereo show at The Phoenix this Friday night. I'm thinking some Dr. Dog, LCD Soundsystem, Built to Spill, Pavement, Lucius, Nilsson Schmilsson, and St. Vincent put down a new song this week - might have to get in to that. Even a Christmas song may be in order; heard a version of "A Way in a Manger" from the Replacement's Paul Westerberg that I think will pair nicely with the evening. You'll see. More later.
No need to justify it... Superstar Carwash is a terrific album. Had two songs produced by Paul Westerberg, right?
Pop Music / WEEKEND REVIEWS September 16, 1996|RICHARD CROMELIN | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES   At the El Rey Theatre on Saturday, Paul Westerberg took things a stirring step beyond the spirited exuberance that keyed his 1993 solo tour, his first after being unshackled from the tensions of the Replacements, the Minneapolis band he led through a colorfully unruly 20-year career.   His fans couldn’t have asked for much more than this show’s range of material and level of execution. Guitarists Westerberg and Tommy Keene, bassist Ken Justine and drummer Josh Freese delivered the leader’s songs with assuredness and ferocity, interlocking with thrilling finesse at high velocity at one moment, then providing the softest of shadings for a tender ballad at the next.   Their empathy and dynamism were enough to give a good name to professionalism. Their tightness wasn’t a matter of being clinical and accommodating. It was a reflection of their respect for the music and the audience.   That professionalism, as w ...

So and I rediscovered our love of the "Singles" soundtrack. Paul Westerberg, Alice In Chains and Mother Love Bone.
I know it's a lot to ask, but Paul Westerberg singing "September Gurls" while we cuddle. For Christmas. In MPLS. What?
OK, so I’m not a Monkees fan, but Daydream Believer is crazy good. Doubt it? Watch Paul Westerberg CRUSH IT.

My name is Paul Westerberg, and I am a drug addict.
"I think Keanu Reeves was amazing as Paul Westerberg in that movie about the Replacements." -me, failing to fit in, as usual
Black Eyed Susan by Westerberg, Paul from 14 Songs is on
OK, “Whose suicide are you on” is *the* consummate Paul Westerberg lyric—and he uses it twice on the same album.
Every morning, I look in my closet, and say "what would Paul Westerberg wear"? Today it is a gray/white polka-dot...
Check out this video demo of the Paul Westerberg Signature guitar by First Act.
I am officially the only person on the planet that would rather listen to Tommy Stinson's solo work (Bash & Pop, Perfect, alone) than Paul Westerbergs. Oh Tommy, you're my Paul McCartney. xxxooo.
Going to go backwards. Tonight was one of those nights where you realize why you have committed to something. I have had a lot of these nights with this Songwriter Night at Library Pub. It has allowed me to reconnect with longtime songwriters, returning songwriters, young songwriters and some that we do not call songwriters...but who are. I don't get paid for this-this is for fun for me...and I am not doing a praise me thing-just saying what I get out of this is what these artists give to me and the audience-and we have gotten a lot out of Mark and the Crew allowing us to do this night. Tonight was one that I will remember for a long time. Again...going to go backwards. Mark Patrick Weber played a set.a set that I personally connected to more than any set of music I have listened to all year. This is my second time seeing him since we reconnected...and I loved it the first time...but was just sold and enthralled tonight. Mark and me share a lot of favorite artists...and also a time in music. Marks's solo ...
Posted on February 17, 2011, Sex Sux (Amen) Blog   I just read “All Over But The Shouting” an Oral History on punk rock/rock n roll legends The Replacements.  The collection was edited and, in some parts, written by Jim Walsh.  I recommend it to anyone that has a certain fondness for The Replacements.   I have mixed feelings about their music, their story is pretty intriguing, I don’t feel like elaborating on about all that right now…   Instead, I’ve provided my readers with an anecdote from the book.  Legend has it The Replacements and the Young Fresh Fellows played a very intoxicated gig at the now-defunct downtown Providence hot-spot, The Living Room.  Silliness ensued.  RIP Bob Stinson.   Paul Westerberg (singer, guitarist, The Replacements): We mentioned ‘em last time and you didn’t write anything about them so you should mention the Young Fresh Fellows from Seattle.  If you think we’re good, then they’re the best band in the world.  They’re like the new NRBQ, only slop ...
Ever have that dream where you're supposed to interview a legendary and enigmatic Paul Westerberg-type figure and you get to the interview and it turns out to be David M. Krivda? Weird, right? So my subconscious says hello, Dave...
RIP Paul Westerberg. You had that song on the Singles soundtrack I always forwarded past.
And i could purge my soul perhaps for the imminent collapse O yeah, i'll tell you what we could do you be me for a while i'll be you -Paul Westerberg
Paul Westerberg's iconic song praising the man himself, Alex Chilton.

Back when John Rzeznik knew how to dress...This is my fav. Goo Goo Dolls Song, co-written by Paul Westerberg:
The Replacements never had a hit single. Career-wise they were masters of self-sabotage, but in the long decade between the fall of the Clash and the rise of Nirvana they were the heart and soul of the post punk/indie/ alternative/college rock movement that kept the faith alive. Their shows could be triumphs or disasters, often both in the same night. Their albums still sound terrific today. The band’s frayed DNA lives on in Green Day, Fall Out Boy, The Hold Steady and dozens of other beautiful losers. Leader Paul Westerberg’s songwriting was a blueprint for alt-country greats like Jeff Tweedy and Ryan Adams. Tom Waits recorded with them, Lucinda Williams sang about them, Peter Buck produced them, Tom Petty took them out as his opening act and swiped Westerberg’s line “a rebel without a clue.” The Replacements’ influence is everywhere.
500 words to go in a piece and Paul Westerberg keeps coming in the way of writing. Only great poet of the last 30 years.
I just got this album, and it's awesome. Glen sings Paul Westerberg, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, U2 and John...
Paul Westerberg severely injured his fretting hand in 2006 in an accident while trying to remove candle wax with a screwdriver leaving his ring finger on his left hand numb.
and perhaps Paul Westerberg's greatest gift was that he could title a track after Alex Chilton and . . . . ;-)
Never allow someone to be your priority while you're just their option of it out there, ~ Paul Westerberg
At some point during a random early morning I want my hair to resemble Paul Westerberg's
Also, Lou Reed was on the FRIENDS soundtrack (along with R.E.M. and Paul Westerberg)
Well that was a strange trip to the Safeway. 1st heard Paul Westerberg playing on the PA. (1 of 2)
Listening to Paul Westerberg this morning because Lou Reed.
All three members of the Paul Westerberg produced band The Silks contributed guest essays to
A long time since I played this. Paul Westerberg makes a Sunday afternoon appearance with Suicaine Gratification
"You can call us buffoons, or clowns or whatever. But when we wanted to, we were as good as anybody."- Paul Westerberg That is so true.
Just bought a Discman and a Paul Westerberg cd at the Goodwill.
I call it cuz Paul Westerberg shouts in my ear while I make it.
| I have my own language and it's high time I put a little of it out there. ~ Paul Westerberg
“Yeah, I guess part of me doesn’t mind being misconstrued now and then. I am a bit of a lone wolf where I don’t like them to know everything I’m thinking. If they have the wrong notion about something, then fine. Let ‘em go. The only thing that bugs me is when they equate softness or mellowness with quietness. To me, to be quiet or to say something in a hushed manner is sometimes one hundred times more powerful than shouting something that makes no sense" - Paul Westerberg
*** Paul Westerberg. He works a song and a guitar pretty good for a white guy.
Nothing quite like browsing the Family Planning section at Walgreens and hearing a Paul Westerberg song over the sound system.
I just found out about Ryan Adams and Paul Westerberg's feud. This is so conflicting...
I used to sing in the shower, Now? I make life decisions in there,ittle of it out there, ~ Paul Westerberg
With all the Say Anything conversation, I forgot to add, one of my favorite Replacements songs was a big part of the movie's sound track. The Replacements: Within Your Reach Crowe directed Say Anything. He also directed Singles. A great movie that captured the "Flannel" revolution started by Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. The official Music credit for the Singles movie soundtrack goes to...Mr Paul Westerberg. Yes, that Paul Westerberg. :) He wrote and contributed two songs: Dyslexic Heart and Waiting for Sombody. (I have both on my iphone and play them both all the time) It's a cute movie, starring a VERY young Kyra Sedgwick and Campbell Scott, who seemed to be an upcoming star, then fell off the map after this movie. Fun trivia fact, Matt Dillion played the lead of a really BAD grunge band,and there is a hilarious scene where he and his band members sit down together and read the review of their concert, and the review is horrible, HORRIBLE, they are ripped apart...and one of his band members is Eddie Vedder, ...

Any Replacements / Paul Westerberg fans out there ? As it's Friday night it's time for a musical rave ! I was in Minneapolis recently and listened to a lot of alternative radio. The Replacements are local legends there and have recently done some reunion gigs, but for some reason I'd missed out on them over the years. At any rate, I loved what I heard and have now caught up. I've also got a stack of CDs by their lead singer, Paul Westerberg, who has gone on to a successful solo career. This is some of the best music I've heard in my life - it's anthemic like the best bits of Oasis but with intelligent lyrics and genuine anger and compassion. Discovering great stuff, whether new music or catching up on things I've missed, is so refreshing - keeps you on your toes ! That's why I love going to the US so much.
Brody's album of the day: Paul Westerberg - 14 songs. Great solo debut from The Replacements front man!
Paul Westerberg-World Class Fad: via Great version of my favorite track from his solo debut!
by Jim Kennedy   The Replacements are playing a show at 2:00pm on Good Friday in the Student Center’s Duke Ellington Ballroom. Admission is $1.00.   I have only recently begun listening to The Mats, buying a copy of Let It Be on cassette at Record Revolution several weeks earlier. The roughly 2.5 square inch picture of the band sitting on a roof is about the only photo I’ve ever seen of them.   When I arrive at HSC, the doors for the show have not yet been opened and there is no line. I head into a nearby men’s room and see someone standing at one of the sinks in front of the mirror. He appears a bit dazed and I decide that he must be here for the show also—or perhaps is even associated with the band in some way.   Then my mind starts to race. I begin to think that he might be Paul Westerberg. I have a pretty good idea what Bob, Tommy, and Chris look like from the cassette, but Paul isn’t facing the camera in the cover shot. The only other photo of him I can remember seeing was a small one i ...
Photo: Paul Westerberg is an odd duck. He penned the lyrics for songs like “Takin’ A Ride” and “Something to...
when you witness the dark, all you need is a spark. Paul Westerberg. Runaway Wind. Thanks dude.
Mike Doughty, Jeff Buckley or Paul Westerberg? If you can't pick one at least rank them.
