"Shine" is the debut single by the American post-grunge band Collective Soul. It served as the lead single from their 1994 debut album Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid. It was released a week before the album was released. "Shine" would remain the band's most well known song and a hallmark of 1990s alternative rock.
It became the #1 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. The song then went on to peak at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week. Held out from the top ten by Back & Forth by Aaliyah.
VH1 would later rank "Shine" at #42 on their list of the "100 Greatest Songs of the '90s."
