In celebration of its historical debut, Garbage’s special 20th Anniversary Edition of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album is available in stores and at all digital retailers today.


Garbage released their genre defying, groundbreaking debut on August 15, 1995 at a time when grunge music dominated the airwaves and mainstream culture. Their distinctive approach to songwriting and production – blending elements of rock, pop and electronic music – captured the attention of critics and fans all over the world. As Stereogum describes Garbage,  “It’s an important record for many reasons, not the least of which is that it helped bridge the gap between noisy alternative rock and mainstream pop – incorporating everything from burgeoning electronica to buzz-saw guitars and just the slightest whiffs of trip-hoppy industrial music.” The album spawned multiple hits including: “Vow,” “Queer,” “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains.” It spent more than a year on both the U.S. and U.K. charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated for GRAMMY® Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (“Stupid Girl”). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.

The new version has been re-mastered from the original analog tapes and features all of the remixes and previously unreleased tracks from the lauded album. To purchase the CD package, click HERE. To purchase digital album configurations click HERE. Garbage will also be releasing a double vinyl LP available October 30th in Europe.
