According to Minneapolis musician and City Pages writer Jim Walsh, the Replacements played a high school dance at this building back in the day. He is fairly certain that the line "we are the sons of no one" from "Bastards of Young" comes from that experience. Also according to Walsh, the 'Mats refused to help carry other band's equipment.

The Sons of Norway is a Norwegian fraternal benefit society that now houses a Wells Fargo branch.
