If you know who Soul Asylum are, you can now officially consider yourself middle-aged. But in 1993, they were amongst the biggest bands in America. The alternative rock band played President Bill Clinton's first inauguration. Their lead singer Dave Pirner dated America's sweetheart Winona Ryder, and their video for "Runaway Train" earned them good Samaritan points as a public service announcement for missing kids. But for the last twenty years, no one heard much of them.
This Thursday though, there will be evidence that they still exist. At 8 p.m. at the BB&T Center, Soul Asylum will be performing for free, and you can feel free to reminisce about Doc Martens and mosh pits as you sing along to "Somebody to Shove."
In honor of Soul Asylum's upcoming concert, here are ten other bands from the nineties who you might not realize are still touring. And if you haven't heard of these bands, go raid your parents CD collection (CDs are the shiny discs that... Ah, never mind you whippersnappers).
