Hoover was an American post-hardcore band from Washington, D.C. Formed in 1992, Hoover went on to produce some of the more intense music to appear on the Dischord Records label in the 1990s. Compared to Fugazi, Hoover was more experimental and permissive, incorporating elements of jazz and dub, and not limiting themselves to an aggressive stance. Unusually, three of the four members shared vocal duties equally.
Vulture.com listed their song "Electrolux" as one of the greatest emo songs of the early 1990s.
Hoover disbanded in 1994, but have reformed twice: once in 1997 to record a mini-album of 'odds and ends', and again in 2004 for a series of dates in the US and Europe.
