The album was originally released on April 16, 1991 to little fanfare, only selling around 70,000 copies, but in the summer of 1992, the album received new attention. Though the album had been released more than a year earlier, A&M Records realized that they had in their catalog what was essentially a collaboration between Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, who had both risen to mainstream attention in the months since the album’s release due to the growing popularity of grunge music. A&M decided to re-issue the album and promote “Hunger Strike” as a single, with the video subsequently entering heavy rotation on MTV. The attention allowed both the album and single to chart on Billboard.
