"Runaway Train" is a song by the Minneapolis rock band Soul Asylum. The song led Soul Asylum to international status, and helped bring their album, Grave Dancers Union to a multi-platinum level.

It was the third single off the album (see Soul Asylum discography) and reached No. 5 on the Billboard charts. It won a Grammy Award for the best rock song in 1994.

The song has become synonymous with the band, and has led many people to believe that it is the group's only hit, categorizing Soul Asylum as a one-hit wonder band. However, the band's 1995 hit "Misery" also charted in the Top 40 in several countries including the US and UK, and therefore they are not considered to be a one-hit wonder. "Runaway Train" continues to receive a lot of airplay on the radio today, with disc jockeys often making mention of the influential music video that accompanied the song.

As such, I, as the owner of the 001BlackRose youtube account, take no credit for anything within this video, with the primary exception of having been the one to piece it together.
