Fans of The Replacements were disappointed last weekend, when the band’s reunion tour abruptly ended. It was a refreshing reminder of their unpredictability and volatility, which got us thinking about one of the band’s seminal moments: their 1986 appearance on Saturday Night Live. Always known for being loud, sloppy, and not particularly sober, they lived up to that reputation on the SNL stage. They were drunk, forgot the verses to their songs, and guitarist Bob Stinson dropped an f-bomb. They were then promptly banned from the show — although Paul Westerberg did return as a solo artist in 1993. Of course, the Replacements were not the only musical guest to be kicked off the SNL stage. With that in mind, let’s look at six other artists who were banned from Saturday Night Live.
