Jon Wurster on trying to play Hüsker Dü songs when he first joined Bob Mould's band:
I couldn’t believe I was actually going to get to play Hüsker Dü songs with Bob Mould.

The show went surprisingly well considering we had only that day’s soundcheck for rehearsal. The Hüsker Dü songs, however, were much tougher to play than I expected. Though the Twin Cities rage-pop trio provided the soundtrack to my late-teens, I’d never actually PLAYED any of those songs on the drums before that day. I thought I was a pretty good drummer but I realized I was going to have to work extra hard if I was going to come even close to replicating drummer Grant Hart’s swing, feel and…DAMN him…those lightning-fast rolls.

That "swing" was such a big part of the Husker sound. Hearing the songs played by Mould with other drummers sounds off. The ones I've heard typically feel to stiff for me.
