12 Inch Singles - The Replacements "Kiss Me On The Bus"

This is the next in the series of 12 inch singles that I bought on that fateful day in 1986. The Replacements are one of those underground bands that never reached massive popularity yet had a powerful influence on other people forming their own bands and putting out original music. "Kiss Me On The Bus" was on the album Tim that came out in 1985 and was the bands first major label release. It also was the last time that the original lineup was to record together as guitarist Bob Stinson was kicked out of the band shortly after the albums release. It received critical acclaim but had at best moderate commercial success. The band officially broke up in 1991 but by then Chris Mars and Bob Stinson were already out of the band.

Okay as a bonus here's the song from the same album that still gets played on college radio today, "Left Of The Dial." Just for fun because it's a great song.
