That Was Weird

Before there was Green Day, before there was Nirvana and Pearl Jam, there was Hüsker Dü. The band to which the entire genre owes its undying allegiance.

They were from Minneapolis. My sister graduated with the drummer. They rock.

Enjoy one of the more awkward moments of their career appearing on the Twin Cities-based Good Company show in 1986. I don't think the old ladies in the audience quite knew what to make of it.

Thank you, Sven. Not just for enlightening the rest of the world about Husker Du, but for bringing back Steve and Sharon.

Ahhh...but did you notice that Sharon was nowhere to be seen? I don't think that was by accident.
