A song about the band The Replacements, anti-heroes of the Minneapolis scene. The song is quite funny, as "I Don't Wanna!" is howled just like Paul Westerberg in the Tim era, ca. 1985. "Tommy" is Tommy Stinson, teenage bassist of the band.

Because of this song, people used to think that They Might Be Giants were somehow connected to The Replacements; once, they were introduced on Late Night With David Letterman as the band's roadies. As far as I know, there is no real relation between the two bands, except for the fact that Chris Mars, the Mats' ex-drummer, released a solo album on Bar-None records, which used to release TMBG records.
