The Replacements To Play 30 Rock For The First Time Since SNL Ban

The Replacements were banned from Saturday Night Live in 1986 after a drunken performance in which they forgot entire verses, mumbled lyrics, and cursed at the audience. In the band’s oral history All Over But The Shouting, Bob Stinson recalled that night: “Lorne Michaels put food and flower baskets in our [hotel] rooms, free bar tabs — we went to town. I think I’d have to say I abused it more than anybody. They swore no band from Warner Bros. would play on that show again unless we paid the tab on the $1,000 worth of supposed ‘damage’ we did.” Now, almost three decades after that performance, it seems as though the newly reunited band is returning to Rockefeller Plaza. In a teaser video posted on their YouTube channel, the band hints that they’ll be back on NBC on Tuesday, 9/9 as the musical guest for The Tonight Show. Watch the teaser and the performance that got them banned from Studio 8H below.
