Earlier this morning Har Mar Superstar tweeted "Heading into my first Mats rehearsal! Wish me luck. #ThisIsInsane" which, as SPIN has since confirmed, is not a joke.

UPDATE: Actually it was and on me too. SPIN updated their post and Jessica Hopper admitted, "Well, that was a curious event. Sean was just punking me/you/us about joining the Replacements. Good thing no one wrote, like, news items about it."

We believed, obviously. Har Mar just tweeted, "I am, however, playing tambourine in Hüsker Dü this fall." Sean Tillman, you're a funny guy.

This is embarrassing and really makes me uninterested in this reunion. Guess Stinson's taste has been wrecked from all the time he's spent in GNR.

"Don't get too excited, guys. I could still totally fuck this up!"


Don't worry Sean, no one is too excited and most are praying you do fuck this up and it doesn't happen

No, Har Mar Superstar is not The Replacements’ new guitarist

Sean Tillmann, a.k.a. Har Mar Superstar, is not The Replacements’ new guitarist, despite reports to the contrary.

“Heading into my first Mats rehearsal! Wish me luck,” the flamboyant live performer and frequent practical joker wrote on Twitter today. He then tweeted a story from SPIN about him being the band’s new guitarist.

Reached for comment, a representative for the band said the news was untrue.

As of today, The Replacements have yet to announce the guitarist and drummer who will be accompanying Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson for their upcoming appearance at Riot Fest Chicago, Riot Fest Toronto, and Riot Fest Denver.

There will be a Husker Du reunion.
Bob and Grant are able to tolerate each other and reduce anger by softly stroking Greg's mustache. And having make up sex once a day.

I have listened to this 10 times in the past 2 days. I cannot get it out of my head. I missed his show Saturday in my city. I am bummed.

Music is subjective, there's not one way to do/hear something. Other people greatly enjoy the compression on the vocals and how that attributes to the feel.
