Big Head Todd and the Monsters’ 1993 breakthrough album Sister Sweetly spent over a year on the Billboard Top 200. The album launched three hit singles: “Bittersweet,” “Broken Hearted Savior” and “Circle,” all of which reached Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. Sister Sweetly was certified platinum within a year of its release.
Soul Asylum’s Grave Dancers Union sold over three million albums and spent 76 weeks on the Billboard charts after its 1992 release. The album features hits like “Somebody to Shove,” “Black Gold” and “Runaway Train.” “Runaway Train” was awarded a GRAMMY in 1993 in the “Best Rock Song” category.
Together with Bob Marley, the Wailers have sold over 250 million albums and have played to an estimated 24 million people across the globe. The band’s twelfth album, Legend, is the best-selling reggae album of all time. The anchor of the band is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who was co-producer on many of Marley’s records and was responsible for almost all of the bass lines on Marley’s hits.
Matthew Sweet’s third album Girlfriend has been called the “best power pop album of the 1990s” (A.V. Club). The album hit No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and went gold in the U.S. on the strength of its two singles.
