Although it did not achieve the success of its predecessors, it received positive reviews and only one single, " Into Another ", charted in the US. As of , Skid Row rarely plays any songs from Subhuman Race live; most of them were last performed on the album's tour in , while "Beat Yourself Blind" is the only song they have played live with its subsequent singers Johnny Solinger and ZP Theart.
At that point, the band shifted to performing at smaller venues and its videos were rarely played on MTV , partly because of the rise in popularity of grunge and subsequent decline of many s heavy metal styles.
Eventually, Bach left the band in late after an argument with Bolan who turned down an opening slot on the Kiss reunion tour even though Bach already booked it. Other band members told Bach that Skid Row was too big for an opening act and that they were not going to do the show.
Bach then left a message on a bandmate's answering machine telling them the band was never too big to open for Kiss. Bolan had a side project, a punk band Prunella Scales who was playing at the same time as the planned Kiss show. The rift between Bach and the other band members subsequently led to him leaving Skid Row. Speaking in about the next Skid Row album, Hill said "we haven't sat down and recorded anything yet, but we have sat down and worked out some ideas and just played them on a handheld recorder.
Everybody's writing and we're getting into that mind set. Once the wheels get in motion we'll all probably fly out to Atlanta spend a week or two up there come home, go back up there do it again, we're all living in different cities, which can make it difficult at times.

I'm 44 now,there was a time when I almost made a bad choice. I was in a bad situation, I decided I could take on three people. I fought my best and lost, horribly. I came back later that night AM with the full intent to do great bodily harm to anyone that was still there.
Two of the guys were still there, passed out. Instead of commiting a crime, I simply left a sticky note where each person was passed out, It simply said: Bam! You could have woke up dead!
