Butch Vig is the rock genius behind the production board of several legendary rock albums. Prior to Garbage's success, Vig produced Nirvana's Nevermind, Sonic Youth's Dirty, and the Smashing Pumpkins albums Siamese Dream and Gish, just to name a few. Add on sultry rocker Shirley Manson and guitarists Duke Erikson and Steve Marker, and Garbage was born. Their self-titled debut blew away fans and critics alike around the world. The singles "Stupid Girl" and "I'm Only Happy When it Rains" catapulted sales of the album to double-Platinum status and Garbage tour dates were scheduled internationally. They were nominated for the Best New Artist Award at the 1997 Grammy's, and were suddenly the biggest alt-rock band to hit the mainstream.

They returned in 1997 following the Garbage World Tour to record Version 2.0, which featured a more electronic vibe, but stayed true to their alt-rock heritage. The album was a worldwide success when it was released in 1998 and the Garbage Version 2.0 Tour lasted throughout 1999. They were nominated for two more Grammy's, embarked on a European tour, and were then asked to perform the theme song for a Bond film. An Australian Garbage tour ensued with Alanis Morisette and the band hit the studio to record, Beautiful Garbage. it was regarded by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the "Top Ten Albums of the Year" and sold over a million copies. Garbage tour dates were scheduled on the third leg of U2's Elevation Tour. Following their supporting stint, Garbage toured on the worldwide Beautiful Garbage Tour, their most extensive tour yet.

After an exhaustive tour schedule and a break, Garbage reunited to record Bleed Like Me which was released in 2003. They embarked on the embattled Bleed Like Me Tour, which saw several tour dates cancelled due to various complications including Manson's vocal chord injury and rising tensions. Garbage concluded the Bleed Like Me Tour in Australia in 2005 and announced an extended hiatus. The members worked on separate projects, Vig went back to producing and won a Grammy for Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown in 2010, and then announced that they were regrouping for a new album. The album is expected out in late 2011 and an accompanying tour is being planned.
