This chaotic rocker is a track on Soul Asylum's fourth album, which was produced by Lenny Kaye and Ed Stasium. Those who know the band through their 1993 hit "Runaway Train
" would be surprised to hear the raw energy of "Heavy Rotation," the kind of song Soul Asylum couldn't do once they hit it big. Lead singer Dave Pirner, who wrote the song, told us in 2013, "After the band made Grave Dancers Union
[1993 album], it became really hard for me to get a song like 'Heavy Rotation' on a record. Because after Grave Dancers Union
people had a tendency to go, 'What the f--k is that?' 'Heavy Rotation' does not sound like a song."
