Shine" is the debut single by American alternative rock band Collective Soul. It served as the lead single from their 1993–1994 debut album Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid. Shine" would remain the band's most well known song and a hallmark of 1990s alternative rock. It became the number one Album Rock Song of 1994, and won a Billboard award for Top Rock Track. The song also reached the top of the Album Rock Tracks for eight weeks.
This song launched the career of Collective Soul. Ed Roland wrote it in 1989 when he was in a band called Marching Two-Step. That group petered out, and in 1992 Roland formed Collective Soul. The group was loosely knit, with members pursuing other projects as well. Their first album, Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, was recorded as a demo for Roland, who was looking for work as a songwriter. The album was issued on an independent label in 1993; the Georgia State University radio station, WRAS, started playing "Shine," which was then picked up by WJRR in Orlando, Florida. Other stations followed suit, and a bidding war broke out for the band. In early 1994, they signed with Atlantic, which issued the album with lots of promotional push and released "Shine" as the first single. It was a hit, helping the album sell over 2 million copies in America.
