Pitchfork 500 - Dec. 12th - Hüsker Dü

Bob Mould is a legend and this song is Pink to Blue as played by Hüsker Dü.

The song is from the album Zen Arcade from 1984. The lyrics of Zen Arcade are usually interpreted as telling the story, in the first person, of an adolescent who runs away to escape an unfulfilling home life. In this song he tries drugs.

Rolling Stones writer David Fricke described Zen Arcade as "the closest hardcore will ever get to an opera ... a kind of thrash Quadrophenia."

Check it out. It has huge levels of energy.
