Push IT (Garbage Song)

Push It (Garbage Song)

"Push It" is a 1998 song written, produced and performed by alternative rock group Garbage. "Push It" was the lead single released from their second album Version 2.0, in part to bridge the style evolution between the second album and their debut, and to start the campaign with a credible, alternative cross-genre release that would appeal to the band's previous fans before the release of the album's later, more commercial songs. Manson elaborated on the song's dreamy verse structure versus the confrontational chorus: " the schizophrenia that exists when you try to reconcile your desires and demons with the need to fit in. It's a song of reassurance".

The cutting edge music video for "Push It" became critically acclaimed, and received thirteen nominations between the MTV Video Music Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, and the MVPA Music Video Awards. "Push It" was also nominated as Best Alternative Records at the Miami Winter Music Conference.

In 2007, "Push It" was remastered for inclusion on Garbage's greatest hits album Absolute Garbage. Some elements of the remaster were made more noticeable, while some elements were reduced or edited out. A rock version was also serviced to UK radio stations to promote the compilation.
