Hüsker Dü was an American rock band formed in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1979. The band's continual members were guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton, and drummer/vocalist Grant Hart.
Hüsker Dü first gained notability as a hardcore punk band, then crossed over into alternative rock. Mould and Hart split the songwriting and singing duties.
Following an EP and three LPs on independent label SST Records, including the groundbreaking Zen Arcade (1984), the band signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1986 to release their final two studio albums.
Mould released two solo albums before forming Sugar in the early 1990s, while Hart released a solo album on SST and later formed Nova Mob. Norton has been less active musically since Hüsker Dü's demise and has focused on being a restaurateur.
