Hüsker Dü began work on their double album Zen Arcade in the summer of 1983, immediately after releasing Metal Circus. Bassist Grant Hart was living in a desanctified church-turned-punk squat in St. Paul, MN. The other tenants were drifters, runaways and musicians, and everybody was enjoying the particularly good LSD that had made its way there. The band was reaching their creative peaks at that time, practicing for hours in the church.

The church later became a shelter for at-risk youths and continues to stand today. If you drive by, you can still see the stained glass windows.
