It was a single from their third album, Subhuman Race. This is the last single Skid Row released with Sebastian Bach. The song reached 28 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. Note: It's an interesting song with tempo changes in the intro and chorus. They did a 7 4 time signature. It is very curious, because at that time pop and rock music had become very simple and minimalist, so it was surprising for Skid Row to release a single in an odd time signature and surprising that it entered the rock airplay charts.

Looking back on the release of Skid Row 's sophomore album on June 11, , it's hard to decide who was most surprised about its heavy sound and aggressive attitude: the band's supportive pop metal fan-base or critics who had dismissed them as soft pretty boys. Any way you slice it, the New Jersey rockers bucked expectations with Slave to the Grind. We saw what else was happening out there. I liked Pantera. I loved Cowboys From Hell. The tunes penned for Slave to the Grind by Skid Row's chief songwriters, bassist Rachel Bolan and guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo exuded an altogether tougher attitude than the band's debut. Another memorable cut, "Psycho Love," concealed some dark melodies midway through and the lyrically deep "Quicksand Jesus" added some acoustic guitars. But fans still had to wait all of 30 minutes for a proper power ballad and, when it came, "In a Darkened Room" was anything but a pithy love song.
