traces the history of the Replacements through the eyes of rock critics and people who are nothing more than mega fans. Starting out as their origins as "Dogbreath," the documentary follows the band through their major label jump to their destruction, as told through the perspective of witnesses.
The Replacements (band) - Wikipedia
It's been documented a thousand times over at this point, but the origin story of the Replacements goes more or less like this: Bob Stinson, his little brother Tommy, and their new friend Chris Mars started a cover band called Dogbreath, and they found themselves a lead singer when a janitor named Paul Westerberg wandered by their rehearsal space and was invited by Mars, who already knew Westerberg, to swing by and jam with them. Eventually, Dogbreath changed their name to The Impediments and, not terribly long after that, to The Replacements. The rest, as they say, is history.

Dog Breath Variations | Details | AllMusic
With Chris Mars on drums and his 12-year-old brother, Tommy, on bass, he formed a group called Dogbreath in 1978. After Paul Westerberg joined the band on vocals and guitar, the group performed in place of a band that failed to show up at a concert. Shortly afterward, it changed its name to the Replacements. In 1981, it released its first album, a boisterous punk exercise called "Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash." Tommy Stinson is 49 today. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Stinson started learning to play bass at age 11, and he began playing and covering songs with his brother, Bob Stinson, and drummer Chris Mars in a band they called Dogbreath. After recruiting singer Paul Westerberg, Dogbreath changed their name to the Impediments and later, to the Replacements. After the Replacements broke up in 1991, Stinson formed the short-lived Bash & Pop, acting as lead vocalist, guitarist and frontman. In the mid-1990s he was the singer and bassist for the rock band Perfect, and eventually joined the hard rock band Guns N' Roses in 1998. Stinson has also recorded with the Old 97s, and in support of his latest two-song solo release.
