Cited as one of the most influential bands of the 90s, Minnesota-native Soul Asylum's "Grave Dancers Union" sold more than three million albums. After spending 76 weeks on the Billboard charts, the album was certified triple platinum. The album features hits like "Somebody to Shove," "Black Gold," and "Runaway Train," which was awarded a Grammy in 1993 for Best Rock Song. Fans of the band will relish the chance to hear the album in its entirety live at Target Field.
From a band with a quirky name and a fabulously original sound, this breakthrough album went platinum, spending more than a year on the Billboard Top 200. The album launched with three hit singles "Bittersweet," "Broken Hearted Savior" and "Circle," all of which reached Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart.
Matthew Sweet's third album, "Girlfriend," has been called the "best power pop album of the 1990's" (A.V. Club). The album hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and went gold in the U.S. on the strength of its two singles "Divine Intervention" and "Girlfriend."
Originally from Austin, Minn., Gear Daddies released three popular albums, becoming an important part of the Twin Cities music scene. "Boys Will be Boys" and "Zamboni" are classic tunes that helped put Minnesota on the 1990s music map.
