Garbage is Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig. After releasing their self-titled debut album in 1995, their second album Version 2.0 was released in 1998. Version 2.0 topped charts all over the world and garnered multiple Grammy Award nominations, including Album Of The Year.

Version 2.0 is in my opinion the quintessential garbage record,” shared Garbage singer Shirley Manson. “We are all very grateful to the millions of people who took it to their hearts at the time it was released and to those who continue to love on it still”.

Speaking about the enduring legacy of the record, the band’s drummer and co-producer Butch Vig explains:Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence. When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”

Version 2.0 charted at #5 on the ARIA Album Chart in Australia and #1 in New Zealand. The album went on to be certified platinum in Australia, New Zealand and the United States, and double platinum in the United Kingdom. Version 2.0 was nominated for four Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Album, and Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for ‘Special’. The video for ‘Push It’ was nominated for eight MTV Video Music Awards.

Shirley Manson recently won the NME’s prestigious ‘Icon’ award at their Brixton Academy ceremony in February. A suitably fitting tribute to one of rock’s great pioneers and provocateurs, the award serves as further indication of the impact Garbage have already left in the alternative rock landscape and on the mainstream.
