Goin' After Some Lipstick Chicks
A live performance from The Replacements at the International Rock Awards (no year listed, but I'm guessing '89 or '90, around the time Don't Tell A Soul was released). The song and performance rock, of course, but I especially treasure two extra-textual moments: Paul Westerberg's deadpan cry of "What the hell are we doing here?" as the song begins; the way he sticks his tongue out as the camera gives him a close-up (very John Lennon).
