Husker Du co-founder Grant Hart dies after cancer battle

As one of the pioneers of the American alternative-rock movement that peaked with Nirvana, the fact that the group's songs have been covered in recent years by both the Foo Fighters and Green Day speaks to the scope and the lasting power of their influence.

Grant formed Husker Du with bandmates Bob Mould and Greg Norton in 1979 helping to usher in a new wave of punk with hardcore leanings, but at the same time, melodic and digestible, particularly to the college crowd of the 1980s.

Shkreli, dressed in a lavender button-down shirt, was animated for much of the hearing, as he had been throughout his trial. The Secret Service had even launched an investigation on Shkreli that required "a significant expenditure of resources".


Following the band's demise in the late '80s, Hart went on to have a solo career as well as playing in Nova Mob.

Hart has been cited as an influence for artists and drummers such as Dave Grohl.

While the Huskers' split was so bitter that the bandmembers only recently began communicating regularly again-around the forthcoming release of "Savage Young Du", a sprawling three-disc compilation of much of the band's earliest material.

In a tribute to Hart posted on his Facebook page, Mould recalled the band's origins and posted photos of himself and Hart. The band's album Zen Arcade received accolades.

The tragic news of Grant's passing was not unexpected to me. The band was our life. "My deepest condolences and thoughts to Grant's family, friends, and fans around the world", he wrote. "Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember".
