YMMV / Hüsker Dü

  • Chorus-Only Song: "New Day Rising" and "If I Told You". Justified, since they are also Single Stanza Songs.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Pretty much the entirety of Zen Arcade and New Day Rising, and a good number of individual songs as well.
  • Ear Worm: Lots of them. Excellent examples include "Every Everything", "Turn On the News", "Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely", "New Day Rising", "Something I Learned Today", "Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill", and "Makes No Sense at All".
  • Growing the Beard: It is generally agreed that Zen Arcade is where they came into their own musically and conceptually. Some fans may cite Metal Circus as the point where this happened instead, though it's almost always considered a lesser work than Zen Arcade.
  • Nightmare Fuel: "The Tooth Fairy and the Princess"
  • Tear Jerker: Songs such as "Pink Turns to Blue", "Keep Hanging On", "Don't Know Yet", "Too Far Down", "Hardly Getting Over It", and "No Promise Have I Made" certainly qualify for this trope. In particular, if they made a Surprisingly Gentle Song, chances are it will also be a Tear Jerker.
  • Vindicated by History: They never managed to break out of the underground while they were still together, though after their demise they would come to be widely regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of their era.
