After forming in Madison, WI, Garbage released their self-titled debut album in 1995 and rode a wave of visually arresting, female-fronted alternative rock bands.  The album spawned the hit singles "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains" and was certified double platinum in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 

The band won the Breakthrough Artist Award at the 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards, and was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy Award. Their second album, ‘Version 2.0,’ was released in 1998 and topped the charts in the United Kingdom. 

It was nominated for two Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Best Rock Album.  2001's ‘Beautiful Garbage’ was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 10 Albums Of The Year.  In 2005, Garbage released ‘Bleed Like Me,’ earning the band its highest chart position with a No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart.

In 2007, the band released a retrospective collection called ‘Absolute Garbage.’ Garbage has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide. They have performed in over thirty-five countries and will tour extensively worldwide in support of this new release.
