Bob Mould is one of those musicians everyone has felt the impact of but few actually know. Mould, along with drummer/vocalist Glenn Hart and bassist Greg Norton, formed Hüsker Dü in the late '70s. The band would go on to become one of the most important and influential bands of the '80s. Major artists like Green Day, The Foo Fighters and the Pixies are all indebted to Mould and company's mixture of punk rock ferocity and pop accessibility.
