Thursday Throwback : Can’t Hardly Wait by The Replacements

The Replacements: Can’t Hardly Wait

For many people of my age group the first thing associated with the title Can’t Hardly Wait is the ’98 cinematic master piece staring the hunky Breckin Meyer (a brief aside, if you have a few minutes scroll through the cast of that movie to see all the big actors who played bit parts, it’s nuts).  But the song by the notorious Minneapolis drunkards is on equal footing when it comes to its legendary status.  From the intro lick that has you bopping along from the begging to the end, it is no surprise (Aman-DUH) the influence songs like these had in the alternative/pop/rock scene moving forward.
