The cover of Hüsker Dü's landmark 1984 album Zen Arcade features a hand-colored photo of a car-crushing yard. This location is down in the Pig's Eye Lake industrial area (not sure if this is the exact address, but it's close to there).

Zen Arcade was released on SST Records (#027), the artwork was done by Fake Name Graphics, and the photo was taken by M. Peterson.

The album was recorded at Total Access Recording Studio in Redondo Beach, CA with SST producer Spot. The band recorded 25 tracks, with all but two songs being first takes ("Something I Learned Today" and "Newest Industry"), in 40 hours.
