Dave Pirner Is 50


Everyone will tell you Soul Asylum was much better before they got big, but that is what everyone says about everything they love that they knew prior to its becoming popular, so a lot of times it is just wrong. I mean, no one is defending "Runaway Train"—no one could—but the back half of their career had as much underappreciated stuff as the beginning. Anyway, happy birthday, Dave Pirner. Those of us who dream of disappearing completely will always love you for this song.

I will defend Runaway Train as an excellent pop song until the day I get so jaded that life's mysteries have completely faded and I'm neither here nor there.

When I was in 6th grade, Somebody to Shove was my main jam.
