*Spacelab Weekend is a new feature from Spacelab that includes long form video and streaming audio pieces on Friday mornings, as weekend content. Look for more of this each Friday as we hit 2013.

Check out the video of Color Me Obsessed: A Film About The Replacements for a limited time courtesy of Noisey.

The Replacements -- one of the most legendary acts to ever come out of Minneapolis (depending on who you ask) -- released this on DVD on Nov. 20 with Color Me Obsessed, a play on the Mats song. I say depending on who you ask because if you're in the R n B camp, Prince is undoubtedly the biggest act to ever come out of Minneapolis. If you live in the producer world, its Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. If you're punk, you'll spend the rest of the day debating on whether it was the Replacements or Husker Du. And please ... add your comments below on who you think is the biggest and best ever from Minneapolis.

Color Me Obsessed was put together by Gorman Bechard, who wanted to collect every obsessive Replacements fan he could find and hear their story. "I thought, people believe in God without seeing or hearing him but rather through the passion, faith, and stories of others. After watching COLOR ME OBSESSED, I'm pretty sure music fans will believe in The Replacements in much the same way," he said.
