Hüsker Dü - Diane

I've been trying to work a Hüsker Dü angle for a while, and this one works nicely. It's Friday the 13th, and this is a creepy-ass song about a Minneapolis teenager named Diane Edwards who was kidnapped, raped and murdered on her way home from work in 1980. It's also the first Hüsker Dü song that got any real national exposure (such as it was), getting picked up by college radio stations.
