Meet The Replacements


Heard this song the other day, while watching the movie Adventureland. Boy did it bring back the feelings of utter helplessness and rage that come from being 20 years old, and figuring out for the first time in your life, just how limited you are.

So, so young. So, so stupid. Is it any wonder I love them?

So, so young. So, so stupid. Is it any wonder I love them?

Bastards of Young

God, what a mess, on the ladder of success
Where you take one step and miss the whole first rung
Dreams unfulfilled, graduate unskilled
It beats pickin cotton and waitin to be forgotten

We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
The daughters and the sons

Clean your baby womb, trash that baby boom
Elvis in the ground, there ain’t no beer tonight
Income tax deduction, what a hell of a function
It beats pickin cotton and waitin to be forgotten

We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
The daughters and the sons

Unwillingness to claim us, ya got no word to name us

The ones who love us best are the ones we’ll lay to rest
And visit their graves on holidays at best
The ones who love us least are the ones we’ll die to please
If its any consolation, I don’t begin to understand them

We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
The daughters and the sons

Young…take it, its yours…

Listen, watch, and remember here
