Soul Asylum's official music video for 'Black Gold'.
Black Gold" is a 1993 single performed by the Minneapolis rock band Soul Asylum. It, along with the band's more famous hit "Runaway Train", helped bring their album, Grave Dancers Union to a multi-platinum level. The song was written by Soul Asylum's lead singer Dave Pirner. It was the second single from their album (see Soul Asylum discography). The music video for the song was directed by American filmmaker Zack Snyder, who also directed the "Somebody to Shove" videoclip.
Soul Asylum signed with Columbia Records and released Grave Dancers Union in 1992. The album's first single, "Somebody to Shove", went to number one on the Modern Rock chart, and "Black Gold" also received significant airplay on radio and MTV. "Runaway Train" crossed over to the pop charts, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993 and winning the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. The song's music video, directed by Tony Kaye, features photos of missing children and was adapted for several international markets.
Produced by Michael Beinhorn. Album Grave Dancers Union. Two boys on a playground Trying to push each other down See the crowd gather 'round Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd. Black gold in a white plight Won't you fill up the tank, let's go for a ride I don't care 'bout no wheelchair I've got so much left to do with my life. Moving backwards through time Never learn, never mind That side's yours, this side's mine Brother you ain't my kind

Black Gold: The Best Of Soul Asylum.
Soul Asylum lead singer Dave Pirner wrote this war-themed song. Black Gold" is oil, and the song deals with the first Gulf War, with the "Two boys on a playground" being metaphors for USA and Iraq. Midway through the song there are some sounds of sirens, screams and what appears to be a news report. When we spoke with Pirner in 2013, he explained: "Here's a song that I wrote 20 years ago that was begging people to grow up, and I guess it doesn't happen.
