Hüsker Dü – Diane (1983)

Scroll down to content

The intense, but varied Metal Circus EP/mini-album was released in 1983. Hüsker Dü’s more melodic take on hardcore struck a chord with college students, and various tracks from Metal Circus, particularly Hart’s “Diane,” were put into rotation by dozens of campus radio stations across the U.S. In addition, on Metal Circus the band showed more invention, skill, and melody than it did over the course of their previous full album Everything Falls Apart.

Hey little girl, do you need a ride?
Well, I’ve got room in my wagon, why don’t you hop inside
We could cruise down Robert Street all night long
But I think I’ll just rape you and kill you instead

Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane

I heard there’s a party down at Lake Cove
It would be so much easier if I drove
We could check it out, we could go and see
Oh, won’t you come and take a ride with me?

Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane

We could lay in the weeds for a little while
I’ll put your clothes in a nice, neat little pile
You’re the cutest girl I’ve ever seen in my life
Now, louder now and with my knife

Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane, Diane, Diane
Diane
