Soul Asylum- Nice Guys (Don't Get Paid)

The nice guys are gone.

A lifetime before "Runaway Train," Twin/Tone recording artists Soul Asylum were just another great bar band. Booze would flow, and by the end of the night, most everyone on and off the stage was sloppy. Soul Asylum would fall back on absurd covers of metal standards and AM radio fare. This song from the out-of-print And the Horse They Rode In On hints at those days. Karl Mueller, Soul Asylum bassist and songwriter, died in June
