15 years of 'Version 2.0.'


15 years ago (gosh, i'm old) Garbage reached no.1 on the UK album chart with their second album 'Version 2.0.' This record was a really nice follow-up to their debut album 'Garbage', and quite a surprise as they brought a new sound different from the grunge and rock style of their flawless debut. And while they tried to bring new sounds to their following albums ('Beautiful Garbage' was a nice effort that wins with the years, whereas 'Bleed Like Me' and 'Not Your Kind of People' were ok but failed to impress), they haven't been able to reinvent themselves like they did with their second album.

So, celebrating that, and while everyone remembers 'Push It', 'I Think I'm Paranoid' or 'When I Grow Up' from this record, i'm bringing you my top 5 songs from 'Version 2.0.' that you probably have forgotten, and even though two of them were actually singles, i doubt you'll remember them but trust me, it will be worth it because this album is perfection from beginning to end, a pure jewel to the ears:

Hammering My Head
"I use the ones that I love the best"

4 more:

Medication
"And still you call me co-dependent, somehow you lay the blame on me"

Dumb
"You still don't know what you think of me
You still don't know what you mean to me
You still don't know what to think of me"

The Trick is To Keep Breathing
"Always the one who has to drag her down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around"

Special
"Spread disease about you over town"
