My favorite Hüsker Dü* song is "Could You Be The One?" I had already formed this opinion did I learn they recorded this song after they sold out and sucked. It's the same for how I think the Replacements' Tim is their best album, but turns out this was actually their first album after selling out, and instead Let It Be is their best album and indeed one of the best albums of all time. Who knew? Apparently many people, all very hip, but not me with my little walkman and tapes back in the day.
I am not sure what it says about me that I like indie bands, but especially what they do after they stop trying to be so indie or just plain stop being indie. I'm like one of those people who likes ethnic restaurants, so long as they aren't too authentically ethnic.
* I'm writing this while in the midst of way too much of a rush to worry about inserting the umlauts over the u's, and yet I do. I'm not a fan of the board game Hüsker Dü, although I like that it is Danish for "Do you Remember?", except that I had misremembered and thought it was Norwegian instead. So I guess I Hüsker Doont.
Update: Tom's favorite HüDü song is also "Could You Be the One?", although at least he's cool enough to have it on vinyl.
