Artist of the Day 1

Today's Artist is Garbage.
Garbage is a Scottish/American rock group formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1994. The band members are Duke Erikson, Shirley Manson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig.

Garbage released a string of increasingly successful singles in 1995–1996, culminating in the hit "Stupid Girl". The debut album, Garbage, was an unexpected smash, selling over 5 million copies and reaching double platinum status in the UK, USA and Australia. Garbage spent two years working on a follow-up album, Version 2.0, which topped the charts in the UK and peaked at #13 in the US. The album was nominated for two Grammy Awards, Album of the Year and Best Rock Album, and sold over 5 million copies. In 1999, the band performed the theme song to the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough. That year, they also contributed the song "When I Grow Up" for the Adam Sandler movie Big Daddy.

The band struggled to sustain their initial success, and the band's 2001 third album beautifulgarbage failed to match the commercial success achieved by its predecessors. The band struggled to remain together and almost split in 2003, before returning with Bleed Like Me in 2005, peaking at a career-high #4 in the United States.

The band cut short a 2005 world tour, and announced an indefinite hiatus, but emphasized the stoppage was not a break-up. Garbage reunited in early 2007 to record new tracks for the greatest hits album, Absolute Garbage, that was released in July 2007.
