Bob Mould (b. 16 October 1960, Malone, New York) is an American musician, principally known for his work as guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for influential 1980s rock band HÃ¼sker DÃ¼.
Formed in the late 1970s after Mould moved to the Twin Cities to attend Macalester College, HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ first gained notice as a "speed-core" punk rock band on the independent label SST Records, but over time Mould and bandmates Grant Hart and Greg Norton evolved musically, adding tuneful melodies to their explosive sound; the band became one of the key influences on what later became known as alternative rock.
In the mid-1980s the HÃ¼skers signed a major-label deal with Warner Brothers, but the band released just two records before bitterly splitting up; Mould and Hart still take jabs at each other in the press, though the two performed together at a 2005 benefit concert.
