Seems to me that the Replacements' sad stuff sounded sad, their pissed stuff sounded pissed, etc.

G, that was kind of my point. Lyrically, Hold Steady songs are a bit closer to the Replacements than to Springsteen, especially when it comes to the kind of people they talk about. What the Hold Steady share with Springsteen is the bringing together of anthemic fist-pumping rock and roll music -- songs of glorious escape -- with stories of people who pretty clearly aren't escaping shit.
