American singer and musician, drummer and co-vocalist for Hüsker Dü, an influential post-punk band from the 1980s.

Hart developed a heroin habit during the mid-1980s, inspired in part by an erroneous AIDS diagnosis, leading to the breakup of the band at the end of 1987. Hart got clean and went on to front a new band, Nova Mob, and sustain a solo career.

On 27 January 2011, his family home caught fire, causing damage to the house and many of his belongings. A month later, on 26 February, his mother died in a care facility.

Hart died on 13 September 2017 at 9:02 PM at Fairview University of Minnesota Hospital, Minneapolis, from liver cancer. He was 56.
