** It's said that part of their appeal was arriving to a show and not knowing how functional the band would be. Occasionally they'd just randomly decide to do entire sets of covers too.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Bob Stinson had a ''very'' traumatic childhood, which goes a long way in explaining his behavior in adulthood.

Added DiffLines:

* LiveAlbum: ''The Shit Hits The Fans'', perhaps one of the most representative live albums ever - it consists of 20 covers and only 5 'Mats songs recorded to regular cassette tape, and by the end the band are so drunk they can barely play.

Defining AlternativeRock bands, before it was cool. The definitive lineup included Paul Westerberg (rhythm guitar, vocals), Tommy Stinson (bass), Bobby Stinson (lead guitar) and Chris Mars (drums). Bobby Stinson was replaced by Slim Dunlop in 1987 and Chris Mars by Steve Foley in 1990. Since the breakup of the band in 1991 Westerberg has released numerous solo records, and Tommy Stinson has played in a number of bands, most notably with [[Music/GunsNRoses Axl Rose and Friends]].

* TheAlcoholic: All the original members, particularly Bobby Stinson, who was fired for being ''too much of a drunk'', which is equal parts sad and impressive.

* InNameOnly: ''All Shook Down''. Westerberg was the only common denominator throughout the album, as the tracks featured maybe one or two other band members at random, and a whole slew of guest musicians and singers.
