Garbage, which hails from Madison, Wisconsin, received early success in 1995 with their self-titled debut record, which sold over four million copies and produced hit singles "Only Happy When it Rains" and "Stupid Girl." Their 1998 sophomore effort, Version 2.0, not only matched the sales of their debut, but also received Grammy nominations for "Best Rock Album" and "Album of the Year." The music video for single, "Push It," received eight nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards. In May 2012, the band released their long-awaited fifth studio album Not Your Kind Of People. The record was named one of the best albums of 2012 by Rolling Stone. The band is looking to release their sixth album in 2014.
