Watch now Hüsker Dü's video clip of album "Live On The Joan Rivers Show 1987". Live On The Joan Rivers Show 1987.
Here’s one of the greatest punk bands ever, Hüsker Dü, appearing on network TV on what might have been the verge of stardom, if not for the fact that the mainstream would never really be ready for their brand of hard driving pop. And of course the punk scene (or MRR at least) had decided that they were no longer hard enough.
Warehouse: Songs and Stories (1987) is the sixth and final studio album by alternative rock band Hüsker Dü, originally released by Warner Bros.
As the world mourns the loss of one of the greatest comedic talents of all time, we celebrate the life of Joan Rivers by looking back on her willingness to embrace the one and only, Husker Du. Calling them "one of the most prolific rock groups in the country," Rivers welcomed the Minnesota alternative rockers to her late night talk show, 'The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers,' on April 27, 1987.
Joan Rivers died this week at the age of 81, leaving behind an unparalleled comedic legacy. But her tenure as a talk show host-from fall 1986 through spring 1987 on Fox's "The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers" and later on the early 90s daytime talk show "The Joan Rivers Show"-also led to some rather iconic (and infamous) musical performances. Whether because Fox was so new-or because nobody else would have some of these acts-Rivers managed to get away with some pretty subversive stuff on "The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers. Public Enemy Soon after the release of Fear Of A Black Planet, Public Enemy appeared on The Joan Rivers Show and performed an incendiary version of "Brothers Gonna Work it Ou. Notable also for Flavor Flav having the chance to say, "Yeahhhhhhhhhhh, Joan!" just before the commercial break.
The appearance followed the release of Hüsker Dü's second album for Warner Bros. and last record, period), Warehouse: Songs and Stories. Besides proving they were one indie band not beholden to image or fashion in the slightest, the Rivers gig also demonstrated how they were more than willing to play the music industry game. It proved Rivers was game, too. She misstates the title of the song - You Could Be the One, instead of Could You Be the One? – but goes on to ask relatively pointed questions about them leaving the radical underground for the corporate music world
Could You Be the One? (Hüsker Dü song). Could You Be The One?" is a song by Hüsker Dü from their double album Warehouse: Songs and Stories. The song was released as a single and an EP, both in the United Kingdom. the last real gasp from a band that was about to hit the wall. A video was filmed for the song, and it was the band's only video that had them performing on a soundstage as opposed to featuring live clips of them playing.
