The members of Minneapolis-based Soul Asylum started playing together in the early 1980s, their first album seeing the light of day in 1984. Their punk-inspired sound was hard-edged, but full of inventive melodic ideas and unusual song structures. Led by in-your-face frontman Dave Pirner, the hard-working band eventually broke through to the mainstream with their 1993 hit "Runaway Train." The band went on hiatus after 1998's Candy from a Stranger, with Pirner releasing a solo album, but they began performing together again in 2002 and released several albums, including 2012's Delayed Reaction. ~ Rovi Staff
