Made to Be Broken is the second full-length album from Soul Asylum. It is also the first of three albums of Soul Asylum to be released in 1986.

The song "Never Really Been" contained the line "And where will you be in 1993." The band performed the song on their 1993 appearance on MTV Unplugged, by which time they'd seen their first platinum-selling album and number one single. They won a Grammy and performed at the presidential inauguration that same year.
