I just watched the new documentary about The Replacements called "Color Me Obsessed" at the Trylon Microcinema a few days ago, and it was pretty awesome. It wasn't a typical documentary, though--there was no footage at all of The Replacements, and no interviews with any of them. Almost no pictures, even. I'm not sure what the story is behind that, but I'm guessing it was done on a small budget. Definitely worth seeing, though, and it made me track down some of their music. They also talked about this 1986 performance on Saturday Night Live--I guess the band tore the hell out of their dressing room and got banned for life from SNL.
