By 12.Sep.0816 Comments

Well, well, well. . . we knew it was only a matter of time. Download Bored of Edukation on Amazon now! It’s a single 4:46 song for 99 cents. I’ll pass on the Tunecore link for those not in the US as soon as I can.

Dudes, did you know Bob Mould was writing his autobiography? How come nobody tells me this stuff!

This is an awful lot of news for a damn Friday. What the hell people?


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.

    When his puns are off….man- they get smelly.
    Bored of education?
    Really Paul?
    Your better than that. Go write some handful- of -friends -one -needs -a -match -and -one -needs -some -ice level stuff.
    Bored of education…pfft.
    Good song though…

  • Jodi says:

    My jury is still out on the song. I do like the whole Icarus/Daedalus thing, but that myth just appeals to me on a really personal level. However, musically, it might be a bit, I dunno, boring?

  • jay says:

    Ya. But ya know what rules? That Studio demo of kiss me on the bus coming out next week!!!!!!!!!! Holy fuckballs it rawks!

  • Jodi says:

    Fuckballs? I don’t think I’ve ever seen such creative cursing.

  • jay says:

    Oh, I have much more colorful examples…i use them sparingly, so as not water down their impact. So when I say Fuckballs!, you know I mean Fuckballs!

  • Jodi says:

    I gotta say the fuckballs got me to listen to the demo. I’ve been in resissue denial because I’m having a hard time justifying the $50 or whatever when I haven’t had a job since March. Boo!

    However, Kiss me on the Bus is pretty damn good.

  • Jonathon says:

    Bob needs to move back here, or back to Texas. “District Line” was good, but too peppy. Nothing brings a body down like the perpetual construction in the Twin Cities. Except for being in Texas…

  • Jodi says:

    I agree Jonathon. All I know is that if Bobby boy isn’t dishing some dirt on the whole Grant thing I am going to be crying BULLSHIT at the top of my lungs.

  • A teacher says:

    50% of me likes it, cause it’s Paul. The other 50%, as a teacher, thinks it just contributes to the bashing of today’s education. Paul was bored. Is Johnny? Was everyone? Is there a better way?

    Paul’s hate of education did him well. He wakes up, gets his coffee, and goes down to the basement to record songs. Damn, wish I could do that with a masters in Ed.

    Is there a better way to educate kids?

  • blasty says:

    The song is alright, but there are better songs that appear as only snippets on 49:00 and 3oclockreep. Would have preferred this as a part of one of those songs, and had a full version of Devil Raised a Good Boy or Goodnight Sweet Prince.
    I give it 3 out of 5 crackers.

    And Bob Mould’s new album is set to be released in February of 2009, which means we should be seeing it around Labor Day of 2011. He also plans a full band tour to follow. Hope it’s more like Body of Song and less like District Line.

  • Jimdracula says:

    “Bored of Edukation” is awright, but I rank it more as a field goal than a no shit touchdown…

    I think today’s education needs a little bashing, O btw.

  • Jake says:

    He needs to play a damn show so all of us nerds can come together and go and get smashed and yell paul all night.

  • Phil says:

    I look forward to Grant Hart’s retaliatory bio. Then Bob’s bio to answer that bio. Then Grant’s. Then Bob. Greg will continue staying out of it and being a kickass chef. We should all be kickass chefs.


  • blasty says:

    That’s pretty good, Phil!

    I get the feeling that Grant would welcome a Husker Du reunion. His solo career hasn’t taken off like Bob’s, and it was he that initiated playing a couple of songs with Bob at the Rock For Karl benefit. Also, when I saw Bob and his band play First Avenue in ’05, Grant was reportedly in the audience.

    I do like Hart’s solo projects. I wish he would release something new.

  • Awesome tune, and I’m not even into that type of music. I really love it!
