"Chartered Trips" or "Pink Turns To Blue"
"Makes No Sense At All" or "Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely"

Discuss.

Please do not allow Sugar or post-Du output influence your decision.

Think carefully before you answer. Remember, John McLaughlin is watching you.

I'm was going to listen to Flip Your Wig loud enough to make me shit a little in my pants, but I can't find it. Guess we're going with Zen Arcade instead.

Obviously, if you include post Husker Du stuff, Mould is the big winner.

Nevertheless, while I like plenty of Hart's songs, I think Mould comes out on top with his songs and great guitar playing.

I don't care for Mould's voice. Never liked Sugar either. So one vote for Hart.

Very Eleanor Clift of you Steve. WRONG. The correct answer is Grant Hart. And I like Sugar.

I like 'em both, although I was never a big fan of Mould's work in Sugar.

i'm not a fan of either, but i think that "divide and conquor" is the best punk song ever.

Although Grant's high points may be a bit higher than Bob's, I have to go with Bob because he had MORE great songs.

I'm gonna be a prick here & say "neither" because it wasn't/cannot be Du without both. It's like saying "which is yer favorite part of the cookie dough - the eggs or the flour"...without one or the other, them's some shitty cookies.

Grant Hart solo is significantly greater than Bob Mould solo. Bob Mould in a band setting, however . . . well, Sugar's one of my favorites of all time, let's just put it that way. Bob needs someone else around to reign him in, lest he get too angsty and noise-obsessed, especially lately. I mean, can anyone say modulate? That was truthfully one of the worst albums I've ever bought.

Wait, what? Oh. I was confused, thought you meant only solo material. Well, then . . . I have to go with the cake reference above. Can't have one without the other.

You were all wrong (except 4 of you) and now Grant Hart is dead. #rip
