Bob Mould

“Rolling Stone says Bob Mould’s 2020 release Blue Hearts “feels like a lost Hüsker Dü album with Mould howling invective over his buzzsawing guitar,” raging against COVID-19, right-wing politics, and other foes. A founding member of the legendary Minneapolis punk band in the early ‘80s, he’s pursued a solo career since they broke up, exploring moods from alt-rock frontiers from introspective to furious. As Allmusic’s Mark Deming puts it, “Bob Mould began his career as one of the angry upstarts of the hardcore punk scene, and over several decades he’s matured into one of the elder statesmen of alternative rock without giving up his integrity, his intelligence, or the fierce passion of his best music.”
