PLEASED TO APPRECIATE ME: As this site's top Replacements booster, it is my sworn duty to point you to this list from Rolling Stone of the 25 Most Underappreciated Artists, where you will find The Mats prominently placing behind the criminally under appreciated Tom Waits (I guess we are talking mainstream appreciation, since at his show last summer I didn't see an empty seat and I could have scalped my seats easily for 3x face value).

And if you would stop to appreciate a little Tom Waits, you would realize that "Jersey Girl" is his and not Bruce Springsteen's song, a fact that you will find on this list of Songs You Didn't Know Were Covers. (I was surprised about "Bette Davis Eyes" and "Mickey.")
