Initially in the shadow of fellow Minnesotans, Husker Du, Soul Asylum tasted the big time in the tails of the Seattle grunge movement in the early 90’s. By that time, they had been around a few years but they already had the Grunge look, just enough of that sound and songs that were melodic enough to grant them success in the Alternative and Mainstream set. Although they did manage sell more albums than their Minnesota brethren, and they were one of the more successful alt bands of the early 90’s, chances are that the shadows they overcame will reemerge and they will see themselves passed over for induction.
