Tim is a 1985 (see 1985 in music) album by The Replacements. The album was a huge success among critics and on college radio[?], and helped the band's fanbase grow considerably. Tim is somewhat more clean and accessible than The Replacements' previous efforts, but still maintains a garage rock sound.

Stylistically, the album shows Paul Westerberg[?]'s diverse influences, including Alex Chilton[?]'s Big Star on "Hold My Life", Roy Orbison and Duane Eddy on "Swinging Party" and Chuck Berry and Nick Lowe on "Kiss Me on the Bus". Lyrically, the album is typical of Westerberg's style. The songs are an assortment of alienated narratives from a motley crew of low lifes and losers, often tragically unable to function as a responsible adult.

The album peaked at #183 on the Billboard Music Chart[?]'s Top 200.
