Tear Jerker / The Replacements

Go To

The 'Mats are known for their sense of humor, but they're no strangers to songs that can rip your heart out.

  • "Sixteen Blue." Sure it's a teen angst song, but it's one of the most relatable ones ever written.
  • "Answering Machine." Holy fuck... Just everything about it. The lyrics, and Paul Westerberg's vocals, which almost sound like he's in pain. This is probably the biggest Tear Jerker they've ever written.

  • "Here Comes A Regular," is pretty melancholy, lyrically and musically.
  • "Unsatisfied" will strike a chord with anyone who's not where they want to be in life.
