Reunite Husker Du!

There simply is NO "punk" artist (except perhaps Social Distortion) who more deserves to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame than Bob Mould. The influence of Husker Du, Sugar, and Mould's solo records on modern alternative rock is incalculable.

His mastery of punk and power-pop songwriting and guitar styles is unsurpassed. Husker Du's next-to-last album, "Candy Apple Grey", ranks solidly among the top 25 hard-rock albums of all time - far superior to most of the 70s rubbish that usually appears on such lists. His brilliant collaboration with Anton Fier and Tony Maimone on "Black Sheets Of Rain" is perhaps the closest thing to a punk supergroup as there's ever been.

A couple entire generations of alt/grunge/hardcore/punk bands owe their existence to Husker Du and Bob Mould, although many of their young fans have probably never heard of him.
