Pushing their post-hardcore concepts even further, Hüsker Dü created a sprawling and brilliant concept album, the first hardcore opera. “Broken Home, Broken Heart” follows a boy running away from an abusive home, with frantic guitars and even more frantic drumming. On “Somewhere,” the boy finds love amid guitars that are no less ferocious. The album ends with “Reoccurring Dreams,” a 14-minute instrumental that pushes sound to the brink of madness before ending with an eerie calm, telling a story inside of a story.
