The Replacements continued their unlikely comeback after 20 plus years away at Bumbershoot in Seattle over Labor Day Weekend.

The band played on its own, without Green Day's Billie Armstrong who has been joining them on tour, tearing through a selection of the group's best-loived songs to an appreciative, packed audience on the festival's mainstage.

The group has not released any official video from its sporadic festival appearances but fans have posted a number of videos on YouTube. Here is a look at six of the best performances from the show.

1. Favorite Thing: The group opened with a fast-paced performance of one of their best-lived songs.

2. Alex Chilton: This one was especially poignant because a little while after The 'Mats came off-stage a number of performers got together to perform Chilton's band Big Star's third album.

3. I want You Back: The boys pull off a Jackson 5 cover.

4. Color Me Impressed: Paul's whistling in the beginning sets the tone.

5. I Will Dare: No Peter Buck cameo even though he was at the festival for the Big Star show.

6. Left of the Dial: Paul climbs off the stage and performs this one at crowd level.
