Hüsker Dü


Punk/hardcore trio who were formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, in January 1979. Hüsker Dü (which means "Do you remember" in Danish and Norwegian, but is actually spelt without diaereses) mixed pop and punk music and consisted of guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton and drummer/vocalist Grant Hart. They started out as a punk band before gravitating toward hardcore then expanding into more melodic songs. After releasing a string of albums, Hüsker Dü split in January 1988 due to Grant Hart's alcohol and drug problems, and the suicide of the band's manager, David Savoy Jr.

Bob Mould went on to form Sugar (5), whilst Grant Hart formed Nova Mob with both of them disbanding their respective groups in the mid-'90s and going on to only produce for their solo projects. Greg Norton stepped away the music business for a number of years to become a restaurant owner but returned to performing again in the 2000s.

Grant Hart died of cancer on September 14th 2017.
