Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash was the first album by the Paul Westerberg-led band The Replacements and was released in 1981. The album includes the songs Something To Du, a tribute to fellow Minneapolis band, Husker Du and Johnny’s Gonna Die, a song that referenced Johnny Thunders increasing drug use. Over time this album has become regarded as a stone-cold classic.
8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 24th February 2016The Replacements began their career with this collection of high-energy rock ‘n’ roll influenced American punk songs in the vein of The Heartbreakers. Opener “Taking A Ride” is great and fairly typical of the album but it’s tracks like the seemingly more considered “Kick Your Door Down”, “Johnny’s Gonna Die” and “Shiftless When Idle” that stand out and show signs of what The Replacements would become. This is still a great album though, a key album in The Replacements back catalogue and essential for fans of the band or Paul Westerberg in general.
