No one ever really knows for sure where the course of their lives will take them, and punk rock icon-turned-stand up comedian Joe Sib is no different. Joe first fell in love with the harsh sounds and unconventional aesthetic of the punk scene while taking his first ride through a Northern California skate park at the dawn of the 1980's. From then on, he knew that no matter where life took him, that music and that world would define everything he wanted and beliefs for which he stood. Life would, in fact, take him in many strange directions, including being kicked out of the band Frontline, having his band Wax dropped from one major label only to be picked up by another, founding SideOneDummy Records, and performing stand up as an opener for Metallica's latest tour. No matter what, though, the caustic, grinding soundscapes like those of hardcore punk giants Hüsker Dü's 1985 album New Day Rising have always remained a constant in Joe's life, just as they have left an indelible mark on the many artists whose careers Joe has helped foster.  The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.  For show notes, guest playlists, complimentary documentaries and audiobooks about the music, go to The500Podcast.com.   New Song / Artist influenced by Hüsker Dü:
