The Replacements initially formed in 1979, and were wild and quickly became notorious for their drunken, chaotic gigs. After they built up a sizable local following, the Minneapolis label Twin/Tone signed them. Critics and fellow musicians were quick to praise the band, and they developed a large underground following.

The Replacements are considered a pioneer of alternative rock. Unlike many of their underground contemporaries, the group played "heart-on-the-sleeve" rock songs that combined Westerberg's "raw-throated adolescent howl" with self-deprecating lyrics. Notoriously a wayward live act, they often performed under the influence of alcohol and played fragments of covers instead of their own material.

The Sire Years 4LP Limited Edition box set from The Replacements follows on the heels of the 4LP set titles "Twin / Tone Years.

The set includes the albums Tim (1985), Pleased To Meet Me (1987), Don't Tell A Soul (1989), and All Shook Down (1990). The collection includes some of the band's most popular tracks including "Alex Chilton", "Kiss Me On the Bus", "Left of the Dial", "Can't Hardly Wait", "Talent Show", and "Achin' To Be".
