About "Runaway Train"

"Runaway Train" is a power ballad by American alternative rock band Soul Asylum, released in June 1993 as the fourth single from the band's sixth album, Grave Dancers Union (1992). It became a success around the world, reaching number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and climbing to the top position on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart. The single earned a gold sales certification from the Recording Industry Association of America after selling 600,000 copies in the US. Outside North America, it reached number two in New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland and peaked within the top five on the charts on several other European countries. The song helped bring Grave Dancers Union to a multi-platinum level and won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song in 1994. Its accompanying music video is notable for featuring images of missing people, most of them young children and teenagers. Lead singer Dave Pirner has stated that the lyrics originally described his experience of depression.
