Check out this awesome (if nonexistent) band!

Recently, the Strib's weekly freebie,, came out with its highly anticipated "list of lists" issue. Getting input from an "army of opinionated web users," that "contributed thousands of items," ranked, among other things, the top 10 "must-see local bands."

Number 10 on the list was the Hockey Night, indisputably one of the best bands to come out of Minnesota in the last long while. "It's quite an honor," said Alex Achen, one of the band's two drummers. Just one problem, as Achen was quick to point out: The band hasn't played a show in more than five months, because that's when they broke up.

Next year, be sure to vote for Hüsker Dü.
