“There’s always been the argument: Where did punk rock start? Who cares? It’s not where did it start, it’s why did it start? —Bob Mould, 1981

Bob Mould returns to the city where Hüsker Dü began for Rock the Garden 2013. To mark the occasion, we asked journalist (and punk drummer) Jeff Severns Guntzel to dig into the local archives for a look at Mould’s musical, political, and personal roots.
