Happy Easter Monday! In addition to spending time with loved ones yesterday, we hope you all made an effort to avoid some April Fools pranks. To kick off the first week of April, we begin our “Misrepresented” series; where we talk about big hits from bands that ended up being misrepresented as a result. We start off with Soul Asylum and their 1992 hit “Runaway Train.”
FUN FACT: The video for “Runaway Train” featured missing children, along with a call-to-action at the end of the video that encouraged viewers to call a phone number if they knew the location of the children. According to a Boston Herald article at the time, there were three versions of the video that aired in the United States, with different children shown in each one.
