It makes no sense at all"
—Hüsker Dü, "Makes No Sense At All"
Hüsker Dü were an American Hardcore Punk/Alternative Rock band from Minneapolis, MN who were together from 1979-1988. They were composed of singer/guitarist/lyricist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton and drummer/lyricist Grant Hart. While they never had a hit record, among their most well-known work is the Concept Album Zen Arcade, the follow-up New Day Rising, their Cover Version of The Byrds' "Eight Miles High," and their single "Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely," which was notably featured in the film Adventureland and covered by Green Day. They are regarded as seminal in the creation of the Alternative Rock and Post-Hardcore genres.As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.
